The MetaStockAustralia.com website is run by well known trader and author, Stuart McPhee. After using MetaStock for his own personal trading for 20 years (since 1999), Stuart decided to share his knowledge of the software and its formula language with other fellow MetaStock users so they could enjoy the productivity and flexibility he enjoys.
MetaStock is a full-featured, professional-level charting program. MetaStock was first released in late 1985 and in response to an increasing demand for a real-time version of MetaStock, MetaStock RT was released in July 1992.
Since then, numerous versions of both the end-of-day and real-time versions of MetaStock have been released. MetaStock is now used by hundreds of thousands of traders in over 100 different countries, and has been helping traders for nearly 40 years – an eternity in trading software.
