20+ years of Reuters data available through leader in market analysis software

SALT LAKE CITY, March 30, 2001 - Today marks the beginning of a new era in technology for professional and institutional investors as a new software application, Reuters MetaStock® Professional, makes its debut. Reuters MetaStock Professional is a total solution for charting and technical analysis of market data. With this release, it becomes the first leader in market analysis software to be compatible with the Reuters Data Backup Unit (DBU), allowing for seamless integration and charting of the wide-ranging historical Reuters data stored in the DBU.

Equis® International, Inc. (a Reuters company, NASDAQ: RTRSY), the maker of Reuters MetaStock Professional, has produced award winning technical analysis software for 17 years. However, this is the first software release that is compatible with the DBU. Running side by side on the same desktop, Reuters MetaStock Professional perfectly complements the data displays, news and analytics found in Reuters 3000 Xtra and other Reuters applications.

"We've made a perfect match with the Reuters DBU and MetaStock's DataOnDemandTM technology," says Equis president and CEO Allan McNichol. "MetaStock Pro's DataOnDemand data retrieval technology allows a trader quick and easy access to the vast amount of data in the DBU, enough for the deepest and most serious analysis." And, he says, MetaStock is fully prepared to perform the rigorous technical analysis that top-level traders need for their high-pressure decisions.

Seamless Integration: DataOnDemand and the DBU

DataOnDemand is a technology designed by Equis for quick retrieval of market data stored on the Internet with other versions of MetaStock. Now, in Reuters MetaStock Professional, it has been applied to allow traders on-demand access to data that has been stored to a local or shared DBU.

"The integration between MetaStock and Reuters data is smoother than ever before," notes product manager Paul [censored]sh. Whenever traders enter a Reuters Instrument Code (RIC), they get a chart based on data from the Reuters feed. It even allows access to instruments they have been following with other applications-equities, futures, indices, foreign exchanges, economic indicators, and more. In other words, any history built with the Reuters DBU will be accessible in Reuters MetaStock Professional.

Reuters MetaStock Professional allows traders to retrieve up to 20 years of daily history (and over 10,000 ticks) of the instruments they have been following. They can also retrieve data in increments of one minute, five minutes, one week, and more. In addition, traders can access the Reuters DBU for current real-time and intraday data for nearly every major exchange in the world that they have permissioned.

Professional-Level Analysis Power

Reuters MetaStock Professional also offers power and speed for analyzing data gathered from the DBU, creating an advantage for professional traders in their competitive arena. Its features include:

Flexible charting with favorites folders for easy organization; SmartChartsTM so that important changes are never lost; individual chart toolbars; customizable templates and layouts; and 9 different razor-sharp charting styles

Over 120 line studies and indicators, including Ichimoku Kinko, Linear Regression, Moving Average (7 variations), Stochastics, MACD, Relative Strength Index, and more.

Indicator Builder and Function Library for creating user-defined or proprietary analysis tools; System Tester for testing theories on historical data; Expert Advisor for automated pop-up commentary, alerts and more; and The ExplorerTM, which screens, scans, and ranks thousands of instruments.
