Market Technologies Announces The Release Of VantagePoint Intermarket Analysis Software Version 7.0.

Wesley Chapel, FL, January 26, 2007 — Louis B. Mendelsohn, CEO and President  of Market Technologies, announced today that  the privately-owned, trading software company has released VantagePoint Intermarket Analysis Software Version 7.0.  VantagePoint 7.0 includes a diverse selection of new market categories and a variety of new features designed to improve traders’  VantagePoint user experience.

For the first time since its inception in 1991, VantagePoint now forecasts individual stocks. Version 7.0 makes predictions on approximately 100 stocks, representing major companies in the following sectors: Basic Materials, Conglomerates, Consumer Goods, Financial, Healthcare, Industrial Goods, Services, Technology, and Utilities. This brings VantagePoint’s total market categories to 19 (shown below), which comprise a total of 200 individual markets.

The number of intermarkets that VantagePoint analyzes when making market forecasts  has increased by 16, bringing the total number of intermarkets to 25. This ensures the high degree of predictive accuracy VantagePoint customers have come to expect will be maintained as the world economy and financial markets continue to become more globalized and interconnected. 

Along with the additional market forecasting capability, VantagePoint 7.0 also has added many new features. Practical information about specific contracts, including the data provider symbol, data file start and end dates, and actual values for specific days can now be displayed. VantagePoint now charts the Predicted Long Term Crossover and Predicted Triple Crossover in addition to the Predicted Short Term Crossover, Predicted Medium Term Crossover, and Predicted High and Low. Plus, several new leading technical indicators that forecast MACD, RSI, and Stochastics have also been added, which can be used as confirmation filters to assist in trading decisions.

Individual charts and reports can now have different settings applied to them individually rather than only universally, providing a completely customizable viewing experience. Customers now have the ability to Zoom In and Zoom Out on charts and can tailor the number of trading days being viewed at a single time. Vertical and Horizontal Tab Groups now make it easy to view charts and reports side-by-side. Customers can now build custom portfolios allowing for quick access to the charts and reports of greatest interest.  A portfolio saves the custom settings for each chart and report and their arrangement on the screen.

“The Research and Development staff has done an outstanding job in the development of Version 7.0. The entire Market Technologies team is proud of these value-added  VantagePoint innovations,” said Lane Mendelsohn, Vice President. “We are especially excited about the new Stocks categories and the potential trading opportunities they can provide our customers. With over 200 hundred markets and nineteen categories to choose from, our VantagePoint customers can cherry pick the very best trading opportunities.”
