Trade-Radar Stock Inspector update -- especially important for those who track weekly and monthly data

This is a quick post to let all of you know that a new version of Trade-Radar Stock Inspector is available.  We are up to version 6.0.10 now.

What has changed --

I received an email from a trial user the other day who said that he was encountering an error when he tried to enter a symbol for a stock on the Bombay stock exchange. It seemed to work fine for daily data but the program blew up when trying to get weekly or monthly data.

In solving this problem (the field that contains the symbol had to be made larger in the database), it got me started looking at how the program processes weekly and monthly data. And this led me to fix a few other things.

You may not have noticed that the program attempts to pull in intra-day data when the markets are open and you are retrieving daily data. It does a similar thing when looking at weekly data and monthly data. Where the problem occurred is that a new record was created for mid-week or mid-month data, leading to extra data points that shouldn't have been there.

The new version simply looks at the current day's data and determines whether any changes are needed to the data point for the current week or month. For example, increasing the weekly high might be required or adding the day's volume to the weekly volume accumulated thus far.  No more strange looking records are left in the database.

In addition to the changes listed above, we have also corrected a few other issues including the display of an incorrect number on the TradeRadar Technical Analysis tab on the Dashboard screen. The evaluation of the data was done correctly so the LED lit up as it should; however, the Latest Price data value displayed was not right. I'm sure that led to some confusion.

How to get it --

As always, anyone who already has a registered copy installed on their PC is welcome to get the update for free. Anyone else who is interested in starting or continuing their 45-day evaluation is also welcome to download it at our Download page. Just click one of the "Download Now" buttons and it will take you to the page where you can download the full install package.

If you already have a recent version installed, you can download just the program executable by clicking [ this special Download link ]. Just be sure to copy the downloaded EXE file into the folder where the Trade-Radar Stock Inspector is installed. That would typically be C:\Program Files\Trade-Radar\Trade-Radar Stock Inspector

I encourage you to give version 6.0.10 of Trade-Radar Stock Inspector a try. And be sure to report any errors that you encounter. I am always happy to fix problems and make the software better for everyone.
