Thomson Reuters MetaStock is a software program that is designed to help you make better decisions about when to buy and sell in the stock, FOREX, futures, and commodities markets.
What is the difference between End-of-day and Real-Time?
Real-time traders use intra-day data (prices that are constantly updating throughout the day) to make decisions about when to buy and sell during the trading day, this also allows you to look at different time frames (examples, 1 Min, 8 Min, 30 Min etc.). End-of-day traders access their data (Date, Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, and Open Interest) for the day after the markets have closed. We have products designed specifically for each type of trader.

What is the difference between the subscription version of MetaStock and the purchase version of MetaStock?
MetaStock can either be subscribed to on an ongoing basis or purchased outright. The subscription includes the MetaStock software and accompanying data feed and can be paid for on a monthly or yearly basis. If the subscription is cancelled, neither the software nor the data feed are accessible.
The purchase version contains the MetaStock software only and is purchased for a one-time charge. The software is always accessible because you own it and have paid for it outright but would not allow you to plot any data without an active data subscription. With this option, you will have to sign up for a data feed separately to run data into the program. Our sales department can help you decide which option is best for you.
