Stock Update Package For Managing Your Money
The Micro Education Corporation of America has expanded its offerings by introducing Managing The Market, a stock price update package for the IBM-PC that automatically accesses Dow Jones News/Retrieval Service.
    Managing The Market is a cost-effective communications program that allows you to update securities automatically via modem. The program can be used in conjunction with Andrew Tobias' financial package Managing Your Money, or by itself with spreadsheets like Lotus 1-2-3. An onscreen stopwatch helps keep track of time spent online. Once connected to the service, all data is stored in a file so the user can log off quickly (reducing phone charges) and review the information at his or her leisure. Users can also create customized "hot lists" of up to 225 securities to check key prices at a glance, saving the time and expense of running through their entire list of securities.
    Managing The Market runs on the IBM-PC and PCjr (with 256K), and requires DOS 2.0 or any later version. Suggested retail price is $149.95, which includes a free password for Dow Jones News/Retrieval Service (a $75 value) and an hour's free connect time.
