Jan 25, 2001, 23:10 (0 Talkback[s])

"A new service on the World Wide Web enables Linux users to access a full range of US stockmarket data and analysis tools via the Internet. The service, 3G, can be found at www.mytradingtool.com. It can scan the entire NASDAQ database in about 20 seconds looking for patterns in the price data or signs of upward-trending activity. 3G provides a range of analysis tools and access to data for over 9000 equities traded on the NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ."

"The user downloads a client software application which communicates with a US server site. Each time the user starts the application the client software self-checks to ensure it is the latest version. If not the current version is automatically downloaded. The advantage of ASP delivery for users is absence of software installation and upgrades, and the need to update data on a daily basis, usually required by market analysis software. Improvements to the service are delivered automatically and continuously via the web, allowing the developers to rapidly incorporate enhancements."

"Paul Tetley, the Technical Manager of software developers BDG Australia says users can chart stock prices, perform searches for market activity and patterns in the price data, display indicators and save their own preferences and watchlists onto the server for later retrieval.They can also read other's comments on a stock and submit their own comments."
