Permanent Program

The initial program you install is a dated program. You will receive a permanent key with installation instructions, which removes the date restrictions and ties ProfitTrader to your MetaStock platform, via email before the expiration date. It is highly recommended that you save the permanent key in a safe place in the event that you need to reinstall ProfitTrader. Your permanent key will only work on the same system of the intial installation. If you install on a new system, a new temp key will be generated. We will need the new temp key to calcuclate the new permanent key. We provide two new permanent keys per year. If you need more than two permanent keys, there is a $35 support charge.

Supplementary Instructional Material
We have a tremendous amount of educational material on our Web site explaining Walter's market approach and how he applies his timing indicators.

The PDF Library contains various market and cycle reports.

The Cycle Review and Market Forecast using the ProfitTrader for MetaStock program for several markets will shorten your learning curve. Note that Walter's analysis was done in the summer of 2002 and that the same analytical and trading concepts apply to today's markets.

There is also a free "Cycle Analyst's Seminar" on the site that you might find helpful. The charts were done in TradeStation, not MetaStock, but the educational content still applies.

Our purpose is to help you make money over the long term, by teaching you how to use cycles and cycle trading patterns to evaluate and trade the markets. Walter's many years experience as an advisor has taught him that you will not make money over the long term unless you actively pursue your own analysis, setting up your own trades and pulling the trigger yourself.

We look forward to adding the element of timing to your market trading approach. If you have questions, please feel free to email us.




Upgrading from ProfitTrader for MetaStock EOD to ProfitTrader for MetaStock Intraday
If you have upgraded your ProfitTrader 7.0 from EOD to Intra and have already installed the ProfitTrader for MetaStock EOD, below are the details of how to delete the files that were created when you installed the ProfitTrader EOD program.

  2. From within MetaStock, go to the "Tools" menu and "Indicator Builder". Highlight all the "WB indicators. This can be done by clicking on the first one in the list, then hold down shift and highlight the last one in the list. Then click on delete. This takes care of the Indicators.
  3. Now, to delete the Expert Advisors. go back to the "Tools" menu and choose "Expert Advisor". You will find three advisors: TBand CT, TBand TC, TBand TT. As with the indicators, highlight those three Advisors and click delete. This completes the "internal" deletion of the EOD tools.

The next step occurs in Windows.

  1. Shut down MetaStock. The easiest way to do this is from your desktop, open "My Computer" and open your C drive (assuming MetaStock is installed on C. (If it is installed elsewhere you will need to locate it).
  2. Open "Program Files" and then "Equis".
  3. In the "Equis" folder open the folder called "MetaStock". Click on the "Charts" folder and delete all the files that have the _ followed by a number and then Wb. These are the ProfitTrader 7.0 templates.
