Version 6 Beta 5

We are pushing out our next beta release to our testers. So far, the releases have been coming approximately every two weeks. With this release we are testing the ability to pull price updates from Yahoo and Google. We are coming close to our final release. We will work on our import wizard to help our users transition from version 4.2 of OTrader to the new release of Roo-Trader. Your local radio station may not take requests, but we do. If you want to see additional functions, please contact us. We are working through the list we compiled from our users over the past year. However, some items are a higher priority than others. So, please let us know what you need! Thank you for your support! Sincerely, The Roo-Trader Team!

Google Price Updates

To pull price updates from Google Finance, open OTrader on your desktop and then: Menu->Edit->Preferences & Setup -> Security Codes -> Set all codes to update via <Choose Google>…then click Apply…that will update the entire portfolio to get updates from Google. If you want to go back to Yahoo or your custom DDE price update settings, go back to Preferences and select your old choice. We are still working on our central update server. We know some markets are missing from Google and Yahoo and we want to provide that data to you. This server will be tied to our next major software release later this year. Happy Trading! Nik

Version 4.2.6

We released another update to our software. This release allows you to pull price updates from Google. We are looking for feedback from our users on their experiences with the price updates. Our testing was limited on updating our test stocks. The default Yahoo is still set on your clients. If you want to try Google price updates, you need to select that option from your preferences menu settings. Look at the DDE settings and choose Google. Happy Trading! Nik
