Gains metaplots, timelines, GL graphics
Metaview, a stock research and 3D market visualization tool, has been updated to v2.0, adding additional 3D features such as metaplots of volume data and 3D plotting of headlines and historic events. Developer Lyle Andrews has also added a "Dragnet" feature that searches for news stories related to stocks being analyzed, new faster OpenGL graphics and a more streamlined client/server architecture.
The software runs on Macs sporting 10.5 or later (G5 or Intel Mac recommended). The program, which costs $50, also requires a $15/month subscription to a special data feed. Videos and downloads can be found at the developer's web site.
