This software package generates custom tailored
macros without the hassle of repeating long, complicated key sequences. With MS_MACRO you
can program Metastock to make your weekly chart book obsolete. You can program Metastock
to print out as many charts of anything you want, with all of your favorite indicators,
automatically. You then never have to wait for your Monday chart books again.
This program is a dissembler that turns Metastock machine readable macro files to ASCII
friendly programming information, and an assembler that will convert the user modified
ASCII text file back into a legal Metastock Professional macro file, ready to run. This
allows you actually program Metastock to do anything.
The easy manipulation of a Metastock macro makes it possible to update/tailor reports
to correct mistakes, update for contract rollovers, and allows the replication of similar
key sequences for multiple data files allowing the generation of custom daily charts.
Modules of Metastock commands can be included into a macro source file with a include file
command just like in a high level programming language.
This allows you to develop reusable, standardized Metastock procedures. The ticker
strings for your data files can also be replaced by symbolic constants in your macro
source code. This allows you to simply update the ticker strings in an include file, just
recompile your macros and you are done with contract roll-over without having to touch any
of your macro source files. MS_MACRO also supports a test mode that allows you to develop
and test macro sequences before printing them. Sample macro source files and MSDOS batch
files are included, which fully document how to automate daily chart generation.
