Editors' Review

+

Pikker is a program designed to help users navigate the stock market by simulating stock trades. This isn't a program for those new to trading, though, as it requires just as much knowledge as the real thing.

This program is as complex as reading a stock ticker. There are a world of terms, abbreviations, and fields that need to be meticulously entered to get a strong picture of your proposed trade. By entering trade allocation info, price, commissions, long rules, short rules, and more, a user can replicate an actual trade. This flexibility and freedom will appeal to those wanting to experiment with trades, but not wanting to make mistakes that could be actual financial burdens.

While this function appeals to practically anyone who plays the stock market, Pikker is almost exclusively reserved for users with a hefty knowledge of market terminology. The program's simple display doesn't allow for descriptions or hand-holding of any kind. There is a deep Help menu, but it, too, requires a fair amount of previous stock knowledge.

However, if you are a person with the skills to learn complex material quickly, or simply a user who is familiar with the world of stocks and trading, this will be a valuable download. We strongly discourage downloading Pikker unless you have ample knowledge of the field.

"An undiscovered "gem" of a program"

December 25, 2002

 |  Version: Pikker 1.0.08

Summary

This is the best backtester of a "basket" of stocks or mutual funds i've found.

However, it's NOT limited to a "basket" test as you can also test your trading systems on an individual security if you want to.

Write your own trading rules for staying in the Top Performing "x" out of "y" securites at all times and backtest how in real life your portfolio would have performed.

It's easy to create a custom basket of stocks or funds that you want to try your trading system out on.

It has helped me greatly in a very short period of time, because i could not do a "basket test" quickly or accurately before.

The Help sections and Tutorials are excellent.

This is a unbelieveably powerful program for the money!

"Cool! Saved me hours of work"

December 02, 2002

 |  Version: Pikker 1.0.08

Summary

I was doing this by hand, and spent hours messing with spreadsheets. MetaStock doesn't do what this does -- nothing does! Its way underpriced for what it does.
