Getting updates of the stock analysis software (How to get latest version?)

Our team is continuously working on making's chart software better so the software is updated regularly. The Java environment always checks if there is a newer version of the chart software on the server of and runs that one. If despite Java's automatic update you experience that a just announced feature is missing from the chart software you run on your local computer do the following:

  1. Click the Java icon in Control panel (either Start menu/Control panel or Start menu / Settings / Control panel - if you are in "Category view", change to "Classic view"). Click the Settings button in the "Temporary Internet files" section (in the bottom).
  2. Uncheck "Keep temporary files..." (but keep "Temporary Files Settings" window open) and restart your browser. Check's chart software whether it contains the necessary modifications.
  3. If above step does not solve the problem removing all Java applets and other applications from the temporary storage (cache) may be the solution. Click "Delete files" and check and check "Applications and applets" if possible, then click OK. This will delete all Java applications and applets from the cache. Later these will always be donwloaded before using them ensuring that always the latest version is used. Restarting the browser may be needed after this step as well.

Why Java?'s chart software is using Java applet technology just like some internet banking applications. Programs written in Java are run on a virtual computer which allows execution on multiple platforms like Windows or Linux. If your computer does not have proper Java support, our site offers the installation of it any time you attempt to start's chart software. If Java is not installed automatically pleas follow the instructions of the Java install guide.

From users point of view this solution has the benefit that there is no chart software you should install on your computer - it is accessible from home, from your office etc. You will receive software updates automatically since Java always checks our server if there is a newer version of the chart software. (If you experience that software is not updated please check out the "Getting updates of the stock analysis software" section)
