Due to requests from some users of SMAP-2/3 and NNSTP-2 tools, from now there is an option to disable input data validation. All our software tools always have been built with the variety of automatic features including input data checking. The validation module has a few filters to ensure that data satisfy basic requirements. For instance, a change of price in more than 10 times during two trading days in a row considered as invalid series data for statistical methods. With the validation turned on, the module rejects such data and informs a user about possible problem. It is recommended to use a default option with the validation On.
Investment Analyzer InvAn-3/4 has been updated to fix a date format compatibility issue for the latest MS Windows versions. This update is recommended for the users who live in the other regions than North America. To keep your software tools up-to-date, visit Addaptron Software download page for the latest updates.
SMAP-2/3 and NNSTP-2 software tools have been updated with minor improvements. New version allows narrowing input data (adjusting start or/and end dates) for calculations in a more convenient way. After opening selected file, users can narrow the period for further processing without using an additional button.

Addaptron Software has released an upgraded SMAP with an advanced feature to enable performing additional in-depth cycle analysis.

A new SMAP-2 version has been released with a new feature and minor improvements. Now stock traders can use SMAP-2 for intraday data. To work with intraday data, users should copy own TXT-files into input subfolder for processing. As usually, EOD CSV-files are downloaded from the Internet. The software determines the format of files automatically (the format details of intraday TXT-files can be found in Users Manual).
SMAP-2 has been added an additional flexibility. The latest versions of SMAP-2 automatically re-distribute fitting sensitivity within historical period, since present data exert more influence on the future than past data. The program fits better the recent data rather than older data. The previous versions of SMAP-2 used some average value of present/past ratio weights. Now users have the option to tune an optimal value of this parameter in order to find the best prediction at particular conditions.
