How can I create a chart from the Insight Trader data files on the Data Files page of the free website?

You should already have unzipped the files and put them in your Winit/A folder if you have split directories or Winit/Data folder if you do not have split directories.

Launch Insight Trader

View

Kwikchart

This gives you a chart of your default security

The file with the data in it is called <austdata>, so type:

N

austdata

Enter

You will now have the P/E ratio chart on screen

To plot the other charts:

View

Chart Specs

Change the second dialog box (Subtract 2 fields...)

For 10 year bonds, leave it at 2

For 90-day bills from 2 to 3

For Dividend Yield from 2 to 4

For Earnings Yield from 2 to 6

OK

OK

And you will now have each of the charts on your screen

I suggest that you save each one as a saved chart so that you can easily recall it again when you want to see it when more data has been added to it.
