Download Premium Markets at sourceforge.net.
Premium Markets is java based and requires version 6 or higher. Please, do check that you have an up to date version of java installed. You can install java from here.
Premium markets archive is available at source forge.
Once the archive (pm.jar) is fully downloaded, your web browser should prompt you to open it. If it doesn't, right click the downloaded pm.jar file in the download list of your browser and open it.
Depending on your Operating System, browser and java version, you may be prompted that the software can't be installed for security reasons.
As a work around, follow the steps below.
Some browser will offer you the possibility to open the folder where the archive as been downloaded using a right click in the download history list.
If not, you will have to run your file explorer and go in the folder where the archive has been downloaded by your browser. This is usually a folder called 'Downloads' in your user directory.
When you have done this, just right click on the file pm.jar and open it. On some Operating Systems, a double click may also work but don't unpack the file. Your Operating System should recognise the file and run Java.
Again you may be prompted that the file can be run for security reasons.
If this is the case try the second work around below.
Open a terminal and use 'cd' to go to the folder where the archive has been downloaded by your browser.
Then run :
java -jar pm.jar
Unfortunately following Oracle security reenforcement in its latest java versions.
You will first have to set up your java setting to the minimum requirement or authorise the installation beforehand
Premium markets is available at source forge for a direct installation using jnlp technology.
If java is properly installed on your operating system and enabled for your web browser, you should be prompted to open the above link using
Java Web Launcher
First check that you have java installed.

Java Web Launcher,
Java Web Start in the
Other applications drop down list offered by your browser.
#### Java Web Start Error: #### Unsigned application requesting unrestricted access to system
This means that your previous installation of java has failed. This is a known problem with java 6 and 7. To fix the problem, follow Oracle instructions.
You can also try to directly download the installation archive. When it is all on your hard drive, double click on the downloaded archive in your file explorer. Don't unpack it. Your Operating System should recognise the file and run Java.
You probably don't have java installed. Otherwise, you can also try and open a command terminal, cd to the download folder and issue the following command :
java -jar pm.jar
A few years ago, desperate to finding a free financial technical analysis tool that would fit my needs (i.e. generating buy and sell signals based on stock market historical data and technical analysis), I decided to implement my own solution.
Premium Markets Standalone App is an automated stock market analysis system.
It implements a graphical environment for monitoring and editing stock market technical analysis indicators and oscillators, generating signals, back testing, managing portfolios and charting. In its advanced packaging, not provided under this license, it also includes :
Premium Markets offers charting for EOD quotations of user defined portfolios.
The quotations representation can be set relative giving the ability to compare the performance of stocks against each other within a portfolio. Quotation charting can be set in various ways
You will also be able to chart technical analysis indicators and oscillators and their buy and sell signals. In its advanced version Premium Markets also displays the results of a neural network based forecasting analysis.
With Premium Markets you can edit and create your own indicators as a composition of more than a hundred common technical analysis functions.
You first specialize one or several indicators by parametrising and making composition of existing technical analysis functions.
You then can use these indicators to create an event calculator formula with bullish and bearish conditions.
In order to make it easier we also provide command completion and suggestions.
In this example, we have created two indicators :
The former will calculate the Macd and the latter its signal.
We can then use them to create an event calculator that will trigger events on Macd zero crossing and signal crossing as follow :
is bullish when ( sampleMacd crosses up 0.0 and sampleMacd is above sampleMacdSgn );
is bearish when ( sampleMacd crosses down 0.0 and sampleMacd is below sampleMacdSgn );
Premium market as a technical analysis indicator editor also provides a more advanced grammar for more flexibility. It comes with additional keywords like : spanning, over and for. When it makes sense, adding these keywords will change the result as follow :
For instance close crosses up 10 spanning 3 days means that close was below 10 three days ago and close is now above 10.
Keyword can also be combined as in the following :
|above, below, equals threshold||Does not make sense. As the condition is a status in time not an event in time.||OK||OK|
|above, below, equals historical data||Does not make sense. As the condition is a status in time not an event in time.||NA||OK|
|crosses up, down threshold||OK||OK||Does not make sense. As the condition is an event in time not a status in time.|
|goes up, down %||OK||NA||OK|
|crosses up, down historical data||OK||OK||Does not make sense. As the condition is an event in time not a status in time.|
|high and lows||OK||NA||NA|
|Reverses up, down||OK||NA||Does not make sense. As the condition is an event in time not a status in time.|
Note : not every condition implements all the keywords. This is also because it doesn't always make sense. See the current availability of keywords, at the time of writing this in this table.
Note : keywords must be inserted in this order : spanning, over and for. Ominiting those which are not available for a particular Condition.
Note : days above mean calendar open days, not quotation availability days.
Note : these additional keywords are not included in the auto completion (yet?) and need to be typed in in full. All available or none must be specified.
