How does the free 30-day trial work?
The free 30 day trial starts the first time you run StockMarketEye. During those 30 days, you have complete access to almost all of StockMarketEye’s features. There are only minor functional limitations as compared to the purchasable version. Those limitations are:
*In the trial version, backup/restore is not available.
*In the trial version, the on-line synchronization is not available.
*In the trial version, printing to PDF shows a watermark on the document.
*7 days before your free trial expires, StockMarketEye will alert you to the fact that your trial will soon expire. You can continue using and benefiting from StockMarketEye by purchasing a subscription.
Can StockMarketEye track stock options?

Unfortunately, you can not search for option symbols with StockMarketEye’s symbol search feature. You will need to find the option symbols you are interested in on the Yahoo! Finance site here. Then copy the symbols you are interested in into StockMarketEye. Charts are not available for options.
Does StockMarketEye use realtime quotes?
Yes, it is possible to get real-time quotes for US, Indian and Chinese markets. Please see the Data Providers section of our User’s Guide for more details.
Can StockMarketEye use a proxy server to access the internet?

How do “streaming” quotes work in StockMarketEye?
StockMarketEye provides a flexible quote system that lets you control how often your stock symbols are updated with their current prices. When you choose “Streaming quote data” the prices of the stocks in your Watchlist or Portfolio will be updated automatically at regular intervals by StockMarketEye. If you choose “On-Demand quote data” the prices of the stocks in your Watchlist or Portfolio will be updated only when you tell StockMarketEye to refresh the prices. You can do this by selecting the “Get Quotes” button in the toolbar or going to the main menu and selecting Portfolio/Watchlist -> Get Quotes. By default, all Watchlists and Portfolios are initially set to use “Streaming” quotes.
You can view and modify the quote system used for each Watchlist and Portfolio individually from the “Live Quotes” tab in the Settings dialogue. To open a Watchlist or Portfolio’s settings dialogue, simply double-click on the Watchlist or Portfolio’s name in the list on the left, or go to the main menu and select Portfolio/Watchlist -> Settings.
