"Throughout my years as a financial journalist, writing on stock market investment for The Citizen, The Star, The Business Day and The Financial Mail, I have mostly relied upon ShareFriend Executive and ShareFriend Pro to identify the shares most likely to gain, or those in danger of losing ground.  I am able to pick which sectors should be highlighted, those that should be left alone; when gold or oil are likely to change direction.  The data necessary to compile my charts is provided by PDS Data Centre.  Having now retired from journalism but still running several portfolios of shares, a daily download is all I need, but could choose more frequent downloads if I wished.  With the holdings in my various portfolios automatically updated, taking split-second action at exactly the right time is child’s play."

"Whenever I have a problem I can phone PDSnet for help.  They go out of their way to assist me, be it on Teamviewer or sending someone to my office.  I firmly believe that one of the reasons for their success is that they provide full support and a download service in MetaStock format plus providing the client with knowledgeable trained technical support staff. Their software program, ShareFriend Pro, is also commendable and must rank as one of the most user-friendly and easiest to use charting software available on the local market."
