Need software recommendation...

  1. Need software that can chart the ratio of two stocks for trading pairs. I want to chart the ratio of two stocks, as a single pair, in real-time (intraday data) using High, Low, Open, Close. I would like to be able to view a bar chart or candlestick chart of a weight-adjusted (dollar-neutral) pair, i.e. (.75 ABC) / (XYZ) and plot that relationship on a chart. I have Metastock Pro (v10) and Metastock tells me indicators cannot produce bar/candlestick charts so there must be a way to create a composite security that is updated in real time. I created a composite using local/hard-drive daily data and got it to work in a weekly time frame but I need this to work on a 5 min chart – real time. No responses from the Metastock User Groups or Equis BB’s. If there is an off-the-shelf program that accomplishes this then I am open to switching. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
