ECON: Econometric Stock Market Forecasting Models

Econ forecasts S&P 500, T bond and T bill interest rates, and inflation.
Once a month you enter 8 numbers and get statistically optimized
forecasts for 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months in the future.

There is also an asset allocation routine which tells you how much of
each asset to hold with conservative and aggressive strategies. It's
a menu driven program which runs on IBM-PC and compatibles, 256K
memory needed.

This software is copyrighted by DC Econometrics and all rights are
reserved. The file econ.txt is a lengthy manual, this readme.txt file
is a short version to get you started fast. Data must be entered
monthly, it is likely that your data files are not current on this
disk. When you register for $39.99 you will receive a new disk with
current data files and a printed manual.

The first thing to do is to make a backup copy because disks are
fragile.

To make backup to floppy disk:

1. Boot up in MS-DOS
2. When you get the A> prompt type: diskcopy

The DOS disk may need to be in the A drive
if you have no hard disk. The computer will
respond:
Insert SOURCE diskette in drive A:

3. Insert the ECON disk and press any key
4. When it asks for TARGET disk, insert a blank
diskette.
5. Verify that the following files are located on
your TARGET disk:

ECON.EXE UNEMP
SP500 CPI
TBILL SPPEM
TBOND SPDIVM
PRIME ISTYR
ECON.TXT README.TXT

To make backup to hard disk:

1. Boot up in MS-DOS
2. Put SOURCE diskette in drive A
3. Create a directory on the hard disk
mkdir \econ
4. Copy files to hard disk
copy a:*.* c:\econ
5. Verify that the following files are located in
the directory:

ECON.EXE UNEMP
SP500 CPI
TBILL SPPEM
TBOND SPDIVM
PRIME ISTYR
ECON.TXT README.TXT

Running the Program

1. Boot up in MS-DOS
2. Insert the ECON disk into the floppy drive or
move to the \econ directory (cd \econ)
3. Type: ECON (and press Enter)
4. The program will load, and the shareware
message will come up. Press return. You
will then see a list of options for output
devices. I usually choose 1 for screen,
or 2 for printer.
