1. INSTALLING ECON.

Insert the Installation disk in disk drive A: or B:
Type: a:install (or b:install)
You will see the following screen:

DC ECONOMETRICS
Press Enter On Each Option to Verify

Install Files onto Drive :C You may change these
Path :\ECON default settings


Install ECON Files: Yes No Answer Yes to install



You will need about 1 megabyte of free disk space to install econ.

If you obtained a PKZIP version from a bulletin board, simply PKUNZIP
the files to your chosen directory. There is no installation routine
for the BBS version.


2. RUNNING THE PROGRAM

1. Boot up in MS-DOS
2. Change directory to the \econ directory
(cd \econ)
3. Type: ECON (and press Enter)
4. The program will load, and the shareware
message will come up. Hit any key and the main
menu will appear.


3. IF ECON WON'T RUN

You need 640K memory and DOS 3.3 or above. You can find out how much
memory you have by typing chkdsk at a DOS prompt. It will tell you how
much memory you have and how many bytes are free. You need 640K (655360)
total memory and at least 512K (524288) free.

Note to Windows PIF users:
If you set Econ up in Windows using the PIF editor, be sure use full
screen, not windowed. Set it up using File, New, New Program Object
from the Windows menu and this will not be a problem.

If you get Error 4: Too many files open:
Edit your config.sys file in your root directory.
cd \
edit config.sys
Find the line that says "FILES=10" or files=anything.
Change it to "FILES=30"

About the program:

Econ forecasts S&P 500, T bond and T bill interest rates, zero coupon
bonds, gold prices, and inflation using econometric models derived by
multiple linear regression.

Once a month you enter 9 numbers and get statistically optimized
forecasts for 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months in the future.
The program has a full help facility by simply pressing the F1 key.

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, mouse active program which runs on IBM-PC and compatibles,
640K memory and a hard drive are needed and a VGA monitor is recommended.

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 $49.95 you will receive a new disk with
current data files and a printed manual.
