1. IntroductionThank you for using iTrade !
iTrade is a Weekly Trading system written in Python featuring quotes importation and stock charting, candlestick and technical analysis, automated alerts, portfolio management and evaluation, and much much more.
2.1. Installing under Windows
iTrade Installation procedure concerns Windows XP.
For previous Windows versions, you need to verify that Windows Installer (MSI) is available ; otherwise, you have to download and install it from a website like http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=cebbacd8-c094-4255-b702-de3bb768148f&DisplayLang=en for Windows 95, 98, and Me or http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4b6140f9-2d36-4977-8fa1-6f8a0f5dca8f&DisplayLang=en for Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0
NB: installation procedure is manual ; authors will provide a full binary package with an easier installation process as soon as iTrade software will be more stable and more "end-user".
Installing Python version 2.5
Installing wxPython version 22.214.171.124
Installing Numpy version 1.0.1
Installing MatPlotLib version 0.87.7
After downloading these four software, and if you don't already do that during the process, you have to install them in this order : Python, wxPython, Numpy then Matplotlib.
Then launch the software using the shortcut.
Also, do not forget to read at a regular basis the website http://itrade.sourceforge.net/index.htm to know about the news and, if proposed, update your release of iTrade software.

Language packs are inside the data/ folder with the following filename convention : lang.messages.txt, where lang can be FR or US. You can edit these files are your own peril !
