5) Where can I update my software and data set?
You can update your data set by going into the software itself and clicking on the "daily update" button on the left hand side.

Here you can select which version you are entitled to and then you will have an option to install any of the previous weekly data sets. You may also use this to back test any of the previous weeks.

8) The Timeliness ranks in your pdf-formatted reports on companies are often different than those in the Value Line Stock Screener. I find this confusing. Can you tell me why they are not the same?
Yes. It is a question of timing. Our full-page company reports are updated once every three months on a regular cycle. The Timeliness ranks that appear in those reports are the ones that were current when the report was printed. (You can find a date in the lower right corner at the end of the analytical text.)
The Stock Screener (and the Summary & Index), on the other hand, is updated every week and includes the very latest ranks. If there has been a change in rank since the full report was revised, the new rank will be included in the Screener, and it will be different than the one in the company report.
To find the most recent Timeliness (or Safety or Technical) rank, be sure to look at the lastest information. You can always find it in the Stock Screener or in the Summary & Index.
9) Can I get real time quotes on your site?
Currently quotes displayed on www.valueline.com are delayed by up to 15 minutes.
10) While using Firefox 2.0 or higher, I click the button "Close Browser" but nothing happens. Is something wrong with my Firefox?
No, Firefox intentionally disables certain scripts. You may configure the Firefox browser by doing the following:
1) Type "about:config" in Address bar
2) Go to "dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows" under preference name.
3) Change the value from "false" to "true." By default in FF2+, the value is set to "false."
