For full-time trading which software package would be the best option between ShareMagic, Amibroker, Metastock, and Market Master.

Goldbull i called GoldPlatinum securities on metastock pro and told me that for 20k for program and R850 pm you get 1 minute intraday data.This is a bit rich for my blood.I'm using metastock end of day and cant complain.

Goldbull - it's a matter of personal preference. Whatever you are comfortable with. Although I like Metastock, others swear by programs like Prime Charts and Share Magic (which is excellent value) - I think there is a version available without the fundamental stuff (which I think is even better value, especially since you can get all of the fundamental stuff on this website anyway). I started by using Charts on Quote.com, which is great because its free and full of info on tech analysis, although some of the data on some of the Alsi40 shares is wrong at times. Try it before you buy anything (here is a link to the Gold chart: http://new.quote.com/forex/chart.action?chartUi.studies=&sym=XAU+A0-FX&chartUi.bartype=CANDLE&chartU...). Try it to get a feel for charting before you shell out any money.
