Compare AmiBroker Editions
Which AmiBroker Edition is suitable for me ?

All Editions of AmiBroker are Realtime Editions. So even if you choose AmiBroker Standard Edition, you will be able to see live charts which are updated realtime. The main difference between AmiBroker Standard Edition and AmiBroker Professional Edition is that while AmiBroker Standard Edition lets you see real-time charts upto 1 min timeframe (smallest candle) and do corresponding analysis (Scanning / Exploration / Back-testing and Optimization on charts upto 1 min timeframe), AmiBroker Professional does not have any such limitation and can let you see charts of any duration (5 sec., 15 sec., or even tick chart) and do corresponding analysis. There are other differences too and for detailed comparison, please see the comparison table below.

(Professional Edition can work with EOD data too, but real-time features (like real-time quote) of course require real-time data source)

* - the number of threads depends on number of logical processors on your computer and number of symbols under test. For details see: Efficient use of Multithreading.

In the future the Professional Edition may have additional extra features not available in Standard Edition.
