Hello TaTrader,
An excellent information of IPO of Infoline really gives the overall view of the company.
Thanks and keep it up
If we go into a BEAR market I don't think this script will do well considering the drop in trading turnover and also their profits.

During bull markets all securities compaies to very well. However in bear markets things are totally different!
