Release notes available at Version HistoryWithout a valid license, you will only be able to run Deriscope for evaluation purposes under certain usage constraints for 7 days since first installation.
The restrictions that apply when you run Deriscope in evaluation mode are:
Access is possible only during the first 7 days since the time of first installation.
During that period, all Deriscope-generated spreadsheet formulas will work properly only for the first 30 minutes of each Excel session.
Up to 15 minutes of time spent in reading any integrated Deriscope tutorials or warnings that typically appear at startup will not count in these 30 minutes.
After the initial 30 minutes have passed, you may still use the wizard for another 15 minutes per Excel session. This will allow you, for example, to calculate instrument prices by clicking the Go button and choosing the option Run Function in Task Pane.
Choose the button that matches the bitness of your Excel installation (which may differ from the bitness of your operating system).
All Windows Excel versions from Excel 2000 to Excel 2016 are supported.
You are adviced to uninstall your previous Deriscope version before you install a new release.
After installation, you will notice a new ribbon item labelled "Deriscope" each time you start Excel. This action is completely anonymous and requires no registration or license.
Deriscope installation is user-specific and requires no admin rights. More than one users on the same computer will have to install their separate user-specific Deriscope Add-In but they can benefit from sharing the same license. You can easily uninstall Deriscope at any time through control panel as you would uninstall any other application.
All usage restrictions are lifted by purchasing one of the following licenses:
The lifetime access applies only to versions that have been released within 12 months from the date you acquired the license.
You may download, install and use any version that has been released within these 12 months.
It also entitles you during the same period to customer support through here.
All Deriscope functionality described on this site becomes accessible, with the sole exception of the VaR (Value at Risk) calculation on portfolios that contain more than 5 assets.
This license is meant to be activated once on only one computer system and can be shared afterwards by all users who login on that computer system. Please note that two different operating systems installed on the same computer count as separate computer systems. The 1 User in the license name refers only to the fact that no more than one users can access the license simultaneously. License transfer from one computer system to another computer system is also generally possible.
Internet access is not required for activating the license nor is needed for the daily deriscope usage, except if and when live data are requested through the Deriscope interface.
This license is particularly useful if you need to install Deriscope on two computers (typically a PC and a laptop or at work and home). This license is necessary if you want to work with both the 32 and 64 bit editions of Excel, since these two editions are necessarily installed on different computer systems.
You can use them without license, but then the 5 minutes usage constraint mentioned above applies.
Unlimited usage is granted under any of the licenses offered at this page.
They provide you with actual bid-ask quotes on stocks and currencies and allow you to place simulated market orders.
Since the quotes are not time-delayed, you can link your trading decisions on real time news feeds.
You may also use Excel's flexible spreadsheet environment to design and test your own trading signals.
