TOKYO, Dec. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Japan Macro Advisors Inc. (JMA) has launched "My Charts," a set of web-based analytical tools to help economists and decision makers stay on top of the Japanese economy. Building upon the free and constantly updated economic database JMA provides to the public, My Charts functions as a personal chartbook you can easily maintain and instantly convert to PowerPoint slides.
"Economists and analysts such as myself spend too much time not analyzing, but searching and downloading data, updating charts and tables, copy-pasting them to presentation slides. Our tools will free up valuable time, letting us spend more time actually thinking about the economy," said Takuji Okubo, founder and chief economist at JMA.
Building upon the comprehensive macroeconomic database at JMA
Since JMA was founded 4 years ago, the firm has strived to provide a comprehensive macroeconomic database on Japan freely accessible to anyone. The database currently includes over 500 indicators, some of them uniquely compiled by JMA. The new "My Charts" tool will simplify access to Japan's economic data. "My Charts" can be used as a personalized chart book, printable and exportable to PowerPoint slides with just one click.
A $US30/month premium plan enables users to save virtually unlimited pages of charts/tables and gives them access to premium research produced by JMA. A free trial plan is available that provides limited features included in the premium plan. JMA also provides corporate services that allow clients in-person meetings, seminars and research support with JMA economists.
Additional features in the pipeline
Upcoming features include yield curve charts, map charts and monthly publications of interactive chartbook on the Japanese economy. JMA is also working to bring a similar service to India.
