I know there are some excelent and moderately priced applications out there but I have decided to developing my own stock management application which I will make available to members of this site.
Why am I doing this? There are three possible reasons
· I am silly and a glutton for punishment
· I like writing code
· I haven't found anything that does exactly what I want or that I can modify to do exactly what I want.
If anyone is interested to contribute to this exercise with ideas and testing it may enable you to get something that meets all of your needs as well.
The first alpha version will do the following.
· Operating Systems
Possibly Linux and Mac
Add initial / extra capital
Add / modify Dr and Cr fees and expenses
· Add / modify trades
Add long and short trades
Calculate entry qty's based on various position sizing options
Modify running trades.
· Monitor trades
Highlight winning and losing trades
· Monitor stocks entered into Watch lists in AmiBroker
Display alerts in the system tray in a similar manner to the way the Stockwatch application did
· Price adjustments
Adjust prices by importing daily data from a text file
Adjust prices by importing data from Yahoo finance
Manually adjust prices
· Summary screen
A summary screen for a quick display of the portfolio progress
· Dispose trades
· Graphs to give a visual display of progress
Let me know what you think.
