In these days of global economic meltdown, keeping tabs on the stock market is more important than ever before.
Stock Spy does exactly that by monitoring the latest business news with the latest stock market fluctuations which, in theory, should give you an accurate readout of the latest stock trends. In reality of course, not all news affects the stock markets and not all news is even necessarily true so the results can be quite erratic.
Stock Spy monitors several stock market RSS feeds and combines them with the latest stock values. It can suggest possible share purchase targets or when to sell, according to the latest market movements. The application can deliver results to your computer via a ticker, which organizes information through symbols and signs according to whether it's stocks or shares that it's reporting on.
Stock Spy isn't going to save you from the credit crunch and some of it's features seem a little exaggerated by the developers but in these times you need all the help you can get on the stockmarket.
- Stock Spy NewsAlerts have been improved to display quote data and symbol information for previously unsupported symbols including market indexes.
