What are the Best Financial Programs to Use?

There are many apps and online programs that investors can use, often for free, to help keep an eye on their holdings and to track their investment portfolio.

In addition to the software accessible through your custodian, you might want to look at the programs available through Morningstar, Microsoft Money, and others.

Apps on your phone (CNBC, TheStreet, Barron’s, MarketWatch, etc.) can keep you updated on market news related to your stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs. You can also subscribe to market commentaries delivered via email.

While all of these services can keep you up-to-date with news and information about your portfolio, it will not help you much with overall strategy.

Sometimes the squawk can scare investors off or make them overly optimistic. Having a strategy or methodology to fall back on can remove the emotion from investment decisions and give the investor a wider perspective.

Here at Tickeron we strive to help with both sides of this coin — the information and the strategy — , but we won’t get our feelings hurt if you make use of some other sources.
