"Free stock market software"
JStock is a Java-based free stock market investing software that can run under Windows.
The software can pull in stock market data in 26 countries around the world. The software has a stock watchlist to add companies that the investor is interested in monitoring over the short-, medium- or long-term. Prices can be monitored over time until a low enough price is reached and then the investor can decide whether to go ahead with a stock purchase.
An Intraday pricing snapshot for stocks can be displayed to provide a sense of price movement during the day and whether trading momentum is beginning to affect the stock in a material fashion.
There is a stock indicator scanner which can watch for different statistical aspects of interest about stock. This can help with investors who either look at statistical measurements about a company or prefer to trade more on stock market movements, patterns of movements or momentum.
There is also an email or SMS alert system to advise the user when a stock in their portfolio needs tending to or a stock on the watchlist has achieved an affordable price.
The software required 35.1 MB of available space to complete the setup package. The package picked up that the required Java 1.7 64-bit that was not yet installed and it needed to be downloaded via the installer to complete the installation properly.
There was no adware, toolbars, malware or spyware included with the setup program.
