Simple Investment Tracker

2013 / data visualization

Free yourself from minute-by-minute wall street hypes, and focus on your long-term investment goals and diversification.

I wanted a simple way to track my investment. I don’t want to log in to my broker’s website every time I need to check the total balance. The search engine results distract my focus and show me too much information. I am not a day trader and never will be, but I want to make sure I’m heading in the right direction – that my investment is appreciating over the long-term, and also track the proper asset allocation once in a while.

This software is not meant for real-time tracking nor it provides any prediction. You may want to use it to update any changes (buy/sell activities) to your long-term investment. You may not want to open this program every day.

The software is developed with Processing, and it gets real-time and historical stock data from Yahoo. You can download the source code on github.
