Tracking international stock movements and trends can help brokers and home-based determine how to trade and buy. The process just got easier thanks to this free app that downloads information about the Bombay and other stock exchanges based in India.
Getbhavcopy launches a small, tabbed interface that initially opens to the Options tab. From this pane, the user can configure the app to download data from specified information sources - the Indian National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE)--and save it to a log in a user-determined location. This app performed very well during our tests. We liked the ease in configuring the data download, and were pleased that we could change those options at any time simply by opening the Options tab. Selecting a date range for the download also was a simple process, thanks to the built-in calendar feature on the Download tab. The downloads themselves were quickly executed: no matter how many optional sources we selected for download, the process ran and completed within less than a minute once we clicked the Download button. We were glad to see that the app included a log of its downloading progress for each performance. The output logs are text files, which may be easily formatted for Excel or Word tables.
The ease of use, and the simplicity of design, will make this app appealing to nearly any users. Experienced users with serious professional interests in the Indian markets will likely prefer a more robust app with more bells and whistles, but Getbhavcopy offers a nice way to dip your toes into this pool.
