If you find yourself constantly checking the Web for the latest and greatest stock information or for updates on your own stocks, you'll certainly appreciate what StockPoint has to offer. We're not exactly experts when it comes to the stock market, but we still found the program intuitive and easy to use.
StockPoint offers a tabbed user interface that keeps your stock information organized and easy to find. The various tabs are organized into three categories: Research, Earnings Releases, and Browser. The Research tab let us quickly find stocks with the help of its Screener Options drill-down feature. We were able to select which signal we were looking for (longs or shorts) which investment (long-term, short-term, day-trade), and which market we'd like to screen among others. Once we made our selections, the program quickly went to work finding the stocks that matched our criteria. Under the Results tab, we were able to select each individual stock to learn important details, such as a breakdown of the stock's financial analysis, volume analysis, and profile. The Earnings Releases tab gave us an extensive list of the stocks' produced profits over a period of time. Should you need it, an ample Help file is available to answer any questions.
StockPoint comes with a 14-day trial period, and it requires that you enter some personal information to receive the trial activation code. It installs a desktop icon without asking, but it uninstalls cleanly. We recommend it for anyone who wants to keep up with the stock market.
