"It's dead and buried"

July 01, 2009  |  By pvonk46

 |  Version: Not Found


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I gave a 5-star review four years ago, but now I must downgrade this to 1-star.

For two years, I wasn't using the app, and after an upgrade or two in OS/X along with two new laptops, I tried the app today and found it wouldn't even load anymore. Tried to download the app again, but the source web site is non-existent. After searching the web for other links to downloads I gave up - they all failed. I can only assume the product has gone away.

"A loser"

The interface does not show much thought. It is counter-intuitive and rough around the edges. The ticker is an afterthought. It is not at all variable in any aspect. What you sees is what you gets.
Perhaps the most perplexing thing about the whole experience is that the address on the support page WILL NOT answer emails. If you get this software you will be on your own to figure out any problems. I have sent them three emails over the course of several months and have yet to hear from them.

"Update of my previous review"

March 07, 2005  |  By pvonk46

 |  Version: MarketAnalyst X 4.3.2


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've been using the product each day for a few days - all day long. The crash problem I originally had (and reported on earlier) has not resurfaced, and I have been able to set up multiple portfolios. Here's my current review:
USE: I keep an eye on my portfolios during the day. For each security, I want to see changes in day's profit and day's change as well as total profit/loss. Having percents is also nice. Being able to move columns around, I'm able to put purchase price next to current price. I'm also able to rearrange important "pairs" of columns so they are next to each other. At times I see a sudden jump (or drop) in daily price (price change for the day), so I then pop up the intraday chart to see if there's a trend or just a pop/drop due to stops. When total profit seems to reach a target level, I can review the daily chart to see how current price compares with the Bollinger bands. (When I need to really focus on a good chart - I turn to my Stockcharts account.) I don't day trade, I'm usually in a position for a matter of days or weeks, so immediate prices and charts are not important to me, even though I have some sources for these. I generally have the program up and running during the day, but hide the portfolio windows except for when I want to check the market. There are alerts available, but I haven't used them yet.
PERFORMANCE: I've spent several days searching for other protfolio managers and can't find anything else that has what I want; MarketAnalyst provides just the data I need in the way of a "live window" to the markets. I don't do options, so a lot of the program's power is unused. Those interested in options should download and test its capabilities (it has options features). Like most trading software, there's a certain feel and feedback that is very individual - it works for me so far, I suggest you try the trial version to see how it fits you. The data updates quickly, and visuals are present to help focus on unusual conditions, like multi colors and boxes to indicate these conditions.
WHAT I CAN'T COMMENT ON: Options! I seem to do very well using my "system" applied to stocks only, so I have no need for the options features - check them out yourself. There's an HTML based help system that seems to cover all the features, but some - not in depth. I haven't needed to reference it except for two occassions - I found what I needed.
NEGATIVES: The price! But considering I get live quotes and charts (although rather primitive ones; good for a quick viewing, but you'll want to check other charting sources if you need a serious view), just the layout of the portfolio I want, and the fact that I have gotten an immediate heads up of important developments (as long as the window is open) makes this a buy. Again, it's the feel and fit (just right for me) that makes the price something I'm willing to forgive (just barely). You'll just have to decide for yourself. After all, $200 is not a big price for an important tool when it comes to investing - as long as it works for you.
BOTTOM LINE: If your bankroll is limited, then the price may be an issue for you. Otherwise, if you've been looking for a portfolio manager that you can use to watch your investments in real time, give this a try. It's not a complex manager that keeps track of all your trades for tax purposes, and following which open lots remain, etc. But what it is might be very useful to you.

"Option features are great!"

April 06, 2004  |  By Vertus

 |  Version: MarketAnalyst X 3.5


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I sent the developer an email requesting an option scanning tool (I sell puts every month) and 2 bugs on the main portfolio window, and what a surprise I got in 3.5!
They added 2 new features for Option traders (and teh one I wanted!) and fix my 2 bugs!
Way to go!
