The stock market is a tricky way to earn money. However, many invest hoping to generate more revenue in their lives. Amateur Invest offers a program aimed at helping newcomers to the stock market, but might prove to be too much for those it aims to assist.

The program has a complex interface that is made slightly easier thanks to the start-up wizard that appears when you start the program. Here, you can set your currency, stocks to purchase, and even watch a helpful tutorial. A tutorial is a great idea, since this program is intimidating with its clustered layout. Icons along the left side offer users the ability to run reports, look at graphs, import new companies, and even set an alarm. Along the top of the screen is a rolling stock ticker. The center of the screen keeps track of your portfolio and all the important information, such as purchase date, price, going rate, and more.

Amateur Invest contains a great deal of information, but little direction beyond the tutorial. Users unfamiliar with the jargon of trading should do some research before using this program. During the trial period, some features are disabled, but you can still get a good sense of how this program works. If you feel up to the task, this slightly over-complicated program might be just what you need.
