Buying and selling stocks appeals to many people, but the process of trading stocks online can be overwhelming. Luckily, Stock + for Mac includes an easy-to-use interface that makes continual monitoring and charting easy.
Stock + for Mac allows you to track stock market fluctuations on selected stocks continually over time. You can define which stocks to follow and configure the interface to display stock or company names. This version includes a handy scrolling ticker tape feature that can be placed in either the menu bar or anywhere on the desktop. The scrolling ticker tape is easy to move, highly modifiable, and transparent when on the desktop. This program also includes a handy tutorial that quickly walks you through all of the available features and highlights the difference between the free version and the Pro version; it also gives a solid view of how the program works. The free version is only able to track and graph stock prices up to five years in the past using preset ranges. The graphing feature allows you to compare stock performance between companies as well as view single companies' past performance. The Stock + Pro for Mac version costs $3.99 and includes extra chart features, Company News, Themes, and Stock Alerts.
Stock + for Mac can track stocks on a daily basis and analyze stocks over time in a graph format. This version would seem to work best for personal use with a low level of investments.
