View Full Version : [ubuntu] Stockmarket software

September 15th, 2008, 05:13 PM
Hello Ubuntu community,
I am currently a junior in college and would like to learn about the stock market to acquire some skills. What I am looking for is something similar to qtstalker, expect one that is a little more user friendly and one that isn't broken for me. Problems I've had with qt is that the stocks do not update, i.e. lehambros is at 50 something a share when for the past week its been below 20 and this morning was at .5 or something like that.
I'm also looking for the usual graphing ability to chart the stock over time, also to build custom portfolios to test certain strategies. In hindsight I am at most willing to pay a one time fee of at least 20 dollars for something that works in native Linux, but free is always better.
Lastly, Thanks for the help and I'm sorry if i put this in the wrong forum.

you can try this one:

lookout for runaway processes with it; had that happen on an install.

Why use a centalized installed app when you can use a google app

To the google guy, I like to used central installed apps the best, never looked at what google offered so will check it out. Still if anyone has more I'm in the process of checking on what people have said so far.

Looked at getdab.net and found an accounting software which is very cool, but not exactly what I am looking for yet.
