looking for financial tracking software

blue_fastbackApril 3, 2011

Can anyone recommend good financial tracking software that will update the value of my investments automaticly. I was using Money but it is not supported any more by Microsoft. I thought about Mint but I dont trust having a third party knowing all my investments.

I set up a free account with Yahoo (under a fake name) and use their software to track my investments.

Check out MarketWatch.com. I've used it to track portfolio value and research potential investments.

I'm in the same boat blue ... I only use Money for my investments and to compute anything needed for tax purposes.

I'm thinking I'm going to have to spend the money and go with Quicken. Though I don't want to ... I looked at Mint, and it didn't give me what I wanted.

I have used Quicken for a number of years now. I update it every several years (not annually). It works well for downloading and tracking investments. I don't like the idea of my finances being out there on the internet "cloud" so am not interested in anything online.

I fell that Quicken is well worth what I spent for it.

I second Quicken. I have been using it since 2004.

Does quicken automatically update the value of my invests depending on what the market is doing? This is what I am trying to find. I know I can go to say Vanguards website where I have mutual funds and see what they are doing but because I have investments with different companies, I dont want to go to seveal websites and see how my investments are performing. I want one program that will do the work for me.

Yes, it should update if set to do so. If you are having problems look at quicken help, or contact them. They were very helpful to me when I had questions.
