TinyTrader is a free stock price tracker and portfolio manager for Windows which downloads stock prices and historical stock data directly from Yahoo Finance. You can use TinyTrader to easily keep track of prices of individual stocks right from your desktop, or you can set up your entire stock portfolio and then keep track of price movements of all of your stocks combined. It also comes with a built-in web browser, historical data browser and supports stock price export as well as import from dumps of other similar stock price trackers.
As you can see from the screenshot below, this free stock price tracker sports a very feature rich and modern interface that has the same type of ribbon toolbar design that was introduced in Office 2007. All the way at the top of the window there are tabs for switching between stock price tracker, historical data viewer, web browser, etc.
Ribbon toolbar underneath the tabs will change depending on what it is that you have selected. Another thing that’s going to change is all the various sections that take up the rest of the interface down below. Right now, we have the stock price tracker tab selected, so down below on the left you can see stock browser, which lets you select stocks and, on the right, you can view prices and price charts of stocks.
Key features of TinyTrader are:
- Free and simple to use: very easy to add stocks and keep track of prices
- Can be used to keep track of both individual stocks and portfolios
- Historical data viewer: displays historical data of the selected stocks
- Stock search: quickly find stocks by simple typing in company name
- Pulls data from Yahoo Finance: stock prices, quotes, high, low, volume
- Price charts: displays charts of prices so they’re easier to track
- Works with Windows: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and 8
The built-in browser allows you to open up web pages directly, if you need even more info about stocks or if you want to read up on the latest financial news. Of course, prices can be expressed in different currencies, and there’s even a built-in tool that reports currency exchange rates.
