With TickVue you can track the stock market in nearly real-time. It queries Yahoo Finance periodically, updates the stock values you are interested in, and calculates your portfolio value and daily gain.
* Real-time stock and portfolio tracker. Updates tickers and overall stock portfolio values every 30 seconds.
* Discreetly minimizes to the system tray. You do not even need to restore the window application in order to know how your portfolio and chosen symbols are performing.
* Multi-platform. Runs in Windows, Mac, Linux and (theoretically) any other Qt-compatible system.
