Open Source Tool To Track Your Stock Investments

For those of you who are either hardcore traders or if you just like to dabble in the stock market, keeping up with the current price of both your portfolio as well as your watch list is essential to decision making. If you are looking for a tool which may help, give the open source project JStock a look.

JStock is a free stock market software for 23 countries. It provides Real-Time stock info, Intraday stock price snapshot, Stock indicator editor, Stock indicator scanner, Portfolio management and Market chit chat features. Free SMS/email alert supported[.]

JStock boasts a pretty impressive feature list. I can see the alerts (email/text/tray) being especially useful. Additionally, it is built on Java, so it runs on any OS.


  1. I have been involved in stock trading and investing for a number of years now and I generally use the software provided by my broker, but I will certainly take a look at JStock.

  2. Hi, I am project admin of JStock project.

    Thanks for introducing JStock.

    We always try to improve the features of JStock, by introducing more useful features in every new release.

    For upcoming release information, interested user may visit to have an idea of what next coming JStock is going to be 😉

  3. I have been using Google Finance’s free portfolio. It is in real time as well as providing links to news sources that are also in real time. I find the whole layout to be very organized with plenty of links for research and plenty of links to news sources. Their presentation of a company’ financial situation is also very well done.
