Personal Stock Monitor Gold

Personal Stock Monitor (PSM) Gold supports three different stock market data services for delayed or real-time streaming data: Yahoo!, TD Ameritrade, and DTN IQFeed. For free, delayed U.S. equity and options data, Canadian equity data, and international stock exchange quotations, PSM Gold supports Yahoo! Finance. The program supposedly will automatically download up to 20 years of historical data for charting, when available. However, we were not able to get the program to successfully download more than 10 years’ worth of data for any given symbol.

Integrated Trading

For those with a TD Ameritrade account, PSM Gold allows you to place live trades and receive trade confirmations for stocks, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and options. You can also edit or cancel open orders from within the program.

Charting & Technical Analysis

PSM Gold offers three different chart styles: line, bar and candlestick. You can create historical charts with up to 20 years of data or intraday charts with up to 60 days of data. If you are using a real-time data feed, the charts also update in real time.

For additional analysis, there are over 30 technical indicators from which to choose. Using “script extensions,” you can customize the software to suit your needs and create your own indicators. This is more involved than what we have found with other software packages, but they also usually cost a lot more than PSM Gold. If you are familiar with scripting languages such as VBScript, you probably won’t have any trouble getting used to this feature. The Personal Stock Monitor website also has a number of articles explaining how to create your own extensions.

Portfolio Tracking

PSM Gold allows you to track multiple watchlists as well as actual trading portfolios, with a cash balance and the number of shares or contracts held. The program will calculate the value of your portfolio throughout the trading day and in real time if you are using a real time data vendor.

Personal Stock Monitor Gold has now been updated to version 9.3. The cost remains the same at $49.95 to purchase, and you can download a free 30-day trial.

You start with "...supports three different stock market data services for delayed or real-time streaming data: Yahoo!, TD Ameritrade, and DTN IQFeed. For free, delayed U.S. equity and options data, Canadian equity data, and international stock exchange quotations, PSM Gold supports Yahoo! Finance.

Schwab already has investment tools for use by active traders, but I have not yet had time to see if the functions described are provided by the Schwab tools. I will definitely check this out. Do you know if Personal Stock Monitor Gold is planning to Support Schwab trading?
