Amateur Invest is a personal financial management software available in the Download Library at AAII.com. Users are able to keep track of each of their bank accounts separately and update deposits and withdrawals to track their cash flow. The stock and portfolio section allows users to track investments, and investment values are updated via the Internet. Furthermore, there is a reports and graphs section that breaks down your personal finances so that you can see trends in your income and spending. The last section, alarms and watches, enables users to compare stock prices and portfolio performance. In addition, triggers can be set for stocks at various price levels.
In November of 2010, Amateur Invest was updated to the current version. Two levels of service are still offered. The free version has limited technical analysis and investment wizard capabilities. It restricts the number of portfolios, and users cannot download currency exchange rates. The registered version, which offers more capabilities, is $49.99.
