Ashkon Stock Watch is a convenient charting program that provides users with access to EOD (end of day) quotes from a database of over 20,000 securities listed on the NYSE, NASDAQ and Amex. The quotes can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet or charted within the program, where users can apply a variety of built-in indicators and overlays, such as RSI and Bollinger bands. Users can create security watchlists, view multiple charts simultaneously and record buy and sell transactions with one click.
Although most of the program’s features can be found for free elsewhere, its strengths are its speed and ease of use. Stock Watch can download and display years of EOD data and add indicators, overlays and transactions in seconds, while allowing users to switch between securities or even simultaneously analyze multiple securities quickly and easily. For example, a discount broker may be able to tell you more about an oil company than Stock Watch, but the program will allow you to quickly and easily compare customizable graphs of multiple oil companies. Since there are multiple graphs rather than multiple companies on one graph, you can visualize and compare a variety of information, such as volume and volatility, as well as performance.
