During such downturns in the market, many investors prefer to bury their heads in the sand to avoid the bad news. Up or down, rain or shine, it is a good idea to have some idea how your portfolio is performing. For this type of casual observation, an on-line portfolio tracker—such as those covered in Cara Scatizzi’s in-depth comparison article in this issue—will do quite nicely. Such services are not intended to replace more full-featured portfolio management software, which usually handle investments that are more complex and aid in income tax filings. Instead, on-line portfolio trackers allow you to monitor things on a day-to-day basis. Many even allow you to receive E-mail alerts regarding important news events that may be driving a stock’s price. For more information on these services, click here.
