Internet Quotes Assistant (IQA) is a basic, yet useful program that helps users keep track of their investment portfolios. The program allows users to create multiple portfolios to track the prices of stocks, mutual funds, currency exchange rates (Forex), options and futures. Users can download detailed historical quotes (i.e., open, close, high, low and volume) through the program, record their transactions, graph performance and export everything to Excel. IQA also contains an automatic currency conversion feature that converts an investment into any currency using the latest exchange rate. By default, IQA uses free servers, such as Yahoo! Finance, which has a 15-minute delay. However, tech-savvy users with access to a real-time feed can configure the program to automatically download real-time quotes.

Although there are programs that provide more information, such as ratios and multiples, IQA is like a breath of fresh air that allows users to focus on their investments with minimal clutter. For those who would like more analytical functions, IQA’s export feature makes it easy for Excel users to gather essential portfolio and investment data, such as detailed historical quotes, and perform their own analysis. Moreover, since IQA can also export the user’s investment history and transactions, the program makes it easy for investors to analyze their performance in Excel.
