QuoteTracker is a terrific program with lots of bells and whistles, yet it is very simple to use. I have tried many other programs and always come back to QT for charting. Unfortunately QT was sold to TD Ameritrade a few years ago and the original designer (Jerry Medved) is no longer officially affiliated with it. Plus, TDA has said for the last 2 years they are going to stop supporting QT, although they keep pushing off the date. Nevertheless there are a great number of users out there who love the program and want to see it supported, Medved being one of them. There are a couple of threads on Elite Trader dedicated to QT which you will want to know about if you love QT. Start with this one: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=213476&perpage=6&pagenumber=126

I thought $14 a month is pretty expensive. Nevertheless I attempted to download the free trial which appeared to be 3 MB not 500 as advertized. Upon initializing it said that the file was corrupted and I needed to download a new version. I don't need to pay that much for something that doesn't work.

The 500 MB is RAM (Random Access Memory), which is what the computer uses when running the program, not the memory required to store the program. The more intensively you use a program, the more RAM it will use, which is why one of the best ways to speed up a computer is to add RAM. That said, $14 a month is quite reasonable given that QuoteTracker is a solid tick-by-tick day trading program that can display hundreds of intraday charts simultaneously (limited, of course, by the computers capability). The program can do much more than that, I recommend checking out some YouTube videos to see what it can do. To reiterate QuoteTracker is a day trading program; therefore, $14 per month is essentially negligible as it would be a small fraction of one trade, especially when some day traders make hundreds of trades each day. To put it into perspective, many professional traders use Bloomberg Terminals which cost about $1500 a month (I'm serious). As for the download being a corrupted file, it worked for me. The only issue was that, when it ran for the first time, there was an error. However, I believe that is because you have to run QuoteTracker as administrator.

Earle, have you tried the Portfolio Mobile feature download from earlier this month?
