Advanced Stock Tracking System
Advanced Stock Tracking System (AST) is a Web-based application for keeping track of stocks. It features a portfolio with dividend tracking, a worksheet to keep track of prospects, a stock comparison utility, and a search engine for the stock market based heavily on technical analysis.

'beancounter' enables stockmarket data analysis and performance evaluation. Its first mode is data gathering - both current data (e.g. closing prices, high, low, volume etc.) and historical price data can be retrieved efficiently using multiple securities per requests, and stored in an SQL database via the command line. Its second mode is data analysis, based on the previously stored data. This includes performance reports and a Value-at-Risk analysis. It supports stock markets in North America, Europe, and Asia, foreign exchange rates, US mutual funds, and US options.

Chart is stock market charting program. It downloads and displays market daily data and current price quotes in various styles and with many standard technical analysis indicators and averages. Data is obtained from several sources, including Barchart and Yahoo Finance (which covers most major world exchanges). Alert levels, notes, and free-form trend lines can be added to charts. Chart is at "personal project" level, which means the features are those things which interest the author, but the aims are serious. Chart is written in GNU Guile and perl, and customizations and extensions can be added using Scheme code. The main interface is the Guile Gtk GUI. An Emacs interface is included too, for viewing price quotes within Emacs, including importing into the Simple Emacs Spreadsheet (and other uses).

GeniusTrader aims to be a full featured toolbox to create trading systems. Powerful systematic trading requires several things:

  • many indicators and corresponding signals
  • money management rules
    • deciding what is a reasonable amount of money to put on a single trade (to limit the risk associated to that trade)
    • combining different values within the portfolio (to limit the global risk)
  • flexibility to be able to test all
  • combinations with the above items
  • backtesting system with analysis of results

GeniusTrader already has support of most of this. GeniusTrader consists of a bunch of Perl modules associated to a few perl scripts.
