smtm (Show Me The Money) is a ticker, profit/loss calculator, and chart tool. It displays up to ten fields per share, among them company name, price, absolute and relative price changes, and net wealth change (if the number of shares held is supplied). It also supports other assets such as options, mutual funds, and currencies. Foreign stocks are treated via cross-currency pairs that translate into domestic units. Charts launch with one click; 'smtm' can display all the charts available at Yahoo!, including the advanced moving average and technical analysis features. Stocks can be added and deleted, and the selection can be stored. 'smtm' has been used with US, Canadian, European, Asian, Australian/New Zealand, and South American stocks. The program supports firewalls and has user/password support.
