Place a stock ticker on your desktop.


Note: PowerTicker X is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.

PowerTicker X allows you to easily monitor the stock markets around the world. Whether it's the NASDAQ or the Bourse, PowerTicker can track an unlimited number of stocks that you need watching. You can view the data on a scrolling ticker, individual stock reports, summarized reports, or personal portfolios. The built-in portfolio manager uses the latest available stock quotes to calculate the current value of your investments; even your international holdings are automatically converted at the current exchange rate and tallied in your currency of choice. PowerTicker will also monitor mutual funds, international indexes, over 60 major currencies, and major metal commodities.

Some of the features of PowerTicker:

  • customized stock reports;
  • portfolios with support for multiple-currencies;
  • multiple alerts on price changes;
  • QuickQuote to lookup prices of any stock on any exchange;
  • Currency Converter for quick rates;
  • support for international exchanges;
  • support for international currencies;

focussed on US markets and open-source means. Effectively it is just a shell around sites like Yahoo. No real updates to improve functionality.

In dire need of addressing the fact that the currencies no longer work!

I have been using PT from a long time ago and now using version 2.6.5 which is just great. All the problems mentioned have dissapeared and now have a very stable and useful product. I keep both real as well as potential portafolios and use several tickers to develop different perceptions. Great product.

This is an email to PT from this morning. Their product crashes when I try to modify the content of the ticker by clicking the "content" button of the ticker modify window. This is a serious bug. They choose not to fix it or respond to my emails. I have sent both a crash report and a bug report and have not had a reply about either. Did you get them? Is there any response to them? Do you care?

Why not use an RSS ticker (like Tickershock or NewsTicker, both here on MU) and the following RSS feed URL: http://www.xanadb.com/ticker/YHOO+GOOG (replace YHOO and GOOG with your own stocks separated by a + sign). Bingo: stocks in a scrolling ticker on your desktop. That's a much cheaper solution, IMHO.

I have used PowerTicker since it first became available, and think that it is one of the handiest, most useful little programs that I use nearly every day. It has been stable and fast on my Mac G4 with OS X 10.2.6
