Rognvald, excellent set of links - congratulations! However, could I maybe draw on your experience to find the needle in the (information) haystack . I am trying to establish a documented track record of running a portfolio of European smaller companies using a long/short strategy and am therefore desperately in need of a simple, but effective portfolio management (i.e. trade entry, valuation/P&L, corporate actions) software package, preferrably free (as I am currently unemployed!), or at least quite cheap. Could you maybe kindly suggest anything that might fit the description (and the pocket?) I launched the portfolio on 19th April this year, and have so far been keeping records manually in Excel, but due to the number of portfolio changes, this has become unmanageable and unweildly. I will have to reinput the portfolio (to get a documented track record), so some kind of easy price upload function would be fantastic. I have a friend who has access to Bloomberg, so in the worst case scenario, I can download historic data into an Excel table and save as a csv file or some other compatible format for upload into the portfolio management package. It is critical for me however that the package can handle shorts and obviously be multi-currency since I cover the whole of Continental Europe. Your help is VERY MUCH appreciated!

FIREWALLS

Totally agree that it is important to have a firewall, but would say that although zone alarm is a good freebie, a better firewall is provided by Smoothwall. This uses a computer dedicated to running a firewall and in the time I have been using it, I have found it to be superb. It does assume that you have an old PC lying around, but how many people have upgraded and still have their old machine? The software is Linux based and is downloaded as an iso image file which can be burnt to a CD. The best news is that for private users, it is FREE!

Any way, for those that are interested and require more information, go to http://smoothwall.org/ and have a browse.

He was a good friend of Socrates and decided to leave when there was all that controversy over who Soc was etc and has not returned since.

I suppose when you move around with your laptop you also carry that older cranky computer to serve as your firewall.:)

wave59?

Hi,

Long and impressive list. However, just wondering whether you've included the wave59 analysis programme (www.wave59.com) plus other neural net programmes. There are also several Elliott Wave analysis tools besides GET (eg, ElWave and the Aus/Elliottician software).
Apologies if these are included somewhere: this was just a quick review ...

Rs,
AColes

Ok, 1 question which is probably stupid but here goes:

If I use esignal (for example) as my charting package and I want to see realtime data, do I have to pay for a separate data feed or will esignal provide this. Additionally then lets say I use IB will I pay them for their realtime data? or can I link them together?

Esignal you sign up for data as well. They list a lot of markets for stocks, forex, indices, commodities etc and you basically go into your account maintenance bit and find there's 7 or so pages of things you can click on to add. So you might start out with LSE RT and nothing else, then decide you want to trade the Nasdaq so you tick the Nasdaq box and a few minutes later (takes a minute or two to process changes) you find you now have RT Nasdaq and your monthly bill has increased by $x.

Different things cost different amounts, but it's a package you tailor to your own needs from a wide range of options. I've not used IB stuff, or not in a long time at least, but whilst you can feed esignal data into some add on programs I don't think IB is one. Equally you wouldn't find esignal up to charting your IB I wouldn't think - two different systems basically, and whilst I don't KNOW this I suspect you'd find you couldn't just pay for one feed and shove it into both packages.
