[SOLVED] software for stock management ?

Postby vmunich » Mar 20th, '20, 15:52

Hi everyone,

I could not find any simple&good software for managing a stock portfolio...
GnuCash is way too much, I just want to manage a simple portfolio

Can you recommend one that can be installed under Mageia ?

Thank you +

I haven't used it but KmyMoney may be suitable?

Other than that I don't know, but there's probably a web app you could install independently under a standard 'urpmi task-lamp' web server.

I use gnucash somewhat, but my stocks I track in a spreadsheet I started some 10+ years ago now.

I vote for the spreadsheet. I have been using a plain .ods spreadsheet for about 15 years now. I manage my whole portfolio plus expenses etc. in a single spreadsheet.

If only the best bird sang, the forest would be a very quiet place.

Thank you guys for your replies.

No Kmymoney is not really appropriate for simple stock management...

Thanks for you help

Also recommend the humble, yet powerful, spreadsheet.
Been using it 10+ years.

If you have no idea where to begin, let's assume your columns are:
you pretty much cover everything plus have info for taxes later too.
G = C x F
H = G + E
I = C x F
J = I - E

Using fictitious numbers, assume you bought 10 shares of ABC, at $5.00, and were charged $20, copy&paste G&H
jan1 2020,,10,ABC,20,5 then G=50,H=70
selling, 10 shares of ABC, at $5.50, copy&paste I&J
jan2 2020,,10,ABC,20,5.5 then I=55,J=35

For taxes, you write $35 for total proceeds and $70 total cost
...for a grand profit of -$25

With time, your spreadsheet gets fancier ;) with formatting and other stuff - Hopefully the numbers look better than red too :)
