Excel Stock Quotes: Keeping Track
If you like having your stock quote information right at your fingertips, you might be interested in using Excel Stock Quotes, also known as ESQuotes. This nifty program, put together by Gilmore Software Development, leverages your existing Microsoft Office program so that you have a constant stock ticker and reminder on your computer screen primarily powered by Excel. Excel Stock Quotes is actually an Excel workbook with its own DLLs for direct retrieval of stock and mutual fund quotes from the Internet, and dynamic updating for price, change, volume, highs and lows, and many more things. Instead of downloading and importing files, they're already right there for you to use. And if you're a registered user, you get updates in real time, instead of waiting and maybe missing an opportunity. If you use Excel Stock Quotes at work, you can - um - circumvent the firewalls and other electronic countermeasures, and simply flip back and forth between your stock quotes spreadsheet and your regular work as necessary. Only if you have no browser access at all to the Internet will you be unable to use Excel Stock Quotes at work. And since it looks like an ordinary spreadsheet, your boss looking over your shoulder won't know what you're doing if he or she catches you off guard. If you are using Excel Stock Quotes at home, your bandwidth doesn't matter. Updates come in as raw data that is sorted out by your DLLs, so they come in almost instantly as small downloads. Whether your connection is fast or slow, you still have your real-time quotes. Excel Stock Quotes comes with a user-friendly, easy-to-use example workbook that will walk you through dynamic price updating, calculations of gain/loss and portfolio value, and all the other necessities for figuring out how your stocks are really doing. You have multiple spreadsheet options, so you can not just watch your current stocks, but also run fantasy stocks or projections of potential stock purchases. You can easily research mutual funds as well, and get news from message boards, Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, and other important informational sources. And you can add your own links to download your important news. In addition to the regular American stock exchanges, Excel Stock quotes support many international changes. This tool may change the way you manipulate your personal stocks.
