PROS: It is a reasonably handy and inexpensive way to track a few stocks. Simple backup features. CONS: It is poorly programmed and buggy in places. More importantly, it contains a number of errors that show up when you are tracking more than a few stocks in multiple groups. As one example, if you sell a stock and realize a $100 gain, you may want to leave the stock in your group to track your overall gains and losses over a period of time. On occasion (you will never know when) TradeTrakker will include the day's gains or losses of stocks you have sold in the past in the daily tallies, making it impossible to track the day at a glance. Another example is percent gains and losses. Upon occasion (again, no pattern that I have had the time to track down), a stock will suddenly show a 250000% gain for the day. I pointed out a few of these problems to the developers a year or so back. Their response was that they knew what they were doing and didn't think there were any problems. They displayed this attitude in spite of the fact that previous versions fixed known calculation errors. Releases are infrequent and never seem to get to the foundation programming issues. Buy this software for light tracking and for fun but not if you are serious about tracking your investments.
