Personal Money Portfolio - snapshot 0.9a


Personal Money Portfolio - snapshot 0.9a

For the last few weeks, I've been working on the charting and fixing major bugs. After some late night works, we have improved a more readable chart and as well as a more informational portfolio.

It reminds me of the motivation of this project right from the start, it is to automate as much of the manual work as possible ... to make one investor's life less hassle! :P After all, repetitive monitoring work is not our core-business, so let the system handles it!!

Several improvement had been made over the historical chart in this new version:
  1. Added a Simple Moving Average indicator which covered for 30, 50, and 100 days.
  2. Separated the volume and candlestick into different dimension.


GBPUSD (one of my favorite)

There is also an easy to read portfolio allocation chart added in, to provide an overview on where your "bullets" are.

That's all for now, isn't much time left for blogging these days!

Snapshot 0.7


Snapshot 0.7

The major changes in version 0.7 is to resolve a few critical bugs in "open/close position" module, AJAX-implemented "business news" module and the new "currency chart".

This candlestick chart will draw the historical data over years, the draw back is slow in response. An average historical external feed will take out 1KB to 10KB+ bandwidth, although the JFreeChart perform drawing in a fair time, it still consider to be slow. 10KB x 1000 simultaneous requests will easily consumed around 10MB bandwidth of the server at one time (not including delay for each data fetch), a very powerful server is require to handle that kind of traffics.

Business news module had been improved it's performance greatly with an AJAX implementation.

A magnificent product!


I always have been asking the same question like any newbie do:

- "Where should I buy currency? "
- "What will it cost me? "
- "What information do I need to provide in order to make an exchange?"
- "How do I purchase currency?"
- "Can I hold out for a particular rate?"
- "What if the rate is good now, but I don’t need to make payment for 3 months?"
- "Will foreign exchange dealers offer advice about market conditions and rates?"
- "How do I pay for my currency?"
- "How can I find out current exchange rates? "
- "How long will my funds take to transfer to a foreign bank account?"

To answer my own question, I surf myself over places around the web. Then I came to this site: . I saw a little icon over the bottom left, it says Free Currency Account! "Well why not, lets try it out ... I got nothing to lose.", I told myself.

I got virtual money 100K in my account, so I can test out my strategies without paying any tuition fees.

When comes to the fluctuating market, timely information is certainly an
criterial between life and dead. This tool allows you watching the market, buying and selling almost in real-time. Also it will automatically close position on margin call, saving your losses to minimum. Not only that, with downloadable plugins you'll be able to draw historical charts and get latest currency news as well.

After trying out, you know what? It has best tools which I ever used, and it has answered to most of my questions. Imagine that you can now watch closely to your investment no matter wherever you are. Never to mention, you can generate your report anytime and measure your performance from your ROI!

Take a close look ...
