With the huge selection of financial software available, there should be enough to suit every need. Some financial software programs are quite basic while others are capable of performing a variety of complex functions including:
  • The retrieval, management and analysis of daily market data
  • Analysis and sorting of company fundamental data
  • Charting using various formats and technical indicators
  • Portfolio management
  • Progressive financial statements

Price is not necessarily a good indicator of the quality of financial software programs. Be wary of programs offering guaranteed success and costing several thousand dollars where the non-returnable deposit alone may be far greater than the true value of the software. Most good comprehensive programs cost less than $1500 while a few of the more basic ones are available free. Many software vendors provide demonstration discs or internet downloads of their programs for a limited free trial period.

Some of the important points to consider when choosing financial software should include:

  • Is it suitable for my personal needs and the Australian markets and taxation system?
  • Does the software suite include all the components and historical data I will need?
  • Will the program accept data other than in an expensive proprietary format?
  • Are there regular program upgrades and at what cost?
  • How does the program handle company re-constructions, mergers, name & code changes etc.?
  • Is phone or email help freely available?
