As part of the now generation of equity investors we're faced with an incredible assortment of possibile companies in which to invest our hard-earned cash. On the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange alone there are more than 1,300 listed options. Round out another 1,000 odd plays on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) and the numbers can start to make your head spin. And that's limiting our outlook to just some of the the more mainstream investment possibilites. And that's just in the UK. But we're no longer confined to trading in the shares of companies that trade on our...

Introducing LSE Soirée

Following on from the unmitigated success of AIM Soirée - where we rank the chat, so you know where AIMs at - the next logical step was to apply the same shoddy coding (and funky design) to AIM's big sister; the London Stock Exchange's, Main Market. Well, a fair chunk of it anyway. Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, allow me introduce, LSE Soirée. For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, I'll be brief...

AIM Shares Compared

We're easily distracted here at Investor Trader. It doesn't take much for us to start day-dreaming and then set off running with a new idea rather than stick with the tried and tested success routine of blogging regularly. In the past 12 months those day-dreaming sessions have seen us sidetrack our Investor Trader efforts and develop AIM Soiree and DOW follows FTSE. And it was while recently tabbing between different windows comparing charts for half a dozen different AIM shares that I came up with the idea for Shares Compared. Now AIM Shares Compared is definitely in a beta stage at the moment -...

Which Shares Should I Invest In?

Based on a fair bit of visitor feedback, I began to pen a piece on how I go about creating a pool of potential shares to invest in. Nothing to do with the actual final homework and selection process, just the first stage where I add to a list of potentials. Initially, it was going to lead to a couple of handy methods I use to steer me to what's currently on the investment boil. A sort of road-map of where those in the know are flocking on AIM and why. But it ended up being a bit of a behemoth...

Free Trading Videos

For those of you out there with a basic understanding of Japanese Candlestick charting who'd like to take the next leap in your development, may I suggest you check out FreeTradingVideos.com. FreeTradingVideos.com was launched a couple of years back by a bunch of renowned traders who really know their stuff. Having been in this industry for several years, we feel that there is an alarming lack of trader education that teaches stock and option trading basics in a clear-cut way. For beginners, it can be difficult to put the “pieces” of trading together into a sound, workable plan. Well, it’s time to...

Personal Share Portfolio Tracker

Share Portfolio Tracker, Equity Portfolio Widget, Stock Market Price Gadget, Share Market Portfolio Plugin? After days of painstaking struggle I still haven't come up with a cool name for the code I've written. I know what it does though! It allows our readers to track their own portfolios on their own websites and it looks a little like what we've got going on over there to the right. Basically, you fill in a form online with a few details about which shares you have in your portfolio (or shares that you'd like to track), hit a button and viola, your personalised code...

Euro Stock Widget – Keeping Track on the Mac

First off, let me apologise to all the PC users out there, this post is all about a little piece of software for the Mac known as the Euro Stock Widget. It's a simple little dashboard widget that allows you to keep track of your portfolio. It uses the freely available Yahoo financial data (as we do for our data at Investor Trader) so keep in mind,  prices are delayed by at least 15 minutes. The beauty of this little application is that I brings together in one place any data that can be garnered from Yahoo. I use my Euro Stock...
