I just found the NetProphet Java application this afternoon. (www.neural.com) Although I'm way too much of a newbie at investing to say anything about the technical analysis aspects of it, it does look like a very nice, simple tool for portfolio tracking, news and charting. It has an export feature that supports Quicken and Excel and also comes set up to let you play in the Closing Bell simulation game on www.sandbox.com, a great way to do online paper trading. From what I can tell from the web page NetProphet is free for individual users and available (along with some much more sophisticated tools) for corporate licensing. What more could you ask for? Foolish fun for free!
