I've been using Quicken Deluxe (2000) for the longest time to track my investments. However, since discovering this board, I've been searching for the best way to track my personal CAGR.

For investment performance purposes, all Quicken seems to do is figure out your Internal Rate of Return (which in some cases, gives me a 1000% average annual total return...which I know is not correct and doesn't help me at all in the middle of the year). Bottom line, I'm not confident that Quicken calculates ALL securities transactions correctly.

What do some/most of you use to track your own personal CAGR?

Quicken (or other commercial software)?
Manual spreadsheet?
Paper and pencil?

FWIW, I downloaded a "Net Worth Tracker" from the web and have been updating it each month since the beginning of the year. Should I just plug in the starting/ending amounts (for a given timeframe) into a CAGR calculator?

Where should I go from here?..........
