The ARK is now fully functional except for user registration and log-in. In pictures:

Nothing new.

ARK Positions: https://captainccs.com/ark-pics/ark-positions.jpg
ARK Positions also lets users create their Black Lists to eliminate the stocks they are not interested in.

White List: https://captainccs.com/ark-pics/white-list.jpg
The White List is used to include stocks that are not in ARK Invest's ETF.

My List: https://captainccs.com/ark-pics/my-list.jpg
Similar in function to ARK Positions but customized with the user's White and Black lists.

This is the missing piece.

For The Captain's use, a rather ugly page to upload ARK ETF data and Yahoo prices. While developing the code ARK Invest added some security features to their website to prevent robots from downloading the files. I'll have to do it manually, not a hardship with this page.

It should be fairly easy to add other sources but it does take some code since their files are not identical to ARK's. The advantage of automation is that one can digest a lot more data than manually or even with spreadsheets which tend to be error prone if one is not extra careful.

It shouldn't take long now.
