We are proud to announce the release of StockMarketEye 5.4.2 for Windows, MacOS and Linux.
We now have a version of StockMarketEye that will run natively on the new M1/Apple Silicon computers! Apple is transitioning their Mac lineup of desktop and laptop computers to using their own processors, aka “Apple Silicon” processors. The first Macs with the new processors are were released at the end of 2020 with the first Apple Silicon processor called the “M1”.
If you’re lucky enough to have one of the new (super fast) Macs, you’ll want to get the latest version of StockMarketEye which is optimized for “Apple Silicon” processors. Note that, in this case, you should download and install the “Apple Silicon” macOs version of StockMarketEye from our download page – updating to the latest version from within the StockMarketEye app will not update to the optimized version.
Based on a few tests we’ve run on a new MacBook Air, the optimized version of StockMarketEye starts up about 3x faster than the non-optimized version. StockMarketEye on the new MacBook Air is also about 20% faster at startup than on a high-end (i9) MacBook Pro from 2018. (As a side note, the new MacBook Air that is 20% faster cost about $1600 vs the high-end MacBook Pro which cost almost $4000!)
StockMarketEye 5.4.2 also includes a number of smaller enhancements to the reports.
There’s a new option in the Summary report that will add the “FX” column to the beginning and ending portfolios. If your portfolios have investments in multiple currencies, this option is useful to see the exchange rate from the starting and ending dates.
We’ve added new date ranges in the reports. The “Last 7 Days” range has been added to the Transactions, Gain/Loss and Summary reports. We’ve also added the “Today” range in the Transactions report. If none of the pre-existing ranges meet your needs, you can always set your own custom ranges using the calendars.
The Gain/Loss report has a new column called “Gain Type”. The values in the column are either SHORT or LONG depending on the length of time that lot was held. SHORT term gains are those held for 1 year or less. LONG term gains are those held for more than 1 year.
You’ll find the full list of additions, improvements and fixes in this version of StockMarketEye below.
If you are running StockMarketEye 5 and have an active license, please update at your earliest convenience either through the auto-update feature or by downloading and installing from our website.
