Coming soon to StockMarketEye…

StockMarketEye is about to get a lot better…

We’ve dropped a few hints about it already, but here’s the official announcement:

StockMarketEye 3.0 is coming soon!

While apps similar to StockMarketEye are getting out of the game, we’re raising ours.

We haven’t settled on an exact launch date yet, but we’re aiming for the first or second week of January (2013).

Pricing and Licensing

Anyone who has previously purchased StockMarketEye will be able to upgrade to the new 3.0 version for only $20, for a limited time.

At the same time, we will also be raising the price of a new license to $59.95.

So, if you’re considering purchasing a new license, there’s really no difference between purchasing now plus upgrading in January, or waiting to purchase in January.

Our licensing model will also be changing to allow anyone who purchases for personal use to install StockMarketEye on all of their personal computers. Businesses will need to purchase one license per computer (but contact us for bulk discounts). We’ll give more details about the new licensing structure in a later post closer to launch date.

What’s New in 3.0?

We’ve been working on StockMarketEye 3.0 for over 9 months and there’s so many new and improved features that it’s hard to list them all. So here’s just a short list of the biggest new features and improvements.

  • Reports View – the current “Transactions” view of a Portfolio has been upgraded into a more general area for all types of reports. The new reports view will include the old transactions view, a new gain/loss report and a back-in-time report. But it also has room to grow and will be the place we add other types of reports in the future.
  • Brokerage Import – you can now import data directly from your brokerage accounts at select brokerages. This is an extremely useful feature and one that we hope will make it much easier for users to get started with StockMarketEye. Some of the supported brokerages are Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, Scottrade, E*Trade, Vanguard and more.
  • New and Improved Portfolio Data Entry Windows – the way you record buys/sells and other transactions in a Portfolio has been streamlined. The data entry windows have been redesigned to make it easier to enter transactions, whether they are buys/sells, dividends, splits or cash transactions.
  • Under-the-Hood Performance Improvements – there have been countless under the hood changes and improvements to StockMarketEye. You’ll notice that the new version starts faster and uses less memory. You’ll also see significant speedups for some features such as importing portfolios and watchlists. Essentially, large parts of StockMarketEye were rewritten in order to give us room to grow and make future enhancements easier.
  • And much more… – we’ve made many smaller changes and improvements to help make managing your investments as easy as possible. Here’s just a few: “bulk add” in Watchlists, OFX/QFX import in Portfolios, improved move/copy/transfer from one Portfolio to another, improved PDF printing, multiple selection and even more.
  • We will post more details soon, including some screenshots of the new features. So stay tuned.
