StockMarketEye 5.3 Available

We are proud to announce the release of StockMarketEye 5.3 for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

StockMarketEye 5.3 is a large update with many small changes, improvements and fixes. We’ve also updated many of the under-the-hood, internal components that StockMarketEye is built upon to bring you a higher level of performance and stability.

What’s New in StockMarketEye 5.3?

One of the smaller, but important improvements we’ve added in StockMarketEye 5.3, is an improved experience when entering numbers. If you add transactions to your portfolio manually, or even add items to a watchlist, chances are you’ve entered a number into one of the data entry screens. Based on user feedback, we’ve improved this experience to be more accepting of different input and have a more natural number editing.

We’ve also improved the results you get when searching in the Ticker Symbol fields. StockMarketEye 5.3 will now show more targeted results from Yahoo Finance. You can search by ticker symbol or by company/security name. If you have trouble finding the security you’re interested in, trying different variations of the security name can help narrow down the search. As a reminder, we recommend using Yahoo Finance ticker symbols whenever possible as their data coverage is, in general, better than MSN.

Also by popular request, we’ve made the headers for numerical columns right-aligned, just like the data in those columns themselves. Additionally, we’ve improved the auto-sizing of column widths. Auto-sizing will now only take the table’s visible data into account – column header text width will not be used to determine the size of the column. Note that a column could automatically be shrunk to be very narrow, if there is no visible data in that column. You can always resize the columns by dragging the divider between column headers. StockMarketEye will remember the widths, either auto or manually sized, the next time you start. You can read more about configuring columns in our user’s guide page: How To Configure Columns.

In addition to many smaller changes and improvements, we’ve updated much of the under-the-hood software that powers StockMarketEye. We update these components periodically to keep StockMarketEye running smoothly. It improves compatibility with the latest Mac, Windows and Linux versions, as well as helps maintain the highest level of security, stability and performance possible.

Below is the full list of changes in StockMarketEye 5.3.
