Do You Use any Stock Monitoring Software?

Posted on: July 10, 2007

The is a question posted to me, the following is my answer.

Most stock market movements are best characterized as “market noise”. Market noise reduces the clarity of our judgments so it is better to be avoided. I review my own portfolio and my clients’ portfolios every quarter. In the review, stock prices play only a small role, fundamentals of the companies are the more important factor. So the straight answer to your question is no. I don’t think any “noise” monitoring software useful and I don’t use them.
