Still, we Mac users long to make our Mac lives easier, even if our hard earned investment dollars are going the way of the dodo bird, which, if I’m not mistaken, went south for the winter and never came back. That’s pretty much like my stock portfolio. Here’s a way to watch it all disappear from the convenience of your Mac’s Menubar.
Watch Wealth Disappear
Some of us are gluttons for punishment. Where a few investors see a dip in the market as a buying opportunity– and for every share sold, someone is buying– others of our ilk only want to peak at our portfolio as it fades off into the sunset.
Check out StockTab. It’s the stock market in the Mac’s Menubar so you can glance up quickly or click and see how far down toward the earth’s mantle your retirement has gone. Just like your stocks this week, there’s not much to StockTab.
Click and ye wealth shall not be revealed.
I left the old sample image just to mess with your mind. If AAPL were $536 right now we’d all be shopping for private islands.
There’s more to losing your wealth than just a click and a pretty face. Use StockTab to search for stocks to add to your list. That makes it easy to play like you have money when you’re really too afraid to invest in AAPL, GOOGL, or MSFT. Items on the list can be reordered to match your fears.
Settings are simple, too.
The window itself can be adjusted and the app can standalone all by its lonesome, or be tethered to the Mac’s Menubar. It even floats over other apps so you can be reminded continually of which investments to tell others to avoid.
StockTab is priced about right, works well, but does not have a try-before-you-buy option. Just like real stocks.
