KStock "Stock Ticker"
I've written a script called valueportfolio in Perl that uses Lynx to query a variety of web servers on the Internet for price information for my stock portfolio. It knows how to handle several stock exchanges and looks up currency exchange rates as needed to provide common translation into a single currency. (I use $CDN.) I probably ought to modify it to read portfolio data from configuration files, and post the sources. Rework in progress...
There is a companion utility called hilo written as an exercise in Python that calculates various portfolio statistics based on the daily price statistics collected by valueportfolio.

It seems particularly interesting in its inclusion of a tool called sequelpivot which is used to create SQL database VIEWs that are called Pivot Tables. A pivot table is a table of data that contains not only the data, but subtotal and grand-total lines at appropriate places, or other aggregate function data. Rows which contain aggregate data, as opposed to simple data, will have a NULL value in the column(s) which are being summed over. The subtotals will be in new columns created by the view.
It consists of a set of Perl scripts that may be used to construct rule-based trading systems. They include technical analysis " indicators", various sorts of filters, as well as portfolio/money management controls.
It also includes simulator software so that you can throw sample prices at the rules you construct to assess profitability, as well as the risk of sequences of bad trades leading you to ruin...
