Stock Menulet sits in your menu bar and monitors stock prices. The font color indicates whether a price is increasing (green) or decreasing (red). Any number of stocks can be monitored, and all the prices are displayed together in a drop-down menu with relevant news items. Click the menulet to change the ticker symbol. Check the header to this page for a static shot of Stock Menulet monitoring the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
We created this simple application after an exhaustive search failed to turn up a program we liked. It is dead simple to use: (i) download, (ii) run, (iii) click to change the ticker symbol. The application monitors the rate of price change and alters its update frequency accordingly, so you don't miss a beat.
