pystocker v0.1.25 - lightweight ncurses stock tracker
Built using python and ncurses, pystocker is a command-line based utility that provides simple and versatile interface to track stocks around the world.
Featuring a series of permanent tickers of general market information at the top, you can follow many different features of a single stock and compare them to others. To provide a more visual experience, each of the stocks is color coded to signify the performance on the day.
