What is Xinvest?
----------------
Xinvest is a personal finance tracking and performance tool for UNIX
using the X Window System. Xinvest requires Motif 1.2 or later and XPM.

With Xinvest you can:

Centralize record keeping by storing all transactions in account
specific files.

Use currency exchange rates, converting accounts from different
currencies
into your local one.

Calculate yield, total and annualized returns (including the effects of
buys,
sells, and dividends). This provides a means of comparing the results of
all
accounts in a portfolio, be they CDs, bonds, mutual funds, or your
checking
account. The report generator allows you to select report contents and
to
generate multiple reports simultaneously.

Receive automatic price and currency exchange rate updates with the
Xquote
WWW quote retrieval program (http://sunsite.auc.dx/xinvest/xquote).

Plot various transaction parameters such as share price, shares per
transaction, transaction cost, transaction value (at current price),
dividends, internal and total return, and/or cumulative and moving
averages of the above. Plots are bar graph or x-y line charts.

View asset allocation of accounts in a portfolio. Specify categories,
what
percent of an account is in that category, and which accounts are of
interest
and Xinvest will tell you the value and percentage of all categories in
the
defined portfolio. Predefined is a account category to view weighting
of
accounts in the total portfolio. Categories are hierarchical, so you
can
zoom into the makeup of your portfolio. View in text and pie chart
form.

Use the provided financial calculator with commonly used equations.
Included
are FV, PV, FV of sum of payments, and periodic loan payments.

Hopefully, all of this is displayed using an easy-to-use,
point-and-click
interface. There are few command line switches, no dot files, and X
resources are limited to color and font selection allowing you to tailor
the look of the tool to your own preferences.
