Markets: An open source application that tracks Linux desktop and mobile investments

briefly: A Linux application that can help you quickly track market trends.

Generally, if you are an investor/trader, you will log in to a service on your web browser to monitor and track the market to find investment opportunities.

But what if you want an application for Linux desktops and Linux phones? Considering that we do have some products suitable for Android/iOS smartphones, it should also be suitable for Linux devices!

Monitor global stocks through Yahoo Finance

“Market” uses data from Yahoo Finance to provide you with the information you need about stocks, cryptocurrencies, currencies, etc.

Although it is a simple desktop-centric application, it can be used on Linux smart phones and provides some valuable features. Let me list the main highlights you can look forward to.

Market characteristics

With Markets, you can track, monitor and analyze market trends and make investment decisions.

There are several functions along the way, including:

  • Ability to customize the update interval
  • Build a personal investment portfolio
  • Add any symbol or currency
  • View time in international format
  • Dark mode
  • Support Linux mobile phones (PinePhone, Librem5)
  • Selectively delete inventory monitors

As mentioned earlier, it is a very simple Linux application that helps you keep track of financial data.

Market dark mode

Moreover, I want to say that it works very well, allowing you to quickly search for stocks, commodities, and other things to quickly build a personal portfolio on your Linux desktop.

Using dark mode, viewing it and tracking market trends is a breeze.

You can choose from the existing list of add and delete markets according to your choice. Moreover, the international time format is very useful. As you noticed in the screenshot, the time refers to your time zone by default, which should be useful.

In addition, from the list, you can click on it to launch a browser window to get full details about Yahoo Finance; this is what it looks like:
