StockViz is now encrypted

SSL

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. (ssl.com)

Although everything that is coming from StockViz is encrypted, we depend on external vendors who do not support SSL. Besides, all of our old blog post images are un-encrypted. When both encrypted and un-encrypted data is supplied to your browser, you will get a “mixed content” warning.

You can ignore this warning – both Chrome and Firefox don’t make a big deal out of it. However, Internet Explorer users may face annoying warning messages.

IE users will need to go to Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level -> Display mixed Content and select ‘Enable’

Your Portfolio Correlations

We often like to quote Howard Marks before we begin any discussion on diversification:

If you concentrate your portfolio, your mistakes will kill you;
If you diversify, the payoff from your successes will be diminished.

Irrespective of what your preference is, you can now track it on StockViz. Head over to Portfolio and click on ‘Analytics.’ You should see one-year and one-month correlation charts of your portfolio right away. These are updated overnight.

Here’s how my one-month correlation chart looks like. How does yours look like?

Correlation between Theme components

If you concentrate your portfolio, your mistakes will kill you;
If you diversify, the payoff from your successes will be diminished.
-Howard Marks

Investors can now look at the correlation (over one-year and one-month horizons) between stocks that make up an investment ‘Theme’ strategy. For example, here’s how the one-year correlation of the Financial Strength Value Theme looks like:

one year correlation

A lot of thick blue squares mean that positive correlations are high. Red squares mean negative correlations are high. Whites are the doldrums.

Happy Sankranti and Pongal!

Go Track Yourself On StockViz

The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves. We live in denial of what we do, even what we think. We do this because we’re afraid. We fear we will not find love, and when we find it we fear we’ll lose it. We fear that if we do not have love we will be unhappy.

~ Richard Bach

StockViz is now opening up position and P&L tracking for equity derivatives and option strategies that was previously available only to our demat/trading clients. We now have action buttons that allow you to add/remove equity, futures and options positions to your StockViz account. We’ll keep track of your positions, mark it to market, calculate the P&L, manage expiry account-keeping etc.

You can even specify the actual price at which you transacted, or in case you are using this for simulated trading, specify the hypothetical traded price.

Here’s where you can find the action buttons:
