Folks, I've had it with Quicken. I can't live with their subscription-based model. Looking for alternatives.
I only use following features which are important to me
a) Enter my expenses manually (I don't use online sync and don't want to)
b) Enter my investment transactions manually (I don't use online sync and don't want to)
c) Download latest prices of securities owned (which let's me see how much money I got but I'm okay if I lose this)
d) Keep track of cost-basis, short/long term capital losses for tax filing purposes (I don't want to lose this)
The reason I persisted with Quicken was because they didn't seem like they would move to Cloud based model. Now I'm entirely not sure about that based on the direction the company is going. Not only am I finding it a challenge to discover alternatives, the one that might work seem to be storing my data online - a complete non-starter for me. I want my data on my PC, period.
Appreciate any advice, or I'm going to become an expert in Excel (not a good way to spend one's life).
