Stock Capital Gains

You need more information, I think to calculate stuff needed for TAXES. Such as capital gains.
You need to remember the stock commission so they can be added to the COST BASIS.
It needs to separate Long-term capital gains from short term.
It needs to separate Qualified Dividends.

Stock Data: dependent values.

Stocks typically are bought and sold for a number of shares at a price/share resulting in a price.
But you should be able to enter any two of these and have the third one calculated.

If all three are entered, they should be checked for consistency. (I'm new, maybe it does this already.)

More decimals! Stocks trade fractional shares

Handling of decimal values must be done carefully. At the very least, you must handle variable numbers of decimal places.
Stocks are bought and sold using 4 decimal digits lately, but in the past they were done with fractions (1/64 ? I think).
