One of the examples I provided was a stock feed/portfolio management

The 'market' consisted of just 16 stock symbols and their associated market
price when I was
making the example.

1000 portfolios were generated with 5-16 buy orders initially pushed (assume
10 positions on average).
Any buy orders would also be tracked and would also force an update of the
associated portfolio.

I then generated 2000 random StockTicks and pushed them thru the market
individually, simulating a
ticker plant. This would trigger the necessary updates only to those
portfolios containing the stock, as
well as updating the overall portfolio value.

This example took about 20 minutes to code, with a few more minutes to tweak
the output to make it
more appealing.

How would you do that with the Signals2 object?
