Google Finance only allows tracking a stock portfolio. Is there a service or a desktop program that allows tracking of different currencies with respect to a reference one, and get the current value of the lot?

I'm looking for two things:

  1. (mandatory) the ability to input the amount I have for each currency, and get out the total sum I possess as of today considering the current rates.

  2. (optional) the ability to see a graph of each currency's recent trends, similar to Google Finance, but in a more lightweight presentation.

GnuCash is more of a bookkeeping system, but also supports portfolio management - can get stock & mutual fund reports automatically from the web, allows you to control how you want currency conversion handled, and generated text & graphical reports in the currency of your choice.

GNUCash runs on GNU/Linux, BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.
