How do you track alternative investments such as hedge funds where you
contribute an initial deposit and then our get performance results...Would
also be simlar to 401K funds where you are invested in a asset that doesnt
have a price but you still want to track gains and losses?

I would avoid the AddShares-RemoveShares method, because that does
not give good analyses.

I would establish an initial hypothetical price of perhaps $100.
Then I would consider accounting for gain periods with a Dividend,
and I would adjust the price downward to reflect losses.

Money going in or coming out would be entered with the current
"price", allowing Money to calculate the number of shares.

There is not a single preferred way to handle this kind of thing.
