Google Unveils Google Finance

Google finally has an answer to Yahoo and MSN’s financial sites in its new beta version of Google Finance. It takes advantage of Google’s long-reaching access to resources such as news and blogs, and offers unique features that users may find helpful and useful enough to steer them away from the sites they used to get their financial news and information from.

These features include a stock chart with plotted news events. When you look up a particular company, you will see a Flash chart with letters corresponding with news on the right side of the page plotted at certain points on the line. So, if the stock of a certain company changed drastically at 10 a.m. today, you can potentially see what the reason for the change was.

Users will also be able to adjust the time zoom on the stock charts without having to reload the page. If you want to view a 3-month zoom, the timeline above the chart will shift to a 3-month span, and the chart below will display this 3-month span in detail, including the news plots mentioned above. This is because of the Flash used to create the chart, but users whose browsers have difficulty with Flash have the option of using a more traditional chart.
Another smooth feature is the management details for each company. Users can scroll their pointer over someone’s name and read a quick bio which includes his/her position in the company, length of service in their position, and their age. Links leading to a more detailed bio and compensation information offered by Reuters as well recent trading activity information offered by Yahoo Finance are also there for users to click on.

Google Finance will cover companies in North America for the time being, but Google plans on expanding its service to cover other countries in the near future.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.
