Google mobile search gets redesigned results for stocks

Google has launched a new mobile-optimized way to display search results for stocks. This works around the inherent limitations of how much information can be shown at once on a phone's small screen by letting you swipe horizontally to navigate. When you search for your favorite stock ticker symbol on your smartphone, you'll be presented with a result page that can be seen to the left in...

TradingSim lets you practice day trading (and I ask if it's any good)

TradingSim is an Flash-based day trading simulator. You can practice buying and selling all sorts of securities without involving (and risking) any money. Some might say I should have put this under our "time-wasters" category, but I think it can actually be a useful tool for people who are looking into day trading (that's how I found it). The market for trading simulators (and training in...

TweetyStock iPhone app: follow your stock portfolio on Twitter

People have been talking about the market on Twitter almost as long as there's been a Twitter. Some Twitter clients even automatically turn stock symbols into links.

Go from Twitter bird to Wall Street vulture with StockTwits

Despite some recent competition from sites like Plurk, Twitter is hanging tough as the microblogging center of the web. Now stock-market investors are catching on to Twitter, too, with an add-on site called StockTwits. StockTwits collects tweets that mention a stock symbol, prefaces with a dollar sign. For example, $AAPL was very popular this week, with the Steve Jobs keynote at WWDC. If you...

Watch your stocks in Google Calendar

For some bizarre reason, the Official Gmail Blog has announced a new feature for Google Calendar that is powered by Google Finance. Nevertheless, it's a pretty cool new trick: now, you can search for your favorite stock symbol in Google Calendar to add a repeating all-day event of that stock's closing price each day. If you've been looking for an easy, casual way to keep track of a few stocks...

YouTube IPO in the works?

Fellow AOL blogger Tom Taulli at Blogging Stocks speculates that YouTube may be preparing for an IPO. The evidence? 1) YouTube's investor is Sequoia Capital, which was also an early investor in Google and "is not about making a great returns on its investments; rather, it wants to make blow-out returns." 2) YouTube just hired Gideo Yu, former Yahoo! treasurer, to be its CFO. Despite YouTube's...

A First Look at the New Yahoo! Finance Charts Beta

Earlier this week Yahoo! announced changes that would roll out soon to upgrade aspects of the Yahoo! Finance property. One of these changes, and probably the most significant for daily users, is the completely overhauled Stock Charts.

Upgrades to Yahoo! Finance Announced

Yahoo! announced in a press release that many long-awaited upgrades were soon to appear on Yahoo! Finance, albeit some only in beta form. Stock Charts - Google showed us that they could beat Yahoo! to the punch with their Ajaxy charting tools.

After last month's rumors, Google took nobody by surprise today with the launch of Google Finance. The new financial portal is pretty slick, with a similar feel to Google Maps.

Rumor Alert: Google Finance?

This one falls firmly into the wild speculation category, but Search Engine Journal is reporting that this morning it saw a number of referrals from google.com/finance.

This would seem to indicate that google.com/finance is a site...
