After putting real-time and streaming quotes to its financial site, Google is again at it, this time adding real-time, self-updating financial news stream to Google Finance, the hopes that financial workers would turn to their financial services site to give them the edge in the market.
Google Finance will feature news stories minute by minute, all throughout the day. And if you’re in need of these vital information you can have it two ways – via the Google Finance homepage or Google’s dedicated news page. For the News section, news items will be streamed from 8am-530pm ET, which is actually 90 minutes before the US trade market gets into action and 90 minutes as well after trading stops.
Now to make Google Finance more useful, Google has also did some enhancements to the site design and overall navigation feature. These include the following:
- recent quotes are streamed live in the left-navigation bar, reducing the need to chect quote tickers
- stock prices, index, sector comparisons and interactive chart are streamed during market hours on company pages
- interactive Related companies page now allows table customization for comparing companies along specified dimensions
