It's been a long time in the making, but Google finally now offers real-time stock quote information for NASDAQ on Google Finance. This feature is important, and gives Google a bit of an advantage over Yahoo Finance -- you have to pay $13.95 a month if you want real-time quotes there. Now Google supports real-time quotes for the following:

  • Dow Jones Indices
  • NASDAQ Indices
  • NASDAQ Stock Exchange
  • New York Stock Exchange Indices
  • S&P Indices
  • Shanghai Stock Exchange
  • Shenzhen Stock Exchange

This is interesting because according to Yahoo, they don't list any free real-time data in Yahoo Finance at all. This is a huge step in the right direction -- I wonder how long it will be befpre Yahoo makes their real-time data free as well?

  • Why missing HANG SENG INDEX?

    There good news that google added Shanghai Stock, and Exchange Shenzhen Stock Exchange.

    But why missing to add Hang Seng Index (Hong Kong) into real-time stock quote.

    thought i saw that yahoo was realtime for nasdaq today. seems like just a gimmick anyway. you can't trade from the goog,yhoo interface, so by the time you logon to your trading account the prices will change. if real time (up to the second quotes) are important to you, you'd have your trading account open already and be using the live quotes offered there, since they reflect the routing you're account will be using (INET,ARCA).

  • Yawn :-(

    I've been waiting for Google Finance to become useful since its inception. It is still virtually useless. How about free trades across the board. THAT would be useful.

    I could go on and on about how useless it is but I don't have that kind of time.
