Web Site of the Week: YahooFinance
Posted by: Christine Bulson
Now that the government is assuring us that the recession in ending, more people may be interested in getting back in the stock market. My financial advisor recommends YahooFinance.com as a great site to get concise information on a stock and check quotes. Yahoo!Finance is also available as a free app for the IPhone. The front page gives the latest market summary and top stories of the day. There are also links to information on investing and personal finance. You may also create your own portfolio. Using the search for a stock quote you find a page full of information - current quote, a graph for the stock volume of the day, the previous and opening quote, the volume, day and year's range, etc. Current news about the stock is prominent and there are numerous links to additional information. With all this knowledge you may make good financial decisions and will be doing your part to improve the economy.
