Free financial information from ADVFN - in depth information on company financial's and price charts

InvestorEducation / Investing Dec 06, 2006 - 11:39 AM GMT

By: Shahla_Walayat


ADVFN should be the lynch pin of every online trader's portfolio. UK traders are very well catered for, with real-time LSE quotes and charts, all for free. However, US traders can take advantage of the real time indices. Nasdaq and NYSE are also there.

After a simple registration on their site, the free services which ADVFN offer include real time quotes for stocks, real time monitors (which include bid/offer prices and the last price and volume of a share traded), share portfolios, alerts, charts, in depth company information , news and bulletin boards.

Two extremely impressive features are the portfolio and monitoring systems. Like most site portfolios, one is able to create a number of portfolios. However where ADVFN streaks ahead is the completeness of the portfolio tools. When entering a stock, you are able to include additional charges such as broker fees, commission and stamp duty. Bought the same share at many different prices? No problem, just input the share at all those different prices and when the summary is displayed, ADVFN has calculated the average cost spent per share after including all the additional charges at the different purchase prices.

The monitoring system is an extension of following a single real time quote. Instead, it is possible to track (numerically) the share prices in real time. With the monitoring system, you can set alerts to either your e-mail or to your mobile (with the help of an e-mail to sms service).

Using Google as an example of the extensive financial cover ADVFN provide in addition to news, quotes and charts -
