Google Finance updates

After 6 month from launch, Google Finance has its second update (read more about the first update). This time more changes have been made:

  1. They redesigned the homepage adding currency information, sector performance for the U.S. market, and a listing of top market movers along with the relevant and important news of the day.
  2. Top movers section added to highlight most active companies by price, market cap, volume, and popularity which is calculated by the sophisticated Google Trends.
  3. Richer portfolio capabilities that let you import other online portfolios to Google Finance, use different views and add transactions to make it easier to track your investments.

  4. Displaying up to 40 years of data for U.S. stocks.

  5. More data can be shown in your Google Personalized homepage gadget.

The more interesting thing I find is the 'Feedback' button on the top right corner. I suppose they are desperate in receiving more feedback and suggestions to come up with more innovative ideas to fight with Yahoo Finance. I personally find the new portfolio layout a bit confusing and not as easy-to-use as before which is a bit disappointing.
