What is Google Finance?
Within Google.com, a search tab called Google Finance connected the user’s interests to many Google tabs for many years. So it would make sense if Finance was adding, giving people access to primary financial data.
Google remembers what you have been looking for as a search engine component. Therefore, the top 5 stock quotes for a specific firm will be listed on your home page below the “Recently searched” button if you have recently looked for stock quotes for that company. In addition, you can select a specific firm from there to view a real-time stock quote on another page by tapping on it.
Because SEO uses for this, you will receive headlines for large companies of a higher calibre. The company-specific news in the prior edition is not available in this one. If you want information on a specific company, go to the news tab and check there.
Positive aspects of the new Google Finance Tool
Even today, desktop computers and mobile devices can access the Google Finance Tool, and the mobile version is far more user-friendly than the previous version. Even though it may condense the information in a mobile browser, everything is still there.
You can search for various businesses by name or stock symbol once in the Google Finance interface.
It includes a user-friendly platform, inexperienced investors, and well-rendered graphics to get the most recent information on stocks, currencies, bonds, funds, and other things.
WHO USES GOOGLE FINANCE?
The new Google Finance Tool won’t thrill anyone but passive buy-and-hold investors. Instead, it appears that Google will only offer general information on finances and stocks that is accessible to the general public.
However, broad information about stocks and finances is not the same as what investors need. To make investing decisions, serious investors do their homework and perform fundamental or technical analyses.
Investors utilizing fundamental analysis see a company’s worth from a long-term perspective. Therefore, the company’s specific activities and balance sheet, as well as information about the current status of stock. Google Finance does provide some of this information, but not enough.
Traders that use technical analysis look at a chart’s price movement to help them find the stock, the only chart that google’s finance tool provides does not include crucial technical analysis of investors’ needs.
