He was indeed. He also is an exceptional manager. Maybe the only manager I know who could change the way his team plays, mid way through the game. Personally, I never quite got over Utd's defeat to Roma in the European Cup semis in 1984. We should have played Liverpool
Right now I am using a spread betting demo account from IG.com. Gives me live prices, portfolios (= watchlists) and super charts. Not sure how long I can keep it for without opening a "real" account but it really is good I think. In fact I might even actually open a real account and put a bit of money in there so I can keep using it, thats how good I personally think it is.
Take a few minutes and send them an email.
I found the google finance pages excellent. If enough people complain to them maybe they'll keep the old portfolios going - it surely doesn't cost them much at all.
oilovlam - Does anyone have some suggestions for an alternative......portfolio's (for tracking likely investments) and real time prices (if possible)?
Since the demise of Google finance I've started using Hargreaves Lansdown Watchlists for portfolio tracking which gives the user the option of live prices if you're registered with HL.Not sure if you need to have actual holdings with HL to qualify or just registered but it's a good substitute for GF. Superb information pages as well.
"Encouraging news on the border......"
A lot depends on what the DUP think of the 'deal'.......if they think that NI regulations will diverge from the UK's then they might throw a large spanner in the works. I expect things are on a knifes edge.
I can still see old version on my PC - new version isnt finished yet but I cant believe Google will leave the finance space open for others to make money, so expecting something better than old version.
Just feel the need to say a few words over the grave of the old google finance, which was a fantastic free site providing almost real-time stock prices, portfolios, fantastic charts and detailed dividend information - amongst other things. The replacement site is pale shadow by comparison IMHO - no portfolios, small charts with no dividend information. The old version is still available on my phone and ipad right now, but the PC desktop version got replaced with the "new" version last week sometime.
Maybe it will get better, I certainly hope so as I used the old one a lot.
Google if you are listening (you hear everything anyway....) can we have the old version back please ?.
