    Google finance is a useful tool for beginners, I am using it to check out market quotes while I am working, I think that it would be great if the number of technical tools will be increased.

  • Very often I am using google finance especially while I am at work and cannot access my trading platform, it is a nice tool the only minus I noticed is that you cannot use the whole bunch of indicators and oscillators that I use on my terminal.
