Here's an interesting little story from Garett Rogers over at ZDNet. It appears that Google (GOOG) will be releasing a Canadian version of Google Finance. Woo hoo... all I can say is, it's about time. Google Finance is one of my favorite Google blogs. Now it is going to be available in my native Canada.According to ZDNet:
Posted by Dion Loy, Google Finance engineer
We’re pleased to introduce Google Finance Canada, a localized version of Google Finance tailored specifically, as you might guess, for Canadian investors. Canadians are the second largest group of Google Finance users, and as a Canadian myself, I’m excited to see Canadian financial information presented in the familiar easy to use Google Finance format. This new edition includes:
Top financial news from Canadian sources
Search with a preference for Canadian companies
Front-page high level economic data from the Bank of Canada
Portfolios in Canadian currency (or the currency of your choice)
Equity data from the Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture Exchange, and Canadian mutual funds In addition, stock quotes and charts for Canadian-listed companies are now available through the Google.com web search.
I look forward to the Canadian version of Google Finance. While the story was leaked early, an official announcement is apparently scheduled for next Tuesday or Wednesday.
