This is pretty cool as I can now check my favorite Canadian stocks including Grande Cache Coal (GCE) or even Google (GOOG). From what I see, I really appreciate what Google (GOOG) has done with Google Finance Canada. You know that they are going to continue to improve it so it will only get better. Of course if you wanted to you could always visit the Nasdaq site for all of your financial information.
