While My Yahoo! can’t control the direction of the market, we want to make tracking your stocks a little more pleasant.
We’ve recently made some improvements to the Stock Portfolios module:
- We replaced the symbols for major market indices with the indices’ names. Bye bye, ^SPC. Hello, S&P 500.
- We made the price change and percent change easier to read, replacing the graphical arrows with standard + and – symbols. This should also make the data print properly and work with screen readers and other assistive devices.
- We’ve given you more control by adding a Preferences panel. If you don’t need the price change and percentage change columns, you can now hide them to reduce clutter. And if you have more than one portfolio, you can determine the order they are displayed on your My Yahoo! page. Click on the “gear” icon at the top of the module to see these new settings.
- If you set upper and lower limit indicators for a symbol, an indicator appears to the left of the current price when the stock is above or below your limits. In the example below, PHO has fallen below my lower limit of 20. Time to buy?
Tip: To set upper and lower limits, click on the “Edit” link next to the name of your portfolio. This will take you to the “Edit your portfolio” page. Towards the bottom of the page, in “Step 4: Advanced Features”, you can indicate which extra information you’d like to track, then click on “Enter More Info” to input the information.
