I finally got a chance to play around with my MyTrade page. The site is still in beta but it’s coming along nicely. Think of it as a personalized start page, not unlike My Yahoo, NetVibes or Google Personalized Home Page (iGoogle), except MyTrade is geared toward stocks. The site allows you to customize your page by adding various pods (widgets). There are pods for stock watch lists, charts, quotes, news, videos by stock ticker, links/bookmarks, RSS feeds (you can use it to subscribe to blogs or other sites with feeds), etc. They’ve even made it easy to copy somebody else’s page to use as a template for your own page. I know the founders, Andy and Landon Swan, have some more features to roll out. It should be interesting to watch MyTrade grow from its current version 0.03 to version 1.0.
