, a Cross Between NetVibes and Yahoo Finance…

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.

    Thanks Mike….love your page and yes….lots to do always 🙂

    What readers are looking at on your page is a branded mytrade page….great for bloggers who would rather link to something branded (that links back to them)….instead of sending people to Yahoo Finance. 🙂

    I don’t see the advantage over NetVibes which already offers all of these finance features with the advantage that it doesn’t misbehave. Just incrementing version numbers doesn;t impress anyone these days, firefox crashed twice on me when i tested out this latest version of mytrade?

    besides, I’ve user another site somewhat similar in nature:

    In my opinion, sanebull is more interactive, but mytrade is more traditional. it will be interesting to see a combination of both.

    I’m a netvibes dude too, but Personally I love the idea of all the content on the page changing when I change stocks like mytrade does. Sanebull too. Plus if you remember the first months of netvibes it was a total tech mess…big deal.

    The concept of watching wallstrip and tradermike and all these guys I read change their watchlists or see how they look at things is what’s exciting. Needs some alert feautures. Let’s just hope tradermike keeps his page updated for us (hinthint)

    Good move mike.
