Google Adds Stock Charts

Google yesterday added stock charts to its search results. Entering MSFT, Microsoft's ticker symbol, into the Google search box now returns a graph of the company's stock performance for the day, along with other financial details.

Google yesterday added stock charts to its search results. Entering MSFT, Microsoft's ticker symbol, into the Google search box now returns a graph of the company's stock performance for the day, along with other financial details.And for those using SMS-capable mobile phones, stock quotes are available using Google SMS by sending a text message to 46645 (GOOGL).

As it turns out, Yahoo Search offers stock charts, too. In fact, clicking on the stock chart on the Google results page leads to Yahoo Finance, sort of. It's actually a Google page that frames results from four financial news sources: ClearStation, The Motley Fool, MSN Money Central, and Yahoo Finance. Yahoo Finance just happens to be the default page in Google's frame.
