Financial Site of the Day (Nov97?
Ahem, last I looked we were already into November. As a public service here's this month's thread and a link to Madelyn's famous Calculators page.
If you have a hankering to see the old links, here's a link to Financial Site of the Day (Oct97)
Here are a some gems on the Morningstar site:
One Year to a Better Investment Mind (M*'s editors book recommendations for learning to invest.)
Reader's Favourite Books (More book recommendations from M* readers.)
This is a terrific site with its links to calculators.Do you know where I might get a site to give me some real time quotes from Hong Kong and Japan stock markets ? P.S. For those who read my message on stock market correction it will still begin this week.Thanks again.
Here are the first two articles in a series about measuring risk in mutual funds
Longshot,this is the site for int'l stock market quotes:
Here is a link to the C.D. Howe Institute. It contains a list of publications and backgrounders about policy issues of immediate concern to Canadians. David Laidler just added his backgrounder on NAIRU and its relationship to Bank of Canada monetary policy.
This one gives updates on the Dow, and all 30 stocks in the Dow. It's at http://www.dbc.com/cgi-bin/htx.exe/dbcfiles/dowt.html?SOURCE=/blq/usawww
I'm excited about this one. This Web site provides access to the complete database of publicly accessible public company and mutual fund filings filed with the Canadian securities regulators using the SEDAR electronic filing system. You can even download a fund propectus and financial statements.
It's at http://www.sedar.com/homepage.htm
Maybe Bylo or gummy can hotspot it for us.
Glad to oblige y'all...
David Zgodzinski in today's Gobe & Mail highlights few impressive Stock Sites. Check them out because they are quite useful.
for market index updates 24 hr/day try
click on INDU for north & south american markets
click on UKX for european markets
click on NKY for asian markets
WARNING during the day updates are fairly timely but at night they may lag by a fair amount, however between the above noted yahoo site (from Rick Nov 7) which can have the same problem (lag time that is) and this one results should be satisfactory.
Nixus, on another thread, has noted the belated arrival of the TSE to the web:
The third instalment of Risky Business is now available at ß & R².
Thanks for the info.RICK
The 4th installment of Risky Business is available from Morningstar.See Bylo above for hotlink.
For one-year comparative graphs of various Canadian mutual funds see:
New on the Bookmarks: The Canadian Business Map. Hope you're not on a 14.4 modem, as their New User page took almost a minute to load through a cable modem!
"This new navigation tool brings the world to your desktop by virtually integrating international, national, provincial and municipal business information."
"By using the Canadian Business Map, you can find industry analysis, municipal statistical profiles, stock quotes, banks, mortgage calculators, business news, examples of business plans, currency convertors and a lot more!"
I was unable to open the the Can. Bus. Map, got as far as the home page, selected english and wound up with "Internet Explorer unable to open site", or something like that, any ideas as to why? I am new to this and would be grateful for enligtenment.
Two possibilities: 1. Their server was down for "adjustments"; 2. You're running an older version of Explorer.
Just got in OK running Netscape Communicator 4.03 (Mac) on a 14.4 modem (my cable server seems to be down). Slower than a glacier, but it's there.
There are interesting insights at: http://www.dismal.com/thoughts/crash.stm
Another interesting site on the web involves some discussion of "true" value investing, and some education on what some common characteristics outperforming companies have
That is one of their threads. The main site is located here
IBM and Dow Jones have put together an interesting website on risk and equity investment return in 29 countries.
For those folks who can't get enough of the Oracle of Omaha's wit and wisdom, here's some more: The Capitalist's Woodstock
THE ORACLE OF OMAHA
Good stuff on pensions here. http://www.benefitscanada.com/Content/paper/table.html
Sorry, that didn't work. Gummy, why didn't the hotlink show up?
I'll try this one more time. Benefits
For more than you ever imagined you'd ever want to know about setting up links and doing other HTML tricks, see Tables 'n such.
Also learning from gummy
Gummy, you've created a monster
gummy i liked the flowers!
Check out the site for Dow Jones Interactive Publishing at
Also, you will note a recent software which can be downloaded at the same site:
The software can be used to research a variety of topics. There is a fee structure which specifies the cost of various kinds of research that may be conducted. However, the first month is free (except for a couple of very specialized research requests).
You need to call Dow Jones at an 800 number and supply some information to be able to download the software. The number (1-800-369-7466) needs to be called after filling out an e-mail form. The related instructions are given at the site.
The software may be useful especially to financial advisors and brokers. I am not an FA or broker, but I downloaded the software just to evaluate it.
Here's a new growing site: Investor 1 They are adding a new Mutal Fund Section :-) and the current discussion area is going to be upgraded this week!!!! (talked to the sys admin. yesterday - email@example.com)
