Google Finance - now with random number generator feature!

  • I have a modest portfolio of stocks invested, and keep track of it using Google Finance's portfolio system.

    In general Finance Portfolio has been a good system, but since Monday the totals have gone.. mad.

    As I type this email it tells me cost basis of my shares totals £4,920,540, and the current market value is £255,356. Neither figure is remotely correct. I'm not sure how they did this since the same figures for each share are correct; so maybe Javascript cannot add up. That I could believe..

  • This reminds me of what happened recently in Sweden

    According to the Exchange spokesman Carl Norell has no order of that size team into the system. Instead, it is about a parsing incurred in exchange system due to a technical error. The order, Norell writes in an email, anullerades, but still remains a problem why the index derivatives market is closed since just before 10 am this morning.
