Stocks & Commodities V. 23:12 (68-69): Websites For Traders: www.advfn.com by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
When I brought up the home page of Advanced Financial Network (www.advfn.com), it was evident that
several features had been added to it since my last review in June 2003. I’ll have to confess that it was very easy to get distracted by the large number of
advertisements on the site, but once you get past that, you’ll find the site does contain a vast amount of information.
The navigation bar along the top of the page is one indication of the various features available. I also noticed the five dropdown menus, and this was
enough to get my attention. Once I logged in and installed the Java application, the fun started.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN
The first thing that popped up on my screen was a quote screen similar to the one in Figure 1. You have the flexibility to add stock symbols, create your own
list of stocks (monitor), and edit the existing lists. From this screen you can move to one that displays small charts of all the symbols listed on the quote screen.
