Google finance android app not updating
Google Finance will discontinue its portfolio feature as part of an overhaul that will occur this month.
The company says it’s part of “an ongoing effort to make Google Finance more accessible and user-friendly for a wider audience,” but there’s no explanation for why the portfolio tracker will be discarded.
The site guides investors in linking all their external financial accounts, including brokers, banks, and loans, to calculate their net worth.
At this point, customers can talk with an advisor, or just keep using the site’s tools on their own.
There are other options if this one doesn’t appeal.
One of my favorite portfolio management sites is Sig Fig, which also shows expenditures on fund management fees (see chart 1), and can suggest less expensive alternatives.
Still, the tools are free even without signing on for the management service.The robo-advisory service partners with TD Ameritrade, Fidelity, and Schwab, so clients of these brokers can just transfer some cash into the managed account, and be on their way.Sig Fig also has mobile apps that run on i OS and Android devices.The tablet apps are especially elegant, and make viewing and customizing charts extremely easy.It can handle options transactions though it doesn’t have any options-specific tools built in (yet).
