I regularly use Yahoo!
chatrooms to look at what people are saying about different stocks and
industries, so I was intrigued to see a link to Google Finance today.
To me, it appears to be almost the same as Yahoo! Finance, and so where’s the value-add? Then I started looking at sector analysis and found the Google Finance sector analysis of financial services easier to navigate than the Yahoo! area.
what I was really after is some way to compare two things: Gold prices
and Banking sector stocks. My idea is a very basic one: Gold goes up
when Banking goes down, and vice versa. Although this idea has
occurred to me before, and I’m sure someone has tracked this, I cannot
find any proof point.
Wherever I go – Google, Yahoo and more –
not one seems to have a simple way to marry the two indices together,
and certainly not over a 30-year or more cycle.
Any comment or view on the theory or charting welcome.
