Create an editable stock portfolio widget for multiple markets.
Create a stock portfolio, for multiple markets, that users can edit and add the quantities of stocks they have so can instantly see how there investments are doing. As was used in iGoogle here https://sites.google.com/site/cnybroe/iGoogleStockGadget
Many people are currently looking to move from iGoogle now it's shutting down and there are a lot of people looking at either NetVibes or IGHome but neither has a good stock portfolio gadget.
I personally would be very grateful if you had one as this is probably the main reason for me using this browser type dashboard and I've seen many more users looking for this widget in various forums.
igoogle had the absolute best stock widget. It is the main reason I didn't leave igoogle for netvibes until the day they shut down igoogle. I don't understand why netvibes can't invest a little time in their own stock chart widget.
The Netvibes stock portfolio widget has stopped working today.
It just says "Widget http error".
The stock charts widget stopped working a few weeks ago. It just says "This widget cannot be displayed because of invalid XML syntax."
I am not a programmer. If anyone knows how to fix these please do so.
There is a good stock portfolio widget for netvibes. See the below URL: http://eco.netvibes.com/apps/558749/stock-portfolio

Me too. I need it back. Thanks.
Also looking for the same.
The Stock Quote Tracker widget from stockwidgets.net had great graphs and information but it stopped working a few days ago.
Can someone please write another one?

I would like to add the S&P Toronto Stock exchange to my home page, does anyone know the code/abreviation to use?
I cannot figure out how to add stocks. It is so easy on MYMSN, but they are shutting down Sept 30.14, so I tired this. Perhaps I will write my own app.
For those who are looking for a good stock portfolio widget, try this widget which is very close to what iGoogle used to have: http://eco.netvibes.com/apps/558749/stock-portfolio

I tend to loose my stocks in the Netvibes current ones but can't work out why so I'm always having to add them back in. This is another reason why a new stock portfolio widget would be great!
I'm going to try Yahoo's as mentioned below.
Is it just me, I can't figure out how to save the stocks and info once i enter them in? If i refresh the page, my stock disappear and it goes back to the default look.
agree- main issue is I cannot get DJIA or NASDAQ -- Yahoo's portfolio is OK and shows critical info - but I like NetVibes overall look better
Nice post, Bevan. Second that!
