Excellent

A wealth of knowledge and tools

Poor home page and daunting on first visit

The world of the financial markets is very a murky place. If you have no experience and no idea how they work then starting out can be a very daunting prospect indeed. Screens of figures, bulls and bears, market cap, RNS, EPS, PE ratio, what the hell is he talking about? Sites like ADVanced...

“ADVFN Real Time for freeeee”

published 20/08/2001

Free real tim prices

Poor design and content, lack of editorial muscle.

I’ve been using ADVFN (Advanced Financial Networks) since the untimely demise of Ukinvest, which was by far and away my favourite site. It has taken a couple of weeks to get used to the look and feel of ADVFN, which I had used briefly in the past, but moved away from for reasons which have not...

“Prepare to be Impressed”

published 12/02/2001

real time stock quotes, free, reliable

for trading rather than research

ADVFN is the lynch pin of every online trader's portfolio. When I signed on to the site, my main focus was on the FREE REAL TIME QUOTES provided, but I have continued to be impressed by every aspect of their service. After a simple registration on their site, the free services which ADVFN offer...

“Real time heaven”

published 14/11/2000

Real time prices and trades info

not aesthetically pleasing, poor bulletin boards

ADVFN.com is yet another internet finance site, but of all the sites I have used for tracking my portfolio and plotting my next move, it's the one that gives me the data most efficiently. As with all websites of this type, ADVFN is made up of a number of elements, some premium, most free. I have...

“Best site for price quotes”

published 08/12/2000

Real time share prices

Seems to have more downtime than its peers

and for detailed trades info. This site is always my first choice for price quotes because it gives real time prices for free. Other sites are normally 20 minute delay prices or real time only if you pay. From the price quotes page, there is a link to detailed trades info, to see all the trades...

“one of the best”

published 31/12/2000

free and reliable trades/quotes

n/a

one of the best if not the best sites for basic info on trades and iniyial info on companies (fundementals section). the site provides 'real-time' stock quotes/trades which are updated every few minutes. the accuracy is excellent compared to some other sites i've used before and the layout of how...

“What Would I do Without it”

published 02/05/2001

free real time quotes, free charts

none

This website has many features inclduing real-time quotes, intraday chart and historical charts, lists of the biggest risers and fallers, a bulletin board and lots more all for free. This is essential for any investor. You can also get extra facilities but of course this does cost a fee. For £5 a...

By background I enjoy investing and currently have holdings in over 30 shares. When I began to use the web more and more sign posts sent me to ADVFN . I rapidly became hooked. Availability of information is a must for an investor and with this site it is all too easy to find virtually everything...

“ADVFN, you're a star”

published 21/06/2001

great site with everything

no international support, can slow down at times

There are literally hundreds of sites devoted to finance and as far as I'm concerned for UK Shares this site is the ultimate. It has great charting facilities, where you can look at intraday charts or historical data. It has AFX and RNS news and information. There are top lists of shares data...

They are losing lawsuit after lawsuit. The SEC has charged them with felony stock fraud. http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/2009/comp21053.pdf While the company AFN.l continues to issue stock and pay its executives over $500,000 a year. Nevertheless they have recently thrown the towel in, involving recent litigation and it has cost them dear.... http://seekingalpha.com/instablog/407002-the-aft-deck/14495-new-stock-fraud-scandal-at-londons-afn I wouldn't be paying for any long term memberships. http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/2009/comp21053.pdf

Over the years i've used different desktop applications for tracking my investments and for choosing which companies to invest in. The problem i always had was how to check on my investment without my computer. ADVFN solved it all for me!!! it's all online accessible from anywhere and they also...

So many

I would absolutely not recommend ADVFN. When you join they put you on a rolling contract and give you no reminder whatsoever that they are taking your subscription out of your account when 12 months has elapsed and your subscription is due again. You are meant to write in to them, not e-mail or...

“ADVFN No.1”

published 07/02/2005

Real time prices & good BB's

Hopeless unless you pay subscriptions

Moved from iii 3 years ago and haven't looked back. Started with the free service & then upgraded to basic streaming without the timeout. Now using the rather more expensive Level 2 service for day trading & cannot imagine being without it. £60 a month gives you the vital edge and will save...
