Share price information and realtime news search

We now have a share price lookup tool available on Shareworld, it will accept both company names and ticker symbols and will return simple share information including last price, day high/low and trade volume.

The price information is pulled from Yahoo Finance using PHP, the main downside is that the data is several hours old.

In addition to price information, the tool will also search Yahoo News, Twitter and Interactive Investor Discussion Forums for information on the stock in question and will return real-time news and discussions for any particular stock.
