Google Finance Talks To China (But Not U.S.)

Google Finance recently gained the ability to share real-time stock quotes from China, and it’s rather proud of this fact.  Also, in the event you’re wondering why we don’t get real-time quotes from within the U.S., Google says it’s all the SEC’s fault.

I think I like Katie Jacobs Stanton, the group product manager who made a post on the Official Google Blog.  “Now that the Chinese stock data is live, we’re hoping our friends at the SEC will take note and approve the last sale proposal we announced in January,” she wrote.  Rather to-the-point, eh?

Stanton then continued, “This proposal would allow us to offer our users free and unlimited access to real-time last sale prices for NYSE and Nasdaq stocks.  As soon as the SEC approves, we’ll flip the switch.”

Google Finance is a product we’d (sort of) given up for dead a while ago, so this helps demonstrate Google’s interest in it.  Also, in regards to the Chinese stock quotes, it’s nice to see some progress taking place.

Now if the Securities and Exchange Commission would hurry up, we’d be all set.
