Wikinvest Interactive Stock Chart Flex Widgets

While there are Stock Chart Widgets, most are info widgets and lack of any interactivity within the widget. they usually only serve of the information. most of these stock chart widgets are offerings for start pages like igoogle, and or they are to be seen in the desktop. but there are not many for the web either. those are two problems that wikinvest tackles. they offer good Stock chart Widgets for the web and they also bring them to you full of interactivity. that interactivity is that you can add annotations and check out or change other people annotations as it behaves like a graphical widget.

This is useful for any blog or newsite discussing financial information or stock information since you can see the stock movement but also see what happened exactly in each point of the stock movement, why it went down or why it went up. that also means that if you think something is missing and it is not annotated you can add it up. the same goes for something not accurate.


The Widgets seem to be done in Flex and they use both flash and JS to archive their magic. wikinvest are serious widgets and may be just what many following or reporting financial news where waiting for. a fine example of widgets done right that serve a useful purpose.
