  • Seeking Alpha fires a shot at Bloomberg, StreetAccount [View news story]
    Marcbee, we don't currently have plans for a Blackberry app. In the meantime, our mobile website should work well on a Blackberry, and you can get email alerts on your stocks instead of notifications in an app.

  • Alcatel-Lucent Q2 net loss widens; Qualcomm to buy stake; shares leap [View news story]
    I don't get why Qualcomm would buy a stake in ALU. Business deals which involve ownership stakes never seem to make sense for either side.

    Partnering at the hip with an ownership stake potentially stops ALU selecting a different supplier in future, and locks QCOM into providing a specific product to ALU which may not make sense for it in the future.

    Tack, that's v. useful feedback - thank you. We'll check the performance on the main Market Currents page and ensure it's fast. We're reconsidering a more radical design of the home page.

    Do you use Market Currents to track all market developments, or mainly what's going on with your stocks?

    Hi Tack, I'll leave Jason to address the content issues (he runs the Market Currents team), so I'll just focus on the product issues. The Market Currents unit on the home page (not the Top News unit, but the unit below that) didn't show only headlines - it always showed full Market Currents. But perhaps that's your impression because but the new format takes more space so you see fewer of them.

    One of the advantages of moving to headline + bullets is that we can now show headlines wherever we want to, and experiment with the ability to expand to see the details without leaving the page.

    We couldn't do that with the previous version, because there was no headline.

    thorn, that's interesting. Can you give more background so I can understand your goals: why are you looking to paste them into a Word doc? (Wonder if there's a better way to help you).

    bbro, we have a section on US Economy: http://bit.ly/12XOc0o

    Would you want something more narrow than that? If so, what would be the exact definition?

    pjsburk, we're still covering earnings. At the top of the main Market Currents page (http://bit.ly/xy34Z5) is a dropdown that says "All", and can be changed to "Earnings" if that's all you want to see. It takes you to:

    peterburgess, are you using the Android app or the iPhone app? We should be out with updates for both apps, with the Android app first (due to Apple's app submission process).

    American in Paris, I guess you're referring to our contributor articles, which you may feel are too pessimistic. Market Currents is our editor-generated short-form news product which covers all the key stories, irrespective of whether they are pessimistic or optimistic.

    Alain, clicking on "Today So Far" turns off auto-refresh. To turn it back on, click on "Latest".

    mare maris pica, as an FYI, we're working on a new portfolio tab which will show Market Current just on your portfolio. I hope it will launch soon.

    vtbob01, Assuming you're talking about the main Market Currents page (http://bit.ly/xy34Z5), the font size is actually the same. Perhaps introducing a headline for each Market Current in bold makes the text below look smaller...

    bbro, thanks for the kind comment. Can you explain more what you mean by "the type of current market data you want to see"?

    Hi Alpine, you can remove stocks from your portfolio by going to any of the portfolio page data pages under the Portfolio tab, such as http://bit.ly/WTl1th, and clicking on the "X" at the end of the line.
