NSE Introduces a Cool “Stock Watch” Feature

A neat new feature on the NSE home page is the Stock Watch feature:

It shows you all stocks in some indices (Nifty, Junior Nifty, CNX IT, BankNifty and Nifty Midcap 50) with intraday mini charts, trade details, and monthly/weekly movements. It even marks stocks close to 52 week highs/lows, and shows stocks with corporate actions with a little icon. One missing is sortable columns; the other, and potentially major pain point is that they don’t adjust the mini-charts for bonuses and splits – note the little bump down in the Reliance Stock in the mini chart, around November; that didn’t happen, it was a 1:1 bonus.

The NSE Site has been rapidly improving and I’m watching closely. But they are staying IE only for some of the features like TAME-Lite and Market Maps, which is quite unfortunate.

Update: Alert reader Saravanan Jayachandran points out that some columns are indeed sortable – like “% Change today”, “Symbol” and “365 days % change”, though it could be more intuitive. (Thanks!)

    >Sorting is present on specific columns. Mouse over on the column headers to see them in blue-colored text. (Could be more intuitive by adding up/down icons.)

    >Hi Deepak,
    India debt rating is BBB- which is equivalent of Iceland. Iceland is broken during the credit collapse. Is India that bad? Does it mean, it is safe to keep money in Dollars rather than converting into INR. What can we infer from this rating?

  • Deepak Shenoy says:

    >Thanks Saravanan! Have changed the post accordingly.

    Ramaiah: Thanks for that question, will answer in a separate post.
