Google Finance Gain/Loss Percent Greasemonkey Script

Filed under: Technology — 6:50 pm

One of the things that always bothered me about Google Finance‘s portfolio view is that it doesn’t have a percent value for the amount your portfolio has gained or lost. Yahoo! Finance‘s portfolio view includes this number, and I suppose I got used to checking it there.

So what do we do nowadays when a website doesn’t have something that we want? That’s right, we write a Greasemonkey script for it. I give you:


Enjoy, and let me know if there’s anything I can improve or fix.

    Thanks for the script. I’m having some trouble getting it to work, or noticing what its doing. Does it still do anything? I am guessing google’s changed enough to break it.

    Nope, this has been broken for quite some time now.

    Google now includes the feature I was adding, so you should be all set.
