eToro Live Markets, a Google Chrome extension, allows you to follow real-time rates and prices of major currencies (Forex) and commodities, including gold, silver and oil. This extension is great for both trading professionals, as well as for users who want to stay up-to-date with the recent finance and world economy. Some of the major currencies that you will find are USD, GBP, EUR, JPY and more. Rates are displayed in a pop-up along with line charts for the market trends, and you can easily reorder items by drag & drop. Once you’ve installed the extension, simply click the button in the toolbar to view major currency rates along with line charts. Click the tiny button located at the top of the pop-up to view the trend in graphs over a specific time.
The extension also shows users Trader’s Insights, highlighting the popularity of trades. The green bar displays the Buy percentage, whereas the orange bar displays the Sell percentages.
You can also change the settings for the extension, and toggle Show Currencies, Show Commodities and Show Indices options.
There are two flaws to this extension. The first is that it doesn’t quote where it gets its figures from. While the resource itself may be credible, there is no way to edit it and add a different one. This limits the extension to being useful for people in countries whose stock exchanges are supported. Additionally, almost all countries have more than one stock exchange and there is no way of adding them.
The second flaw is that while you can turn off either the stock indexes or the currencies, you can’t selectively remove one of the currencies or the stocks from the list itself. This means there will be clutter in the panel as far users are concerned. Not all currencies and stock information will be relevant for all users and there should be a way of editing them. The commodities tab will perhaps see the most clutter. This simple but useful tool can particularly come in handy for traders and investors.
The extension informs visitors about the current situation in world of Forex, and lets you stay up-to-date with the latest rates/prices of major currencies. With it, you no longer need to search for different currencies/rates on multiple websites. Visit the link below, try it out and let us know what you think.
