We’ve now launched the first stage of our comprehensive NZX data offering. This means our popular markets page looks a little different, with new 20-minute delayed information on every New Zealand stock. Thanks to Sharesies for sponsoring this. 

Each stock on the NZX also now has its own company page, which you can access by clicking on a stock ticker or company name in the main board. For example, the Fletcher Building page is here.

All things being equal, we’ll submit our iPhone app to Apple today, and that should be live in a week or so. In about six weeks, we’ll also have an Android app.

There is no additional charge for subscribers to use these apps.

The next stage of the markets package will see us add intraday prices plus a lot more data on the companies pages for each listed entity.

The app has been built to keep you up to date on the go, with our latest news and commentary, our Happening Now newsfeed, markets info and content from The Life, because none of us is all about business.

These are two important advances to us, but we have more planned for the year ahead with additional staff and columnists, site improvements and continual refinement of everything we do.

That’s all possible thanks to your subscription. Please feel free to guilt trip as many friends as you can into subscribing. 

As always, we value your suggestions for improving what we do.
