    Thanks Tom - it's been a lot of hard work getting to this point, and when I look at my to-do list for new features ... it looks like I'm not going to be getting much sleep for a while yet !!

    Yeah ... but if I don't start making some money soon, my wife is going to make me go and get a "real job" :eek:

    Dont the google ads make you rich? I have no idea how much google ads gives back

    Anyway Ive just registered for compared fundsI
    I didnt realise you could compare funds graphs just by registering!
    though the title of the website gives u that
    I must have missed when you activated the comparison feature

    Love it
    Its fantastic and really this is what investors want

    How does one post graphs on invested? - will posting a link work even though im logged in

    Whats the chance of getting DFA funds added to the list?

    Just copy and paste the "BB Code" provided on the page on Compare Funds - the forum software should take care of the rest.

    Not unless they provide full historic unit price details (which they don't) plus full details of all distributions on their website :(

    Not unless you have a lot of traffic - those adverts cover my hosting costs, but that's about it.

    The site needs to have a lot more traffic before I can start looking at other forms of advertising - it's still too new for that yet.

    DFA prices and distributions are available
    Tho for prices is not on one page and you have to click through for different dates which would make mining of data more difficult but not impossible

    Ahh - I see what they've done. What a strange way to display their data - it would make far more sense to display all data for each individual fund rather than all funds for each individual date.

    Okay - I'll put it on the "possible" list - it will be a while before I can get to it ... and yes, the data mining will be difficult (especially getting all the historic data), but less so for updates.

    Now if I could just afford to get a data feed from Morningstar, I'd be set - one data import routine and I've got 20,000+ funds covered :rolleyes:
