    How much detail do you need?

    Yahoo and Google both have good finance sites.

    Otherwise, have a look at Incredible Charts

    Yahoo one is great. Thanks Sim !

    Another one for ya ... do you know how to default Yahoo to go to the US site instead of the Australian one ? Each time I open my browser and type yahoo.com it re-directs to au.yahoo.com

    I used to use Yahoo, but it's awful compared to Google. I only just started using the Google one though as I didn't realise they catered to the Aussie market until just now.

    Google Finance

    You need to put "ASX:" in front of the stock symbol in the search to get Aussie stuff. For example, if you wanna look at info for Coca Cola Amatil, you need to type in ASX:CCL to get the right page.

    If you wanna check the ASX/200, just type that in the search and a list of options will come up and just pick the one you want.
