The Indexes are Back

Google_Docs_LogoFor those that look at the BI/DW and On-Demand (or SaaS) Indices, the YTD performances are working again. The indexes both use Google Docs with calls to Google Finance for various stock quotes and metrics. What better way to create an index on On-Demand Software then by using that technology.

Thanks to the Google Docs and Google Finance teams for fixing a bug.

Sometime last week the Google Finance API calls for historical quotes stopped returning any values older than 3 months. I reported the bugs and within a few days the bug was fixed. 

Enjoy the indices. They are for informational purposes only. If you choose to invest in any of these stocks please perform your due diligence (and hope for a bull market to return.)

Suggestions and feedback are welcome on either index. Also if there is a company you feel we should consider please send them along.
