How can we improve Yahoo Finance?

Please either fix or get rid of the "Trade Column you added to 'My Portfolio' Now, copy &paste of the stock results is a messa mess

You added a 'Trade Column" to the My Portfolio' stock results that is copied when one tries to copy daily stock results in a Portfolio. This prevents simply copying and pasting results into my excel spreadsheets and makes you site largely unusable for following stock prices. Try it and you will see. Please fix or deleted the addition columen ('Trade) from the default portfolio lists.

    Please adjust the new form of MY Portfolio so that a copy and paste of price and % change results in a list of equities without the added space (cell) between each entry. Otherwise, we have to export the file, insert a formula for the % change in a new file to calculate the daily change before copying. Then I have to delete the file created. The alternative is worse - manually delete each cell between the assets. Before you added the trade button, this did not happen. Pleas fix this because i adds a lot of work.

    OK, thanks for getting rid of "trade" entry in the list of portfolios assets, but now, when I copy and paste, the output adds a cell below each asset causing me to have to delete the intervening cell before I can copy the portfolio into my spreadsheet. Please fix this so that a simple copy and paste will deliver a list of the stocks and results, one above another without any cells added below/between each asset results. Thanks in advance. Tom

    Will you ever get to this so I can resume coping and pasting stock prices and % change from my portfolio to my spreadsheets? It takes at least 3 times as long to export and % change is always different from your results because your export results do not provide prior day closing prices. Please!!

    Stop adding an empty watch list to my portfolios please. I do not need a
    "My watchlist" for each device I use. I have one account and use the same lists for all devices.
    Also please move the (My Lists + ) on the mobile application. Please move to above "My holdings" line, or move to bellow all my existing portfolios.

    Could you at least tell us if you are going to eve make a change to "My Portfolios" to restore the ability to copy and paste without copying the word "trade"?

    This was intentional, wasn't it? You don't want people to be able to copy and paste, you don't want people to be able to use the information you give, just look at it on the screen.

    Can you make a change so the word "trade" on the portfolios is not coped when one copies and pastes the portfolio results into an excel spreadsheet? PLEASE?

    You already have a buy/sell routing availablewhen you click on a stock to bring up its summary page. Get rid of the trade option on the My Portfolio page page because it complicates simple cut and paste entry into spreadsheets. I would want to look at a stocks summary page anyway before executing trades, so the trade button/routine on the My Portfolio matrix is unnecessary/redundant and complicates tracking my stocks

    Remove that "Trade" button from my custom 'My Watchlist'. It is useless and it interferes with the simple copy/paste I do daily. I would NEVER link my brokerage up to Yahoo! anyway.

    Or at least give us options to customize Exporting data to a spreadsheet. This trade button is awful...you guys are making an already painful process even more painful for folks who want to transport their portfolios to a spreadsheet.

    Remove the "TRADE" button from the notes section. It gets in the way. Have an option to not select that button.

    The 'TRADE' icon appears in my Notes column overlapping my notes! Please advise as to when this error will be fixed. Thank u

    Yahoo, your "Trade" icon is stepping all over my portfolio Notes column. Please remove the "Trade" button. I have no interest. And I cannot remove it by Editing MyView.

    Please stop trying to improve your product. The "Trade" button is a disaster. Take a break, guys!

    I can live with "Trade" being there, but I cannot live with it displaying in the middle of my notes. Am using Windows 7 and Firefox on desktop PC.

    Why was "Trade" added at the end of each line of data in "My Portfolio?" When I export the data to my Excel spreadsheet now, "Trade" is loaded on a separate line and it messes up the alignment in my spreadsheet. I suggest you set things up so either a) the "Trade" column can be deleted or b) "Trade" continues the line of data for a stock instead of creating a new line when exported to Excel.
