Stock Market Investing and Trading News Website

I had an idea for creating a website for stock market investors and traders which provide really easy and fast access to stocks related news. First I created some limited site for myself only, but then I released that other people will also benefit it. Then I imported a large stocks/ETFs/Funds database and put the site online.

Website URL: http://stockshoot.com
Platform: Joomla 1.0.13
Additional Extensions (Components, Modules, Plug ins): Alphacontent, PageCache (not active), FireBoard and JV-LinkExchanger BE components, MyLinks (this was the most critical component I needed. I couldn't put my website publicly online without this litte component, it currently have some malfunction with IE. I even asked help from this forum: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,203266.0.html ).

Custom Development: Internal database cript and feeds organizer.

Additional Comments: I thought that I also install Community Builder, but then I abandoned this idea. This component is really great, but I don't need such an extended functionality.

Awesome integration of modules and components! The template could use some sprucing up though as it is a bit on the minimalist side but I guess that's whats needed most when it comes to financial service-related sites. All in all, I love the integration of different Joomla extensions.

As stated by Raymond, you did a great job putting together your modules.

I would say that your header really needs to be awesome.  Perhaps enlist a graphic designer to create one for you.

Very functional site. I would just use greens from the same palette for the logo and the headers. The logo color saturation is too high.

If I remember correctly then there is a option in Alphacontent for showing it in all pages or what do you mean ?

I have got some drawbacks from my site because I had to uninstall one of the most important component: MyLinks component. Because the coponent is not actively developed anymore and I got an message that the method I used for getting this component working is highly insecure, so I had to uninstall it. For more information: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,203266.0.html

I also updated Fireboard to the latest realase 1.0.4

Thank you all for the the feedback. I tried to do something with my template and logo. The current logo is designed to be lightweight and efficient and it works both smaller and higher resolutions. I tried to search a better template, but I failed. Its too difficult to find such a lihghtweight and good looking template.

The world derivatives market has been estimated at about $480 trillion face or nominal value, 12 times the size of the entire world economy. The value of the derivatives market, because it is stated in terms of notional values, cannot be directly compared to a stock or a fixed income security, which traditionally refers to an actual value. Many such relatively illiquid securities are valued as marked to model, rather than an actual market price.
