Good list of alternatives to Google Finance was posted here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/financialindep ... eature_is/
I would personally pick something that lets you store your data on your computer and I would not trust any websites. Too many changes are happening right now - Yahoo Finance recently changed how their data is accessed, etc.

So with Google portfolio apparently coming to an end soon, what're the other similar or better free alternatives?
I have a bunch of "portfolio" on Google Finance, including particular trading/investing, and a whole bunch of different watchlists.

I use Google sheets to build my own portfolio. Prices are tracked via Google Finance, which will continue to exist. The spreadsheet on the Performance menu of my website is one example of how to customize it.

Here is a list of other alternatives to manage your portfolio:

- JStock (Desktop) - A free Java-based software program to keep an eye on your portfolio. It supports alerts, watchlists, charts, and news among other things.

- MSN Money (Online) - Portfolio manager by MSN. Manage your portfolio online or on Windows 10 devices.

- MyStock Portfolio and Widget (Android) - Free app to manage one or multiple portfolios on Android devices. Features real-time quotes, currency conversion, charts, market news and more.

- Ticker Stock Portfolio Manager (iOS) - Manage one or multiple portfolios on iOS devices. Supports notifications and more. Includes subscription upgrades.

- Yahoo Finance Portfolios (Online) - This requires a Yahoo account. You can track performance of stocks in real-time, and get news and other information related to your symbols.

Very puzzled as to why they are ending this function.

I think they might have a new function though. How can google compete with others without a portfolio tracking function.

There's a couple of suggestions over on Reddit.

Sharesight portfolio tracker looks good but is 'freemium' not free.

Wealthica is interesting but not strictly a portfolio tracker so might not do what you want.

I thought a new version of Google Finance is coming out soon. Their graph drawing is the easiest out there.

I was looking for a free (and ads-free), similarly simple and functional portfolio tracker, with optional advanced features and ended up going with Wallmine portfolios. I'm very happy with the service.

Yahoo Finance was the first alternative on the list for me as well but their reliability is sad at times. There are some very good alternative tools depending on whether you're looking for just a portfolio tracker or more of a wholesome services as Google Finance. I've been very happy with Wallmine Portfolios as they exactly fit the expectations of a Google Finance replacement.

I switched to AlphaTracker. Not nearly as intuitive originally as Google Finance, but once you get used to it - it's quite good. Good support too!

I actually ended up using morningstar.ca to track my portfolios. Fairly simple and straightforward.
