Leaked: Google Finance for Canada to launch July 31

July 27, 2007, 1:39 PM UTC

Google (GOOG) let the cat out of the bag a little too soon on its Canadian Google Finance announcement. A post at the Official Google Blog that went up at 12:05 p.m. PST on Friday was titled, “Now there’s Google Finance for Canada”. Dion Loy, a Google Finance engineer, appears to have updated that post, saying, “Oops. We hit the button too soon. Watch for news about Google Finance in Canada next Tuesday.”

Google Finance has thus far been a distant competitor to the dominant Yahoo Finance (YHOO).
