I don't know if I am posting this to the right borad or not since I am new but here goes. When I access a certain stock under quotes/Data there is either a happy face or a frowning face. Can you tell me what these mean and where they come from?

Hi Allison,

Even though it's been a few days, I'm not sure if you've had your question answered yet, so let me take a stab at it.

In the Quotes/Data and My Portfolio sections a stock that has gone up for the day will have a green smiley face next to it, a stock that has gone down - a red frowning face. For a stock whose price is unchanged, there will be an orange neutral face. Think of the faces as friendly, foolish, easy-to-read-at-a-glance indicators of change.

If you have other questions about the Quotes/Data area, you can ask them over at our Quotes/Data message board

Hope this helps,
