Is it me or is this thing total rubbish?
I had a look this morning during the Sunrise programme on Sky to see if their FTSE Dog was actually live, and accurate... i.e. when the market moves so does the DOG
I checked it with Bloomberg and CNBC who both have live FTSE DOGS, although I think CNBC is the only one to have a live ticker, but anyway, they were both at the same thing as Sky's DOG... so Sky's DOG must be live too.
Later on during a business update on News 24 I checked to see if their DOG was live and up to date... so the DOG was reporting the FTSE 100 was up 6.9 points, over I turned to Bloomberg and CNBC who reporting that it was up 2 points.
I turned back and it was still on 6.9
It remained on 6.9 for about 2 mins before changing to 2 then stayed on 2.
I thought it might have been a tech. fault, as so often happens with graphics, so I checked later and it was still totally wrong!!
This time it was about 20 points out, why bother putting it up if it is reporting totally wrong information!?
