What is the Finance application and how do I use it in Windows 8?

The Finance application allows the user to quickly view the key market using live tiles. It also allows the user to read the current day events and also provides colorful charts for a quick overview.

From Start screen, launch Charms by placing the cursor on the top right or bottom right hand corner.
Select Search.
Select Finance.

The Finance application is launched. You can view the current situation with DOW, S&P, NASDAQ, and Russell 2000.
 Scrolling to the right provides tiles to view such as Watchlist.

Selecting a specific company allows you to view the current finance situation.
Example: Selecting Microsoft Corporation enables you to view detailed information such as Key Statistics and the Company Profile.
