The loonie's been on a tear in recent weeks. No wonder, then, that we've been getting emails every day asking where you can find a quote for that surging Canadian dollar.

Here's the easiest way to find a chart and a quote: Look for the tab on the Market Spotlight box that says Dollar.

If you look at the Market Spotlight box, you'll see the names of different stock indexes as well as oil on the tabs across the top. There's an orange chevron to the right of these that helps you scroll through even more tabs.

If you click on the chevron, you can see the tabs for gold and the elusive dollar as well.

And when you click on the dollar tab, it should pull up a quote for the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar as well as a chart. You can customize the date range on the graph to see how the loonie's done over the past day, the past five days and the past year.

You can also check out our tutorial for more information on how it works, and what you can do with it.

We're also working on a design for a more sophisticated quote page, but there are still a few bugs to be ironed out. To give you an idea of what's to come, here's an early design reference for the Currencies section under markets, including Canadian and U.S. quotes for the major currencies and a full cross table.

At the moment, we are still concentrating on the foundation of the Beta site and addressing the performance issues that you've no doubt noticed, but new pages like the one above and a lot of other new features are on their way.
