How to Get Real Time Stock Data


Getting real-time stock data provides professional traders with an advantage, and enables even casual investors the chance to track their portfolios as the market unfolds. A number of Websites offer these services with a paid subscription. However, Websites like Yahoo! Finance and MSN Money do not require any subscription to view real-time stock data from the major markets.

Things You'll Need

  • Internet connection

Accessing Real Time Stock Data

  • Launch an Internet browser and navigate to Yahoo! Finance or Money Central.

  • Enter the selected website and look for the "get quote" field.

  • Enter the name or stock symbol of the desired company and press the "Get Quote" button.

  • Look for the real-time quote. This is found directly below the name of the company on both of the above Websites.

  • Take note of the data for later use.

Tips & Warnings

  • Neither website requires any type of sign up or log in to access the real-time data. Both have extensive information available on each stock.
