Black Swan Out of whack quotes from Marketwatch and google has already gone dogs! Marketwatch is showing two different prices on two machines. Guess I have to use Fidelity like BD. Anyone has the same problem?

ISA_Coder yahoo shows a real time quote but it does not show when the window is minimized in the task bar (shows the delayed price in the taskbar).
So i've been using scottrade since i have to un-minimize the window now no matter what i do

luck2011 I have been using CNBC for real time quote. But, the only issue I see is that I cannot create a portfolio. Can anyone guide me on this :)

shazee What do you mean real time?
Even Scottrade has 15 mins delay in their quotes. freestockcharts.com provides real quotes for $100/month. I am not sure if they are telling the truth.
They have a platform called platnium TC 2000 version/ $100 month.
Even their gold version TC2000 has 15 mins delay.

Are you referring to non-members?
I get real time quotes from scottrade right from the main home page after i log in.

HeidiTwit I'm using Blue on android for $2 each exchange per month. Don't know if there is an iOS app. It's realtime.

ISA_Coder looks like CNBC is the new winner for me to use while at work, seems to show the real time price in the header of the window (viewable when minimized to task bar), just like google used to do in real time.

shazee ISA,
Everything comes from GS to brokers servers first. If you read in fineprint, there is always 15 mins delay. Scottradelite might have slight faster qoutes than scottrade stream.
As far as I understood, there is not such real time quotes unless the server is connected to GS server directly.

Black Swan Thanks guys. Will check out Scottradelite. CNBC doesn't have a live chart. That was something I really liked in google finance.
