Streaming stock quotes can be accessed by investors in a variety of ways. For example, you may get them from literally hundreds of different websites, watch them on a dedicated "ticker" video display at your stock broker's office, see them as what is called an "onscreen crawl" on television stations devoted to finances as well as some news channels, look at them on your smart cell phone through dedicated and various applications or normal RSS feeds, or you may even have them automatically scrolling on your computer screen through push technology.
For example, CNN/Money has a free streaming stock quote feature that they offer users for free. This same site also contains stock market coverage, business news, financial advice for people, investing advice, and it also helps you calculate things to help with investing. Another site that offers similar features is Yahoo. They have a section called Yahoo! Finance that like CNN/Money, also has streaming stock quotes for free. Yahoo! Finance also has news about finances and business, stock quotes, data and information about the international market, resources to help investors manage their portfolios, and also mortgage rates.
In addition, MSN Money and its co-service MSNBC feature many ways to see streaming quotes on the Web, via phone, and over the air. For people who invest in the stock market, this combo platter of MSN and MSNBC truly offers just about everything anyone could want. Some of these tools include live stock quotes, a stock quote ticker, expert analysis, investment tools and resources, message boards, business and financial news and information, and financial reports. As a bonus, MSN is a name that most people know and trust, and the addition of MSN Money helps brings that trust to the world of investing.
Finally, Google is another website that offers a lot of services for investors. Like the others, it provides many ways of showing and delivering streaming quotes through Google Finance, which contains a wide range of information about stocks, public and private companies, mutual funds, as well as the Google Android cell phone platform, which utilizes a stock application in its basic software package.
