I'm using Telechart but I need a reliable and cheap source of real-time intraday data, preferably a simple online charting service. I usually trade end-of-day but would like to keep a more watchful eye on events as the days unfold in these turbulent markets. Thanks. Very Happy

Over the past year I have tried several charting packages, and finally settled with TC2000 and Prophet.net.

This month my Prophet is up for renewal and I have decided to stay with them. I am currently a Bronze subscriber which has a 20 minute delay, but considering realtime as a Silver member.

The stock screening is not to my liking, but I was told they are working on many changes for this summer to help improve the program. Working with TC2000 has been a good match as I can scan in TC2000, then export a Text file of file names to add to Prophet using cut and paste. Together it is a good match.

The charts are also pretty good and I like the Marketmatrix feature. It takes a little time to get used to, like any program, but I feel well worth the money.

There are several other features I like with Prophet, but too numerous to mention here. Maybe give a trial subscription as it will take about one month to get used to it.

Hope this helps Very Happy

Thanks, Hawk! Actually what I'm looking for is a chart that can display candles with a minimum of 1 minute data delay with an option to zoom out to say 2 minute, 3 minute, 5 minute, half hour, hour etc. After getting frosted a few times here lately, I feel the need to take an occasional peek intraday while at work to see how things are going in the event the markets turn on a dime and go south of my positions. I'll investigate that Prophet thing though. Wink

I use optionsxpress (java charts). I have an intraday setup. You can sigh up and no funds are required. Thats how I traded for the first year using there vitrual trading platform.

Even though position trade. I use a 2 day 5 minute chart to enter my trades.

You are right CH but I think there free site does not have all the indicators and the ability to setup watchlist, unless you pay a monthly fee.

I guess I was suggesting it because I have been using them for sometime now and they have no setup or monthly fees for using there charts.

Prophet also has a free setup, but limited in the number of watchlists, etc and with a 20 minute delay. Options express is probably delayed also.

OX has realtime and streaming for just sighing up. I have been with them for about 4 years now.

There fees to trade options are ok, but there service is great.

Hope that helps.

I have been with Ameritrade for several years. The real time information I use is on a screen that I can put in up to 20 stocks at least. I have six different screens. Any stock I want to follow I put in. This is a service for all apex clients. I think you have to trade at least 4 times a month which is nothing for anyone that trades all the time. I pay nothing extra. When I get readly to buy or sell I watch every tick. Good luck. In a market like this you need it. I am looking forward to when this thing turns around. I expect to do very well after we finally bottom out.
