StockCharts.com does not provide true streaming charts at this time; however, we do provide auto-refreshing charts to members. With “auto-refreshing” charts you have most of the benefits of streaming charts without all the hassles.
Many people confuse the concepts of “streaming” charts and “auto-refreshing” charts. Streaming charts are interactive charts that are created by special software that runs on the user's computer using data from a custom datafeed. True streaming charts require special software and/or plug-ins to be installed on the user's computer before it will work.
Auto-refreshing charts are charts created by our servers that automatically get updated after a specified period of time. Auto-refreshing charts provide most of the benefits of streaming charts without the need for special software or a custom datafeed.
