Why would I want to pay for a real-time data plan when you offer free real-time charts?
Our free real-time charts have several important restrictions that may cause you to prefer our real-time data plans instead:
Most US stock orders are executed on the NYSE or Nasdaq exchanges. Only our real-time data plan shows the “official” data for those exchanges.
There is no reliable volume information associated with our free US real-time data bars.
Free real-time charts are only available for popular US stocks. We do not have free real-time data for thinly-traded US stocks or for non-US markets.
