  1. does one exist?
     
  2. Funny, I'm trying to do the same because they've got 200+ industry indexes which I'd like to track real-time.

    Here's the software list I am in the process of trying out.

    Realtime DDE from yahoo can be a bit tricky though. Very little to zero support. I'm only interested because of their indexes.
     
  3. You can get a robust DDE feed from Market Feed for $23 dollars a month for 300 symbols... Real Time updates - 3 to 6 quotes every minute per symbol...

    Create your own indexes or follow specific Index symbols... etc...

    I subscribed for about 6 months... worked fine... consider...
     
  4. One program I'm trying right now which seems pretty nice is "XLQ" by www.qmatix.com

    So far it's the best for my purposes.
