  2. I also use Yahoo Finance. Unfortunately there is no alternative.

    When Verizon bought Yahoo, cookies and crump were instituted. Brace for additional hurdles in the near future.

    No alternatives to do what?

    If they show charts in interactive form (not image), data can be downloaded. They can disable download button, but that doesn't mean data can't be downloaded in some other way.
    However, I don't think some obscure download button is their nr. 1 priority after buying Yahoo.

    • Stock quotes
    • Option quotes
    • Option chains
    Yahoo Finance has the best layout, especially for the option chains. I would guess that 99% of ET'ers on these forums go to Yahoo Finance first while they are setting up a stock or option trade.

    If you know of a good alternative to Yahoo Finance please post it.

    Mmmmm, ok, was going to suggest Googlefinance but regarding Options, that I don't think GF do, don't know as it's not my field.
    But for stocks, GF works for me, delayed data and can be slightly buggy at times but generally over a weekend when that happens.
