    Well, sort of. I'm not interested in any free trials from a news vendor, but I am willing to maintain some sort of account minimum (no more than $5k though) at a discount broker just so that I may get free streaming news. It may be too much to ask but I thought I'd give it a try here at Elite.

    Any input?

    I think Scottrade has a $500 minimum and provides free Dow Jones streaming news.

    I have it but it's not that great. I'm not sure if it's the problem on the Scottrade's side or DJ news just doesn't cover a whole lot comparing to Reuters or Bloomberg. Thanks anyway, though.

    The news ticker on marketwatch is live and dynamic.

    I watch bloomberg and as soon as something is releases its mentioned on bloomberg and is displayed on the ticker roughly at the same time. Not all news is listed here though.

    Another one is seeking alpha

    http://seekingalpha.com/news/market_currents?source=headtabs

    Autoupdates itself every few minutes. Very similar to briefing.com inplay.

    What I like is that it shows actual vs estimates. Again not all news is displayed.
