    If someone just wanted to get real-time quotes on the major world equity indices, their associated futures, gold, silver what is the cheapest most bare-bones service/way to accomplish that? Thank you for the advice...
  2. Just open an account at IB with the min and pay $10 for real time data. It's very cheap and mostly reliable, although their historical backfill I found unacceptable used in conjunction with Sierra Charts. Good luck.

    Thank you, good suggestion.
  4. Sure, no problem. Or for futures only open a transact accnt with Sierra Charts.
