Stock QuotesStock quotes are the highest price a potential buyer is willing to pay for a stock and the lowest price a potential seller is willing to receive. This is similar to the bid-ask spread, but the stock quote refers to the prices themselves, rather than the difference between them.
Stocks used to be quoted in fractions, but now most exchanges use decimals. Stock quotes are either in real-time or delayed.
The stock market quote, which you can find in the daily newspaper or online, is the most basic collection of numbers that providers update on a regular basis.
You can follow stock quotes during the trading day and watch them change from minute to minute or second to second, depending on your level of interest.
The Internet offers a wealth of information that is quick and convenient. Stock quotes are easy to get from a number of sources- You should be aware that the numbers you see on most free Internet sites are delayed. For example, data providers delay NASDAQ quotes 15 minutes and NYSE quotes 20 minutes.
Why should investors care about real time stock quotes? Delays in last sale prices can result in missed opportunities and lost profits. While many financial sites offer stock quotes with a delay of 15-20 minutes, at QuoteDaddy.com you can follow OTC, NASDAQ, NYSE or AMEX stocks in real-time from the source in an easy to use format, from any computer!
