At long last, real-time stock quotes are here

by Volker Weber

We're very excited to tell you that real-time quotes on NASDAQ securities are now available on Google Finance. This is an important (and way overdue) development for everyone who consumes financial information. Historically, real-time stock data was not freely and widely accessible. Either buried behind subscription walls or brokerage sites, consumers typically had to live with 15 or 20 minute price delays. In the world of finance, time is indeed money, and it's critical to have timely and accurate data.

Google is poaching in Reuters and Bloomberg areas. We'll see if this changes the politics and pricing in the realtime information market.
