Timely Stock price data feed
Currently I can get accurate closing prices and updates using TK but not the SSG+ which is a whole day behind. Can this timeliness be improved?
Changed from ‘under review’ to ‘no status’ as we have no current plans to pursue intra-day pricing. In our review so far we have not discovered a service that will provide intra-day pricing without raising our data services costs dramatically. This issue is being kept open for voting.
Manually updating daily pricing for my SSG's with over 100 stock studies is not pragmatic, and time consuming. Also in this day and age where daily stock pricing is so extreme due to trading algorithms, BI is doing all it membership a major disservice by not even allowing those members who have the means to purchase the pricing option. Bad Choice on the part of NAIC....
As a workaround, you can manually update the price using the Data, 'Company Basic Data' panel in both CoreSSG and SSGPlus
Since Verizon bought out Yahoo!, Verizon has eliminated the free 15 minutes delay price updates for all exchange listed stocks.
TK6 users are no longer able to update daily pricing for stocks in their portfolios. We have to wait 24 hours to get the Prior Day's pricing.
This is not acceptable. I have called BI and made the request for them to start looking for an alternative. I have even made several third party vendor suggestions.
Yes, these third party vendors will charge a fee. But, I also suggested to BI that any additional fees for data could be passed on to the users. The users would then have the flexibility to pay for the 15 minute delayed pricing or not. But, at least BI users of TK6 would have the option to do so.
IMHO, having to wait 24 hours for yesterdays pricing is unacceptable.
And, by the way, this 24 hour delay is not only affect TK6; but, also (I believe) the SSG Core and SSG Plus.
