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?
Toolkit’s intra-day pricing data comes from Yahoo!. We have seen multiple issues with incorrect data from Yahoo and we won’t consider using that service on a new product. Additionally, Yahoo is moving to stop redistribution of the data. Typically, use of the Stock Selection Guide is not so dependent upon daily price fluctuation so this is not a very common request. We’ll take this under advisement and review the costs for adding an intra-day price feed when we next re-quote our data contracts.
As of 2020, we are still keeping our eyes out for a data provider that can provide intra-day data at a price point that works for redistribution in the tools.
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.
