MarketWatch Updating Tickers in Articles

Email  Print Print  

I have no idea how long it’s been going on (less than a week I would think) but if you read any MarketWatch articles, you’ll notice that the quotes now update dynamically! I was reading this article about Google (and other dot-coms) and if you look, the quotes update! It’ll flash a light red if it went down and a light green if it went up. Also, if you hover over the ticker, it’ll pop up a little window giving you all sorts of useful data as if you just pulled up a quote. Very nice new features.

    looks like Ajax?

    Not real-time though, so its kinda annoying have delayed quotes. Of course, an investor shouldn’t really care about day to day movements in the first place.

    Yeah, looks like AJAX.

    While not real time, I hate reading a news article written a few hours ago, seeing a price, and then having to go check the ticker to see what it’s sitting at now. It’s a definite improvement.

    I honestly don’t understand what’s so hard about “real-time” quotes, Yahoo provides them for free anyway (you just have to click another link for it). Even a minute old quote is better than TWENTY minutes.
