REVIEW: Market Stream Live
Are you a Financial Planner, stock broker, or just ALWAYS have to be connected to the markets throughout the world? Well if so, Market Stream Live is for you!
I have used many of the stock trackers out there. All of them have been on a minimum 15 minute delay. If you're lucky, and it's "really" accurate. Not a big deal if you're a casual market enthusiast, or just like to see how your investments are doing occasionally during the day.
MarketStream Live is very different. It offers REAL TIME market streams from over 30 financial exchanges across the globe. Equities, Foreign Exchange, Commodities, Futures are just some of the markets you can access.
1) Customize, Customize, Customize! Whether you want to follow the DJIA, NASD, or any individual stock, you can change the way, as well as WHAT you want to view. Want the current price along with the daily high/low? No problem. Oh and did I mention, streamed in genuine real time??? Want to know the number of shares traded that day or the % +/- for the day? Sure thing! over 20 different categories to customize what YOU want!
2) Alerts! Want to sell if a stock reaches or declines to a certain level? You can set each stock, or market to alert you when a stock hits a certain price. Or set it up to alert you if your stock(s) go up or down a certain $ or % amount. Very nice feature!
3) Quick, real time quote. Just plug in the instrument code for the given stock and get an instant, real time quote! Its amazing to sit there and watch the DJIA move up and down, as if you're watching it live on tv!
Cons: Only works if you're on a BES
Price: Unless you're an executive or in the financial world for your business, you have large amounts of disposable income, or are simply a market addict, the price will be prohibitive for most. Basic Service runs 55 British Pounds/ Month, with a one year agreement. That just about $110 with the exchange rate. But it's a drop in the bucket for those people in the market.
Verdict: Amazing application, EASY setup. I love how you can truly customize what information you get, can be alerted to it, and have it in real time. If you need to be in touch, and you tote a Blackberry, this application is most definitely a MUST HAVE!!! I have attempted several "streaming" applications, from music to video. This is very accurate, and at no time during my 2 week trial, did I have a service interruption!
Overall rating : 5/5!!!

Great review... Thanks Todd!

By the way if you're interested, get the trial. Screenshots can't do the streaming quotes justice!
Does it work with BIS-B? Still can't find a market quote streamer compatible :-(
No it doesn't. Edited original post. Sorry!
This looks really neat ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

You almost had me at hello !
Actually I was thinking, if someone was willing to spend 110 smackers on this per month, just get a hosted BES from Exchangemymail or others? I think you can do that for like $10 a month nowadays. I used to spend 20 before I got on my company BES. Just a thought.
