I had a student ask me whether he could download anything think that resembles a market browser or like the workstations they have at the wirehouses. He wants to be able to see a list of stocks change and have news flashes. Just thought I would ask the pros on this board first. Thanks

He needs to subscribe to a service that provides real time quotes, and he needs software that will take those quotes and chart them.  The best I have used for both requirements is "Tradestation."

However, this stuff isn't cheap, and I doubt anyone would choose to spend the money for it unless they were professional traders.

Try Googling "real time quotes" and see what pops up.

The easiest way to get what your looking for is to take $50 bucks, or whatever, and head over to a Scottrade office.  They have a great tool that provides real time multiple quotes, tracks indicies, etc.  It is free with the account, and your money will simply sit in the account and earn interest.
