Hey all,

I know many of you are fee-based financial planners and don't do a lot of individual stock quotes, but our practice is still pretty heavily transactional.

For those that do a fair amount of stocks and options, what quote services do you use?

Currently working with Thompson ILX and it's great but is not available to indys at a reasonable cost.

We've looked at E-Signal and Quodd.  Anyone have any other suggestions?

How much do you pay?  How much do most services cost?

Nov 17, 2008 11:56 am

Still an employee rep so not paying anything now.  E-Sig will run about $270 per month and Quodd about $250.  Thinking there has to be other real time stock and option quotes services that aren't as expensive.

Who do you clear your trades through?  Do they not have a service you can link into?

It took me a while, but I found the Slam-Dunk answer. It's called "Quotestream". It's an internet driven service that provides eal-time quotes (equity and option), charts, news, etc. Quite similar features of ILX. I pay $25.month, and, did I mention that it includes the same features on your smart-phone?
 Check out quotestream.com if you want to learn more. I love it.

Do you do that much stock business where you need a quote service?  What are the advantages(other than being a tad bit quicker) on why you would spend the money.

About 60% of our business is still stock transactions.  Moving away from that, but as of now, we still need it.

So....you lied to quotestream about being a professional to get the rates for private individuals? How pathetic of you.

If I could get quotes for $25/month, without committing FRAUD against all of the exchanges, like YHWY, I wouldn't mind having them just for kicks.

Your in business I wouldn't skimp on the tools. bite the bullet and get E-Signal. I would use it if I could at legacy AGE. If you're the kind that wants to code a bit tradestation is great and easy language is simple boolian logic.

Many of our clients are traders and need accurate stock quotes, we do a fairly high volume of options as well, and every cent counts with options.
 
Currently in a free trial with E-Signal, its great but going to be expensive at $270/mo.

ThomsonOne is $160 a month. For what it can do it's a bargain. and yes, I'm an Indy.

Quotestream Professional offered by QuoteMedia is a fantastic provider of realtime quotes.  My firm offers their Quotestream Professional product to our RIA's for $25/month excluding exchange fees.  They are worth investigating.

Already did.  We ended up going with Quodd.  $200/month all in.  Best deal we could find and it pretty good - quotes, charts, research, company info, option chains, plus more stuff that we haven't figured out yet.

I use Thomson One and pay $164 a month.  It's the same system I had when I was at a wirehouse and has everything you would need. The firm I'm with now offers QUODD Equity+ for $50 a month.

 
Anyone use QUODD Equity+ and knows how it compares to Thomson One?
