Can anyone recommend a data provider system that gives the user most (or all) of the major indexes (S&P, Russell, etc) trailing returns in real time? Specifically, I want - performance MTD, YTD, 12 month, 3 Year, 5 Year, 10 year.

What the hell are you doing out there in booty-bandit land? I don't even have real-time stock quotes and I'm doing fine.

A bloomberg terminal is a bit overkill. There has to be something in between a bloomberg and the newspaper...

I have a feeling that my clients are a bit more affluent and sophisticated than yours.

It seems to me that all you have to do is get a program that will feed real time quotes into an Excel spreadsheet. (you can easily set up the spreadsheet yourself)

When I was a trader, I used Tradestation, and that did the trick.

What kind of POS firm do you work for that you don't even have real time quotes? Do you even have a chair?

I own the firm and it's a heterosexual firm. I have an $1100 Herman Miller chair. Very comfortable and the farts go right through the bottom of the chair.

He doesn't need live quotes when he slams everyone into a Variable Annuity.

True. I WISH I could slam everyone into a VA, but some people just don't need them.

Why the hell do you need Real Time historical data? That's almost an oxymoron! It's historical data, why isn't last night's close close enough? Do you really think that an intraday spike is going to change the 10 year number? Or even the MTD average?


S&P Marketscope ought to be able to give you LNC info at worst, probably hourly nums.

Apparently you and I manage money differently. Two advisors that manage money differently? What a shock!

Bill and Hillary Clinton are the only one's who distribute real-time historical data.

I just asked you why smegma breath, no need to get so testy!


I can not imagine a scenario where the 10 average return on the S&P is going to be made different within one day within the hours of one day.


How many hours are there in the 10 moving average of the S&P 500? 6.5 hours times say 260 days times 10 = 16,900. With nearly 17,000 data points 1 data point in particular would have to show a deviation from the norm by like 8,500%.  If the normal variation in one hour is 1/100 of 1% then the market would havre to jump by 85% in one hour for that hour to alter the 10 year moving average.


If there's a way to make money on the miniscule variations a real time S&P Total Return YTD then I'd like to hear about it.


This should be good!

"Smegma Breath?" I think you have me confused with your mom.


I'm not being testy. You ask a legitimate question, but he way you asked it prompted something other than a response full of smiley faces and hearts. Given the recently lowered standards on this board, I think that my response was pretty curteous.


By and large, the advantage of having the data "real time" would not be significant on a long term basis (the ten year period you've described), but having month to date, week to date is valuable to get an idea of where the market is moving recently. Most applications seem to provide the data on a monthly basis, but nothing more recent.


Also, while you can get daily data from the newspaper for the major indexes, that data isn't available for more obscure ones.


Finally, if you trade index options on futures, I could see where it would be valuable. But if you did that, you'd probably have a Bloomberg terminal.


I basically found what I needed from Morningstar's Advisor workstation. It provides trailing performance for a huge number of indices as of yesterday's close. Reuters provides it in "real time".

You guys crack me up.  I go to www.bigcharts.com and click on historical quotes.  I then type in a date 10 years ago and write it down on paper.  Then I look at where the S&P is, and write that down on paper.  Then I take the number it is now, and subtract the number 10 years ago.  I then divide that number by the one 10 years ago.  It works pretty well.  Since I am in the pacific time zone, I do it at 6:30 am, 6:35, 6:40, 6:45, 6:50, 6:55, 7:00, 7:05..........12:00 pm, 12:05, 12:10, 12:15, 12:20, 12:25, 12:30, 12:35, 12:45, 12:50, 12:55, and finally 1:00.  I gets me pretty close to real time without paying for it. 


Anyone else see why I have trouble finding time to cold call?
