Full Version: Live Stock Quote/chart Application?

Hi all,

I need to have access to a live stock chart/quote service like the one at alphatrade.com

Is there any way to have live feed from US / Euro Stock Exchanges?

Opera would do if it supported the website I use, www.alphatrade.com sad.gif

any ideas / thoughts?

thanks a lot!

Opie-today has a stock-ticker applet, I don't know whether this is the kind of thing you're after.

I've never used it, but the source is simple enough, so if it doesn't do what you want you could just change it yourself.

Uhm, that would be Java then, not JavaScript -- what alphatrade.com are offering (AFAIK) is a Java applet that will give you access to the information they're selling. Then again for all I know, the newer Zaurus models do not provide a Java implementation. And while you could probably install one, it still might not work -- the Alphatrade applet is checking which VM it's running on and either tweaks its code accordingly or simply denies working with 'unsupported' VMs.

I could start their applet on the Z, but it just sat there with an empty window after informing me that the vendor 'http://www.insignia.com/' was unknown. Seems they are checking the java.vendor.url and expect it to be one of http://java.sun.com/ http://www.microsoft.com/ http://apple.com/ or http://www.apple.com/java/ ...

So it doesn't look good. Are you specifically looking for a realtime service or just one of the free delayed ones?

Best regards,
Chris.

Thank you so much for the insight, Chris! So, if there is not a realtime one available,
any service would be just fine!

Do you have a specific one with delay in mind?

Im particularly interested in OTC-BB Stock and Frankfurt Stock Exchanges! (Symbols AGNM.OB + AGNM.F at least!)

Thanks again wink.gif

I'm afraid not, that whole stock market thing is beyond me ... rolleyes.gif

I was just asking since there seem to be a lot of sites around that provide non-realtime quotes that can be accessed easily with a regular browser and thus work fine with opera (things like MSN Money come to mind). Obviously if you're a heavy (or, God forbid, a professional blink.gif) trader, this will not suffice.

And of course apart from finding a compatible service (AFAIK Accutrade explicitly offers Zaurus support), there's always the possibility of reverse-engineering the protocols used and hacking up your own application laugh.gif (e.g. realtimestockquote.com uses a simple HTTP POST protocol to retrieve quotes for its ticker applet, which in the simplest case can be emulated using something like cURL).

Best regards,
Chris.
