You wouldn’t drive with faulty windscreen wipers. You wouldn’t try to read a book with broken glasses. You might try and chop logs with a blunt axe, but you wouldn’t get very far.

So why do people invest using the wrong tools when the right ones are available after only a few clicks?

You might already be trading, which is a tough game at the best of times, but how is your axe sharp enough?

I’m asking because there is a move in the information world to provide low quality information passed off as the real thing.

There is a back plot to this, so I’ll fill you in. Stock market data comes in three flavours:

  • Delayed data; which is released after 15-20 minutes. This is useless to trade with. If you use delayed data you are effectively blind to fast moves or sudden price swings – you could lose your investments or miss making a fortune!
  • Real Time; This is where the problem lays, there’s Full Real Time and crippled real time.

Investors shouldn’t be forced to use crippled real time to make important investment decisions; you can get full real time for free on ADVFN.

Investors need the best tools to trade, not crippled or delayed data, because like broken tools your investing life will be made a misery.

A free ADVFN account provides investors with free stock market tools that a few years ago would not even be available to the professional fund manager;

  • FULL Real time share prices.
  • Fundamental information.
  • Portfolio tracking.
  • News.
  • Opinion.
  • Many more free services!


These free services let you make highly informed financial decisions on what share to buy and when to sell them.Researching your stock market investments might seem like work. That is because stock market investing is work.

So, stop and sharpen that axe as it’s the only way to get the job done.

This is the stuff elite traders live by. If you want to do day trading or try to join the big game it’s a must.

Sadly, many low quality share information venues like certain major portals pass off crippled real time as true real time. This crippled real time can be bought by sites on the cheap, no surprise there, and it’s being provided as real time because a small part of the real time information is provided. This element is the last traded price.
