Free Stock Ticker Tools
A stock ticker is a running report of the prices and trading volume of securities traded on the various stock exchanges. A "tick" is an up or down movement in the sale price of a security. Since the days of the paper ticker tape dating back to 1867, stock tickers have evolved with the times, becoming fully electronic with most being presented in real-time or with only a small delay of 15-20 minutes.
