NOTE: Java warning

Your browser may display a warning regarding a "Java plugin" that wants to run in this page. This is so we can identify which version of Java you have installed. If you are not using the Java applets you can ignore this warning, otherwise you should allow the plugin to run.

Mobile Apps

Stockwatch has mobile apps for:
iPhone/iPad
Blackberry
Android

Html5 Streaming

Html5 Streaming runs on our webpages to display live quotes, market depth and charts. It connects to the same servers as our other client programs and will run in most modern web browsers.

Stockwatch Desktop

Stockwatch Desktop is our new standalone application program. All the functionality of the Ticker and Daytrader Workstation is available, and it is very similar to the them in operation. You can download and install this program on your PC. This is NOT a Java program so you it does not have the resource limitations of a Java applet.

Streaming Realtime Quote Java Applets

Stockwatch has two Java applets you can use for streaming realtime quotes. Both programs provide complete views of your live stock quotes, market depth, and full charting capabilities.

Stockwatch recommends that you install and run the Desktop as described above. New features will only be available in the Desktop, although we will continue to maintain the Java applets.

The Live Ticker is the simpler program, which you can use if your computer is old or if you do not have a need for complicated layouts. We recommend this for first time users.

The Daytrader Workstation is a more complex program with more capabilities for managing and saving layouts.

Live Html5 Streaming Ticker

The Html5 Streaming Ticker displays stock quotes and trades in realtime.
To view charts, market depth or level 2, trades, news or other stock details right click on the stock quote.
