It's been a long time in the making, but Google finally now offers real-time stock quote information for NASDAQ on Google Finance. This feature is important, and gives Google a bit of an advantage over Yahoo Finance -- you have to pay $13.95 a month if you want real-time quotes there. Now Google supports real-time quotes for the following:

  • Dow Jones Indices
  • NASDAQ Indices
  • NASDAQ Stock Exchange
  • New York Stock Exchange Indices
  • S&P Indices
  • Shanghai Stock Exchange
  • Shenzhen Stock Exchange

This is interesting because according to Yahoo, they don't list any free real-time data in Yahoo Finance at all. This is a huge step in the right direction -- I wonder how long it will be befpre Yahoo makes their real-time data free as well?
