We don't pull real time rates from Yahoo because it's not streaming and it's not in a defined format. In other words, we'd have to screen scrape HTML to get the prices. The minute Yahoo makes one change to the page, it will break the plugin.
There isn't any reason why you couldn't make a go of it though. 2400 symbols is a lot of symbols. IQFeed offers something like 400 symbols and I think you can pay a bit more and get more symbols.
After creating and backtesting a system, I am ready to test live. The system runs over Nasdaq composite which has about 2400 symbols. Unfortunately in Interactive Brokers you get only a 100 symbols in real time which is far too less for the system to show a good performance. Since Yahoo! offers real time rates on their page and after reading this discussion, I was wondering if there is a way now, to link Yahoo! real time with Rightedge?
If not, do you have any other suggestions how to bring Nasdaq composite symbols (2400) relatively cheap (or free even better) to connect with Rightedge?
Thank you for your help
