    Since at least some time last week, LastPriceRealTime() does not provide any data for the current day until 10am, 30min after the market opens. After 10am, the prices can be as much as 15min delayed, as at least the ones I've looked at are right now. While I understand this function is not a true streaming real-time quote, 15min delayed is no better than Yahoo and, imo, should not be labeled a 'realtime' function. Can you please define what LastPriceRealTime() actually is and its boundaries/limitations? There is no sense in my trying to use this function if its current performance is normal. What kind of delay can be expected that is dependable? 1min? 3min? 5min? Thanks.

    Hi Greg,

    I checked it for MSFT, it seems to be returning same value as that on yahoo. Is it not for you?

    Thanks

    As I said, 'some' quotes were as much as 15min delayed earlier this morning and nothing worked before 10am. Most seem ok now - I use the entire S&P 500 list. It is definitely not working correctly/reliably. I appreciate you checking MSFT but could you answer my original question so I can decide whether to keep using the function at all. Thanks

    It's Wed morning, 9/13. LastPriceRealTime() began working at 9:54, 24min late, and the price for AMD right now at 10:04 is at least 17min delayed by my clock. Please explain. Please fix.

    It has been 3 weeks since reporting this problem. Is there any resolution?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Hi Greg,

    Sorry for the delay. This will go in coming marking this thread as todo. I checked it but could not replicate this issue. The only thing I can think of is caching. We will check again before the new release on around 15th.

    Kind regards
    Ankur
