Can anyone tell me how to obtain real time tracking of a stock (say SP500) in a format that i can download automatically?

What i'm trying to do is track the daily buy/sell data (in realtime) and have the data automatically download onto my computer (where i can link an application to it ). Currently i have to copy / paste the daily info which is too old by the time the market closes. Something that sends the data to me via .xls format would be ideal! : )

Is there anything like this available to the small time investor?

thanks in advance.

HI RR,
i just got my way through setting up the Gaier link you gave me.
It seems to work ok but for some reason it's tracking stocks on the TSX about every 20 mins instead of every min (or sooner which would be my preference). Tracking on the U.S. exchanges seems to be much faster (2-3 min updates).

Can you recommend any other addins that i could try?

thanks in advance
Steve

I use the Gaier add on for Excel and it’s perfect for me, I trade via a broker where the updates are faster and track general assets in excel.....
