How accurate is Scottrade streaming quotes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at it change numbers every seconds but when I go to something like marketwatch where it also change every second, I'm getting a different value. Which one is more accurate? Where can I get the most accurate information as far as the current price of the stock? Thanks.

i have scottrade and it works for me. except for that one time when it had to "establish" and i didnt realize it so i bought a stock more than what i should have. but yea, overall scottrade is up to the sec.

It's good for streaming quotes, but their L2 is delayed badly.

With Scotrade, its a good idea to refresh the streaming quotes often, I see old data on there if its not refreshed at least every two hours or so

I have Scottrade. I have encountered some "establishing" issues as well. All in all it is pretty accurate. However, sometimes the T & S does not match the "last size" and "tick." Nothing major.
