A stock quote can either mean the very last price of which a stock sold at or the current price in which market makers are prepared to buy and sell a stock. Stock quotes can be displayed in either real-time or 15-minute delay. The type of quote you obtain relies upon the source of the information and the exchange on which the stock is currently traded.

9. What are Delayed Quotes?

The easiest stock quotes to comprehend are delayed stock quotes. These quotes are typically on websites like Yahoo Finance and show the price at which the stock traded about 15 to 20 mins ago. Having said that, these prices don’t show you at what price an individual is willing to buy or sell the stock right this moment.

10. What are Real-Time Quotes

Real-time quotes are tricky since the act of buying or selling a stock can move the price up or down. This is especially valid in an “order driven market” like the New York Stock Exchange where the orders themselves set the price. Electronic exchanges such as the NASDAQ are “quote driven markets” where market makers compete to publish the best bid and ask prices for stocks. You are more inclined in this type of market to know precisely what price you will get, or there a bouts, before placing the transaction. As an example, offers real time quotes as well as Level I and Level II quotes.

11. What are Level 2 Quotes

Skilled stock traders depend on “Level 2 Quotes” to analyze the buy and sell pattern of a stock in real time in order to better predict what their own order may do to the price. Level 2 quotes display what type of institution was active in the transaction, the volume with the trade and what prices were being offered.
