I’ve been using Yahoo Finance, but I’ve just found out that it has a delay of 15 minutes or so. Is there any way I could get fresher rates somewhere? Say, 5-minute old instead of 15? Many forex brokers offer free “informers” that autoload data in an interval of seconds, so maybe there’s a few that allow this data to be downloaded in bigger intervals without the use of their informers strictly for personal use? Questions on Stack Overflow are expected to relate to programming within the scope defined by the community. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope.

So i don’t think it’s stupid to wonder if there might be something like that for forex as well. They also have free downloadable tick-data, going back to 2007, but you need to create a demo account and use a COM based Windows API called Order2Go to retrieve it. You have to poll fxcm to see if the rates changed, so it’s not real-time. Arron – the only “real-time” quotes are the ones seen by the co-located high-frequency trading algorithms. I get response with ajax request?
