Free up to the minute stockmarket valuations available from the internet

UK investors will soon be able to get instant stockmarket prices at the touch of a button with the launch of a new internet site.


The new site, Freequotes.co.uk, will provide investors with up to the minute details on stock prices a service previously restricted to subscriber channels only.


The service which is to go live in mid-July is part of the mutual.net internet site and is available free to all site subscribers.


Non-subscribers can still access the &#39freequote&#39 service, but information will be subject to a 15 minute delay.


Freequotes.co.uk joint-managing director Simon Wajcenberg says: &#34Until now real-time stock price data was available only as a paid for subscription service. For many private investors, paying for this type of information is not a viable option and they have had to settle for delayed information.&#34
