First International Financial Corp. in Los Angeles launched Free Real Time.com, an ad-backed site that offers investors unlimited free real-time stock-market information from the Nasdaq, American, and New York Stock Exchanges.
The recent volatility of stock markets has skyrocketed demand for real-time market data from Internet viewers for which 20-minute-delayed information is not adequate, the company said.
Free Real Time.com members can register online. The site was designed from the ground up to provide Free Real Time.com members with fast quotes.
“We believe real-time stock information is superior to old news, and real-time information gives investors the ability to make better-informed decisions,” said Brad Gunn, president of First International. “And because it is free, they save money.”
Advertisers and media buyers can choose to target their audience by criteria including city, ZIP code, income, occupation and company, Gunn said. CyberReps is handling ad sales.
