RSS Stock Ticker · I’ve said more than once that I’d like an RSS feed for my stock mar­ket port­fo­lio. I even cob­bled one to­geth­er a few months ago, but I lost it some­how in the laptop-to-laptop tran­si­tion. Now Wal­ter Hig­gins emails me: “prompted by your post last june on rss stock tick­er­s, and be­ing a dab­bler in stocks and rss my­self, I’ve been main­tain­ing a feed that mon­i­tors stocks and port­fo­lios. e.g. this will dis­play cur­rent val­ues for sun, mi­crosoft and or­a­cle while this will re­turn a rss feed for a port­fo­lio of 1000 shares of sun, 200 of mi­crosoft and 500 shares of or­a­cle. This feed in­cludes a to­tal port­fo­lio val­ue. This tick­er feed is re­spon­si­ble for most of my site traffic.” [Up­date: Some­one iden­ti­fy­ing him­self on­ly as “Mick” writes in to tell me about the recently-arrived RSSQuotes.­com, which claims to of­fer real-time quotes. Do­ing that for free is a neat trick­... I won­der about the busi­ness mod­el, but the site is information-free about who they are.]
