To retrieve a quote, type in the symbol, company name or keyword into the quote box at the top of our home page  and then hit enter or click ‘Quote’ or 'Search'. If you cannot find a quote:

  • Verify that the exchange the company stock is trading on appears in the list box of exchanges on the quote page.

  • Verify that the stock is not a pinksheet issue, has not recently merged or changed symbols, and has not been de-listed.

  • Verify that you are querying on an equities stock symbol and not a chain, mutual fund, or option.

  • If you are using the quote lookup-by-name feature, try using less characters, or use the company symbol if you know it, specifying a lookup-by-symbol
