Updating stock prices and fundamental information
After the market closes at 4:30pm, all the share prices are checked and adjusted for share splits, consolidations, rights issues, etc to give you accurate information. You can then update the historic price information after 6pm (US data is available from 10:30pm).
The daily updates of results, forecasts, analysts' buy/hold/sell recommendations, directors' dealings and unit trusts are also extremely fast and can be updated after midday.
With a single key press (F9), you will receive all the data since your last update. You will never lose any data, as ShareScope automatically updates from the last date on your database for an unlimited time period.
The information is downloaded directly from our own server, so there is no tiresome waiting on the web, and calls are charged at the local rate from within the UK. All you need is an Internet connection or a properly installed modem. Click the Update button or type F9 in ShareScope and it does the rest. It is possible to update from anywhere in the world, using a reliable internet connection.
As a rough guide, the daily download on a broadband connection takes about 20 seconds.
