Default Great way to view graphical real time stock quotes free and without a download

Please Login to Remove!

Step 1. In address book create an entry and name it "Stocks"

Step 2. Go to http://Google.com via your PC and type in the query field the ticker symbol of the stock you want to chart. Google will then refresh the page with a line graph of the days prices.

Step 3. Right click on the graph, click "Properties" and copy the Image Properties "Location" URL. Highlight from HTTP-to the ticker symbol (repeat step 3 for multiple stocks)

should look like: http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=SIRI

Step 4. Open email client and paste all the copied URLs, send email to your blackberry with URLs

Step 5 Once you get the email, open the email on your blackberry and copy all of the URLs to your new "Stocks" address. The best place to put all of this is in the "Notes" field.

Here is what it should look like in your address notes field =

Notes:http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=SIRI
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=XMSR
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=PALM
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=PSRC
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=GTW
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=AAPL
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=NXTL
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=RIMM
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=GOOG
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=UTX
http://www.google.com/pfetch/dchart?s=MOT

Save and you are done!

When you are finished with the process, the fasted way to get this information from the home screen is to disable dial from home screen option. Press "A" for Address Book, then type in Stocks or a shortened version of the name, click "View, " scroll to the hyperlink. The blackberry will recognize this as a hyperlink. As you scroll down your blackberry will highlight each Stock.

Pick the stock you want, push in the scroll wheel and select "Get Link." The browser should take about 3 seconds to retrieve the data. All that will show up is a pretty little line graph of the days action. Stock prices are on about a 20 minutes delay however.

Please keep in mind that the hyperlink will be cached so if you check it throughout the day you will have to refresh the graph by pushing in the scroll wheel and hitting "refresh"

This method works for any internet residing picture!!
