DDFLink is the easiest and cheapest way to get live streaming data and very broad instrument and exchange coverage for Mathematica. Bear in mind that all "market data" that Mathematica provides is delayed by at least 15 minutes! (as is required by the rulebooks of the various exchanges) The only delay in the market data with DDFLink is network latency of the internet!

As with all Mathematica products from Lauschke Consulting, DDFLink comes with the Interactive Symbol Browser and the Interactive Expression Browser. They are fully integrated at no additional charge.
