Stock info on your BlackBerry, brokers rejoice

Comments

Stock brokerWith a little help from StockHouse, Reuters has integrated live, streaming stock market information through their Connect-Station client on BlackBerry. The software features a configurable Watchlist, scrolling headlines, full news stories, and a few other handy features which would prove useful to the modern BlackBerryin’ stockbroker. Talk to Reuters about pricing, but StockStream for PC goes for around $9.95/month, so you can expect something in that range.
