    Does anyone have any recent experience with paritech pulse ? i used it years ago, but ditched it when i had kids and stopped trading for a while.

    More specifically, what's the api like. I currently use IB's API and would like something similar to that but without the restrictions ( 100 tickers ).

    I've been trading with Paritrade, now OpenMarkets, for almost 10 years, using Pulse intensively. I do not, however, use any APIs. Anything I need outside Pulse (which IMHO beats anything webIress has to offer), I write myself in Excel.

    I thought I'd have a crack at this using yahoo finance watchlist scripts. I have attached file wlyh_20170209.zip which contains the following files:

    symlist.csv: Contains symbols used to download delayed data for. Modify to suit your needs.
    wlyh.pl: Perl watchlist script to fetch yahoo delayed data for symbols.
    wlyh.py: Python(2.7 and 3+) watchlist script to fetch yahoo delayed data for symbols.

    These scripts read symbols in from symlist.csv. Then every x seconds (variable sleepdur), download the corresponding delayed data from yahoo finance, clear the screen and display the results in the command prompt/terminal window. The variable "sleepdur" is currently set to 5 seconds, but you can change to suit your needs.

    To run, open up the command prompt/terminal window and navigate to the directory where zip file was extracted, then run either script like so:

    perl wlyh.pl
    or
    python wlyh.py

    Every x seconds, it will clear the screen and display the information with the following columns:

    Symbol, Last Price, Volume(Daily), Last Time, Prev Close

    I tested this successfully on Windows 7 and Linux.

    Let me know if it works for you and thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Andrew.
