    Any of you fine folks here on Stockaholics know of any good free stock indices widgets for websites, preferably one that has either real-time data or 15min. delay?

    I'm looking to potentially replace Tradingview's widget that we've had here on Stockaholics since inception.

    If you're wondering exactly what I'm referring to here, see my screenshot that I've highlighted in the red box below.

    The reason for this potential change here is because Tradingview has recently discontinued providing intraday updates to its widget as of this week.

    You might recall that this used to update data intraday (albeit with a 15min. delay), but now it only updates EOD (end of day). Meaning, you get an update only after the market close instead of intraday.

    Personally, I used this a lot when I log on the forums here to see where the futures are at, etc. It was nice not having to fire up the platform or opening other sites like Finviz to see the futures. It was all right here on the right sidebar of the home page at Stockaholics.

    That's no longer the case, as the data no longer updates.

    I really loved that Tradingview widget though. It was nice and clean, and blended extremely well into the forum.

    I'm wondering if there's not something similar out there? I've looked all over though, and didn't really find anything. So, I'm wondering if maybe I missed something in my searches that you guys didn't.

    Let me know! Would be greatly appreciated.

    In the meantime, I'm gonna play around with the Tradingview widget a little here and see if the symbols were using have maybe been depreciated or something, and are using new symbols. That could be it.

    Anyway, if you guys have anything aside from Tradingview that's similar, post 'em in here!

    Thank you in advance to anyone who might be able to help. :)

    Alright, well I just changed over the symbols to SPY, DIA, QQQ, etc...until I can either find the futures symbols that updates intraday, or find a completely new widget to put there that is very similar to Tradingview's.
