Canadian stocks should be treated same as US stocks now that we get real time quotes. Previous day data still not updated until 9:45AM EST
Now that Canadian stock quotes are real-time (no longer delayed by 15 minutes), it would be nice to see corresponding "previous day close" and "change" information correctly displayed between 9:30AM and 9:45 AM EST. Currently, these are based on close data from 2 days prior. The data only gets updated at 9:45.
I'm hoping this is a quick fix, given it should require similar algorithms as for the US markets. (It really gives heartburn first thing in the morning when I see a massive % decline for a second day in a row, only because the previous day's close data is not updated for the first 15 minutes.)

It's simply poor implementation, a small but very meaningful oversight. I am surprised it hasn't been corrected yet. It's funny because this offering is infinitely better than Google Finance and the real-time data agreement a big win for investors interested in the Canadian markets.

Agreed, this is an annoying bug.
