Quote pages are windows arranged like a spreadsheet. Each row in the quote page represents a security (or "instrument"). The columns represent items of market data for the instruments, such as "last price" or "PE Ratio". Investor/RT supports more than 100 distinct market data items for each instrument.
A quote page can contain an unlimited number of rows (instruments) and up to 30 data columns. Any quote page can be displayed in a variety of formats. A format consists of the order in which you choose to display your data columns. You can Drag and Drop to change the order of the columns or add new columns from an icon in the quote page toolbar.
When Investor/RT is connected to a continuous data feed, all of the symbols in open quote pages update dynamically, without any action from the user. The program will even operate in the background, updating your quote pages, charts, portfolios, and news while you work in other programs. You can create and name an unlimited number of your own quote pages. Investor/RT also features a dozen built-in quote pages that keep lists of symbols by security type ("stocks" quote page, "options" quote page, etc.). Quote pages can be sorted by any of the data columns with a point-and-click. Quote pages can even be set to sort automatically as Investor/RT updates.
