I just found out that Prophet.net will close down in February, I'm very sorry to hear this! I found out as their charts don't work now for their options chain page (due to the new symbology coming for options).

I use their intraday 10 day charts almost daily (Java charts).

Does anyone have another site(s) they are familiar with that offers similar charts? (At no charge, for delayed charts.)

I first found out about Prophet.net charts here, from TRO (Shout out to TRO!), so hopefully we can share info on a new source now.

Hi John, Do you mean that I can set up an account and never fund it?

Thank you! Does ThinkorSwim charting work on options too?

I can second Think Or Swim. Without funding you are @ the normal 20min delay but for charting thats OK and they have a great set of tools. And yes they do Options. You can also get FX and Futures data but FX & Futures are not their strong suit.

Plus TOSscript is pretty interesting.

Just to get real time I'm gonna toss'em the $3,500.00 to open an account finally after using them for free for the past year.

Is the TOS platform capable of backtesting?
