How do you find the current price of a stock? I have been trying to find an answer on the docs, but it isn’t very user friendly. I want to find the current price, not the open or close price.
Its going to be hard to answer because you need to be more specific and the documentation is terrible. There is no ‘current’ price in stock trading. So that maybe some of the problem.
There is the current BID and ASK and there is the Last Trade. Anyone of those might be what you want for current.
This page in the docs may help. This is a query for Latest quote that might be what you want.
Let’s say it is 10 am est, and I want to check the current price of the stock. Is there a way to do that? Or do I have to use last quote?
I think you are you wanting Last Trade - that is the last price the stock traded at. It is not the ‘Current’ price. If you were to execute a market trade you are going to get the last quote - ASK price - which could be significantly different. Hope that helps.
