XLQ is an updated download we have reviewed in the past that delivers free live, intraday and historical worldwide stock market data from the Internet directly to your computer.

XLQ downloads data through Microsoft Excel, xlqCompanion and programming language that supports COM. The new XLQ has supporting libraries for Windows 8 and Office 2013. The update now makes XLQ compatible with a 64-bit version of Excel. Version 4.8 also includes crash reporting. There were a couple new formulas added for Yahoo! and Force Index. XLQ 4.8 uses NTP (Network Time Protocol), as opposed to http services, to work better with exact times. There is an updated compatibility with IQFeed to reduce crashes.

Overall, XLQ 4.8 functions more efficiently, and fixes several bugs.
