The one service that was reasonably good for this was Opentick. They're 
no longer around, thus taking down 'opentick' package as well.

RBloomberg, yes, you need a BBG subscription. The base price jumped from 
$1800/seat/mo to $1900 last Dec. Realtime equities data is extra.

IBrokers, yes, you need to have an account... A couple of colleagues I 
know who can't quite go for the 1900/mo bloomy opened a IRA with IB and 
just pay the non-pro mkt data fee per month for US Equities. That may be 
the best way to go.

I know there are packages like RBloomberg or iBrokers but dont they depends on their commercial platform where you need to pay for account? Can I download real-time data,for example in quantmod, without paying for it? Thanks in advance
