The Qatar Exchange is pleased to announce enhancements to data services provided through its website.
Real-time updates to the orderbook of each QE listed stock are currently available via the Market Watch service at www.qe.com.qa.

Trade data and other market statistics will not require users to login to the Market Watch application.

Marketwatch is a sophisticated low latency market data monitor allowing investors full price transparency throughout the trading day.
