Stock market prices live on ITN

The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) in association with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) will launch a special service to provide share prices on TV through the Independent Television Network (ITN) during stock market trading hours.

This will benefit stock market investors and others interested in investing in the stock market.
Commencing from June 01 ITN will broadcast in the form of crawlers, share price updates directly from the CSE.

Details of all securities that are traded at the CSE as it happens will be displayed on ITN. The code name of the stock, the price and indication of an increase or decrease from the previous price.

The All Share Price Index and the Milanka Price Index will form the crawlers that will continuously stream through the TV screen.

The crawlers will commence on market opening at 9.30 a.m. Monday to Friday and close at 2.30 p.m. at market close. This service will provide stock market information to those who are unable to access live stock market information
