Wealth-Lab 5 is a new application and is released in phases - it explains missing real-time adapters, the Optimizer tool, SimuScripts (which will become PosSizers), Reports-Lab and so on. :)

New, and new isn´t this a year old now?
Anyways will there be an API? or if not would you be interested in connecting to an API that connects to 7 feed providers?

Fidelity Wealth-Lab Pro had streaming data from the start but we're not - sorry for inconvenience. Reengineering the adapters like IQFeed, QuoteTracker and TC2K is a top priority.

Well, it could have a chance to be an year old if only in dog years. :) Developer 5.1 (no 5.0) was out just five days ago.

Yes, of course [it already is]. Unfortunately the API docs went under revision in Fidelity, that's why they're currently unavailable, causing confusion like this. The built-in Yahoo! adapter already delivers streaming daily charts (i.e. today's Ghost bar), real-time quotes in the Quotes tool (assuming a paid Yahoo! account) along with quotes in the status bar (a new 5.x feature).

Here's a 3rd party solution with a real-time provider for WL5: MultiQuoteServer .
