The Quick Quote gadget allows you to view basic pricing data of a symbol. This data includes current last, bid, and ask prices and also the net change. For futures and forex, the net change is measured from the last transaction in the previous trading session; for other instruments, since morning. The Quick Quote is basically a watch list that only has one symbol in it. While you cannot customize this watch list, all other watch list functions are available: you can send orders, create alerts, and view more in-depth info on the symbol from the right-click menu.
