You can get quotes from Yahoo like this:

quotes = Import[
   "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quote.csv?s=\
CLU11.NYM+^GSPC+^FTSE&f=abdlohg"];
(*www.mathematicacookbook.com/downloads/YahooDataDownload.htm*)
TableForm[
 Map[List, MapThread[StringJoin, {{"WTI - ", "S&P - ", "FTSE - "},
    StringReplace[quotes[[All, 4]], {"<b>" -> "", "</b>" -> ""}]}]],
 TableHeadings -> {None, {"Last Trade"}}]
