Squawk is a live audio stream with key headlines and real-time market updates. 

There are 2 different Squawks to choose from:

- Squawk Equity ( from 6 am - 6 pm EST )
- Squawk Options ( 11 am - 1 pm EST )

Squawk Equity will give you alerts on stocks and the market as a whole, while the Squawk Options will only alert you on Options Activity. ( you can see most alerts in this squawk in the UOA add on workspace )

From 6am to 6pm (ET), Benzinga Pro updates you on news you need to know, in real-time, by announcing market developments which include market-moving exclusives, option alerts, volume spikes and rumors.

To use Benzinga Pro Squawk, hover your mouse over the Squawk icon on the left side of your page. The icon will expand and look like this: 

From there, you can control everything from the comfort of your own platform.

We have recently added a status indicator alert. Never again question if you are missing something on Squawk. You will always know your connection status.
