    Hi!

    www.MarketVolume.com provides a Chart that displays data from the stock market. It is available to subscribers that login.

    Can I use Fiddler to capture the data that is displayed in the Chart?

    In the Chart, I can set the frequency of the update. For example, every 15 minutes the Chart is updated. So, I assume there's a request/response method using login credentials.

    Hello,

    Fiddler can capture HTTP/S traffic, so if this site is using HTTP/S to communicate then it can. However it depend strongly on the implementation of the given website. If it is a Single Page Application (or SPA) then the data is probably passed as a AJAX requests or through WebSockets. If not and it is regular website - then you may need to parse the HTML and extract the needed information.
