Bloomberg vs Google Finance
#1
Does anyone know why there is a difference in the price being displayed by bloomberg when comparing it to google finance.
I checked multiple stock quotes @ 11:20 PM SA time on both sites and they were all different on price and percentage change for the day.

Here is a screen grab I took for PTXTEN from both sites.

Which one is correct?
It seems like the price currently being displayed on Easy equities match that from Google Finance.

Interesting I assume Google Finance shows the pricing at 4:45PM where are Bloomberg says 11:00 AM Thursday, Eastern Time (ET) is

5:00 PM Thursday, in South Africa

Can that be the 15min delay?
I am thumb sucking here.

Did a bit of further investigation.
Looks like the last data bloomberg is showing stops just after 5pm yesterday.

https://www.bloomberg.com/markets/api/qu.../PTXTEN:SJ

There is a section called: priceTimeSeries and there is all the different price changes which stops @ 5pm.

Confirmed this with some other stocks as well.

There is another tag that says:
dateTimeRanges: {
start: "2016-08-10T07:00:00Z",
end: "2016-08-10T15:02:00Z" 

These are offset by 2 hours which means the data starts @ 9am and ends @ 5pm
