Forbes, famous for its 'lists' especially 'rich lists,' 'powerful people lists' and 'leading company lists,' now tracks in real-time the gains and losses of the world's top billionaires' investments during the New York Stock Exchange's hours of trading.

The 'leaders' are updated on a 15-minute delay every five minutes from the time the New York Stock Exchange opens at 9:30 a.m. until trading ends at 4 p.m.
