    As a practice project I want to create a program that can give real time feedback of a certain stocks shares on my own GUI, would I need to connect to a website or something else and how could I go about planning to do this?

    You might look into using a NYSE (or the appropriate exchange's) stock ticker service. Or maybe the stock you're interested in following has an RSS or similar service for posting changes in their stock. Check their web page to find out what's available or find an appropriate service and then look for examples on how to incorporate that into code.
