The disadvantage of Teletext is the minor problem of not knowing the page of the prices you wish to view, this may be time consuming, but it is only needed once. Over all I think teletext is the best way to monitor share prices because once you know how to use it, Time is effectively saved and no problems remain, However if you don't have a TV, which is less likely as society commonly uses TV then you would need to use the internet, which is also another easy way to monitor share prices, and is next best after Teletext I normally use the internet at school when I'm monitoring share prices to find out what my shares are, because I can't use a TV for this therefore I use the second best source, the Internet. ?? ?? ?? ??
