Is there any way in HTTP for a Server to automatically update a page
without requiring the user of the client to click on anything?

An example use of this would be if a Client requests a stock price
page and keeps the page displayed. Now suppose the stock price
changes. Is there a way within HTTP for the Server to update the page
automatically without requiring the user to click on the reload option?
