A scrolling ticker to display stock prices
This plugin allows you to add a simple jquery ticker to your WordPress web site. It works by pulling free stock market prices from Yahoo! Finance as so supports any stock market code, index or currency pair that you can find there.
The plugin is very easy to setup, simply enter the stock symbols or currency pairs in the plugin settings page. You can choose to place a company name next each one to be displayed on the animated ticker or leave it just as as the stock code.
Data pulled from Yahoo! Finance is cached in WordPress so that it is not retrieved for every page load on your WordPress site.
On the front end your web site the stock information is displayed in a scrolling ticker, click the screen shot below for an example. For each stock, it shows the current price (delayed from Yahoo!), then the price movement today in both units and percentage.
The ticker features automatic colouring of data to indicate rises and falls in price.
Option to enable charts that are displayed when a user clicks an individual ticker symbol.
