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.
Static Display Options
In the latest versions of the plugin (2.7 and higher) there is now the option to display a static block of stock quotes via a shortcode or with a new widget.
This display can be just stock names and prices or optionally with chart displayed as well. Click a stock code and the chart is loaded without a page reload.
Static prices can also be used via a new widget that can be used inside any available widget area to display a list of stocks and their current prices (charts are not currently available inside the widget).
