A scrolling ticker to display stock prices
This plugin allows you to add a simple jquery ticker to your WordPress web site.
The ticker 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.
Not just listed companies, there is also support for currency pairs, indices and commodities. All prices are retrieved from Yahoo! Finance (they are always delayed by 20 minutes).
Watch The Video Introduction
The plugin has three separate widgets that allow you to add scrolling tickers, static blocks of company quotes or our new stock tile (pictured here).
Each of these widgets can be used independently in the widget areas available inside your WordPress theme.
Scrolling stock tickers can be inserted into any page or post; directly in the WordPress content with a simple shortcode.
Enable charts on your ticker; a user clicking a specific symbol will see a chart of the stocks recent movements.
The plugin comes with two widgets that can be placed into any widget area in your theme.
The example below shows the ticker in a sidebar widget.
We also support for simple static display of the quoted prices. This is useful for public companies wanting to show their own price on their website as well as showing a group of like companies or sectors in a page or post.
Static Display Options
The 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).
Advanced Static Display Options
Introduced in version 3.0 you’re now able to setup an advanced set of stock quotes, indices and commodities then use them throughout your site using the new shortcode format.
Using then shortcode you now tell it which stocks to display, see the examples below:
Will display two stocks Apple and Google
Just display one stock, Apple.
If you’re writing about a specific company you can now choose to display quotes relevant to that company on right there on the page!
How it works?
The plugin 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.
Data pulled from Yahoo! Finance is cached in WordPress so that it is not retrieved for every page load on your WordPress site.
The plugin has a detailed documentation page that outlines the use of all the functionality.
