[stock-market-ticker symbols="AAPL;MSFT;GOOG;HPQ;^SPX;^DJI;LSE:BAG" stockExchange="NYSENasdaq" width="100%" palette="financial-light"]

This plugin is part of the Stockdio Financial Widgets, which also includes the following plugins:

The following parameters are supported:

symbols: A list of companies stock symbols, market index tickers, currency pairs or commodities ticker, separated by semi-colon (;) (e.g. AAPL;MSFT;GOOG;HPQ;^SPX;^DJI;LSE:BAG). Please review the FAQ section for additional details on how to includes indices, currencies and commodities, as well as how to specify custom names, combine data from different exchanges, etc.

scroll: Allows to set the ticker’s scrolling behavior (optional).

speed: Allows to change the ticker’s scrolling speed. Supported values are: slowest, slower, slow, normal, fast and faster. (optional).

  • Auto: ticker automatically scrolls (default).
  • No: static ticker.

layoutType: A number specifying the layout type used to display the ticker. Please visit www.stockdio.com/ticker_layouts to review the many ticker layout options available (optional).

width: Width of the list in either px or % (optional, default: 100%).

culture: Allows to specify a combination of language and country settings, used to display texts and to format numbers and dates, e.g. Spanish-Spain (optional). For a list of available culture combinations please visit http://www.stockdio.com/cultures.

motif: Design used to display the visualization with specific aesthetics, including borders and styles, among other elements (optional). For a list of available motifs please visit www.stockdio.com/motifs.

palette: Includes a set of consistent colors used for the visualization (optional). For a list of available palettes please visit www.stockdio.com/palettes.

font: Allows to specify the font that will be used to render the chart. Multiple fonts may be specified separated by comma, e.g. Lato,Helvetica,Arial (optional).

transparentBackground: Allows to display the ticker with a transparent background, which is particularly useful when using image or gradient backgrounds on your page. By default, the ticker’s background color is inherited from the palette. Setting this to true overrides any background color. (optional)

backgroundColor: Allows to specify a color for the ticker’s background. Color must be specified in RGB Hex format, without the # sign, e.g. use 000000 for black. By default, the ticker’s background color is inherited from the palette. (optional)

labelsColor: Allows to specify a color for the ticker’s labels, such as the symbol and company name. Color must be specified in RGB Hex format, without the # sign, e.g. use 0000FF for blue. By default, the labels color is inherited from the palette. Prices and percent of change are usually displayed using positive and negative colors, rather than the labels color. (optional)

positiveColor: Allows to specify a color to be used as « Positive » color, i.e. when close price is greater than previous close price. Color must be specified in Hex format, without the # sign, e.g. use 00FF00 for green. By default, the positive color is inherited from the palette. (optional)

negativeColor: Allows to specify a color to be used as « Negative » color, i.e. when close price is smaller than previous close price. Color must be specified in Hex format, without the # sign, e.g. use FF0000 for red. By default, the negative color is inherited from the palette. (optional)

loadDataWhenVisible: Allows to fetch the data and display the visualization only when it becomes visible on the page, in order to avoid using calls (requests) when they are not needed. This is particularly useful when the visualization is not visible on the page by default, but it becomes visible as result of a user interaction (e.g. clicking on an element, etc.). It is also useful when using the same visualization multiple times on a page for different devices (e.g. using one instance of the plugin for mobile and another one for desktop). We recommend not using this by default but only on scenarios as those described above, as it may provide the end user with a small delay to display the visualization (optional).

FAQ

How do I integrate the Stockdio Stock Market Ticker in my page?

There are two options to integrate it: as a plugin, using the short code, or through the use of the widget in your sidebars.

How do I know if the Stock Exchange I need is supported by Stockdio?

Stockdio supports over 65 different world exchanges. For a list of all exchanges currently supported, please visit www.stockdio.com/exchanges. Once you have found in the list the stock exchange you need, you must pass the corresponding Exchange Symbol using the stockExchange parameter.

How do I specify the symbols to display?

You can specify as many symbols as you want, from the selected exchange, separated by semi-colon (;). If any of the symbols you want to display does not show up, you can go to http://finance.stockdio.com to verify if the symbol is currently available in Stockdio. If the symbol you require is missing, please contact us at info@stockdio.com.

Can I combine more than one stock exchange on the same ticker?

Yes. The exchange you define in the stockExchange parameter will be the default stock exchange to be used. However, if you want to include symbols from a different exchange, you must prefix the symbol with the exchange code and a colon (:). For example, if you want to include two symbols from NYSE/Nasdaq but additionally include one symbol from London Stock Exchange, you would specify stockExchange= »NYSENasdaq », and symbols= »AAPL;MSFT;LSE:BAG ». This will also allow you to combine stocks with commodities and currencies in the same ticker.

Can I include one or more market indices in the ticker?

Yes, you can include indices in the symbols parameter, using the ^ prefix. For example, use ^SPX for S&P 500 or ^DJI for the Dow Jones. For a complete list of indices currently supported, please visit www.stockdio.com/indices

Can I create a Commodities ticker?

Yes. You must use COMMODITIES as the stockExchange and then specify one or more commodities in the symbols parameter. For example, use GC;SI;CL for Gold, Silver and Crude Oil. For a complete list of commodities currently supported by Stockdio, please visit www.stockdio.com/commodities

Can I create a Currencies ticker?

I would like to specify a custom name for a given symbol. Can I do that?

Yes, we understand there are several scenarios in which you may want to display your own name, such as if you would like to display a commodities ticker in your own language. This can be easily done by specifying your custom name between parenthesis, right after you have specified the symbol. For example, you can create a commodities ticker in Spanish specifying the following in the symbols parameter: GC(Oro);SI(Plata);CL(Petróleo Crudo). This works for any symbol, index, commodity or currency pair.

Can I specify my own colors for the ticker?

Is the ticker data real-time or delayed?

The company logo for one of the symbol is not correct or updated, can this be fixed?

Sure! Simply contact us to info@stockdio.com with the correct or updated logo and we will update it, once it has been verified.

Can I place more than ticker with different formatting on the same page?

Yes. By default, all tickers will use the values specified in the plugin settings page. However, any of these values can be overridden using the appropriate shortcode parameter. Each shortcode can be customized entirely independent.

How can I contact Stockdio if something is not working as expected?

Simply send an email to info@stockdio.com with your question and we will reply as soon as possible.

I used another ticker plugin but didn't work. This one works perfectly, and the API is free. I don't know why those negative reviews are for.

Working well and looks great with the ticker crawl across the screen. I like all the options to customize the layout. So far so good and no problems to report.
20 mai 2018
I ended up removing this plugin. At first I wasn't even sure if I was going to keep it because it uses an < iframe > to embed the information which does nothing for SEO or content. But once i decided to try it out I put it on a few webpages. Subsequently had to remove the plugin and change the pages as with very minimal traffic it was already wanting me to pay to upgrade and stopped providing information. Unless you are going to pay for the product, and it's not worth paying for, then don't bother with this one.

No. They give you 500 free views of a ticker, it is enough for nothing... bad
