This is finally the stock ticker widget you've been looking for. After becoming frustrated by the lack of decent stock widgets on the Android I decided to finally make a decent one. The result is a CNBC style, two layer, multi speed scrolling stock ticker that not only looks cool, but provides you with up to date quotes for your entire portfolio in a small amount of space. Recommended use is to put individual stocks on the upper watchlist while major global indices and/or currencies on the lower watchlist.
This is a widget and requires one full line of space. To add a widget, long click on empty space within your home screen then select 'Widget' --> 'Stock Ticker Tape Widget'. The widget features a 4 X 1 widget which will work for most phones as well as 6 X 1 and 8 X 1 widgets for larger devices and tablets.
In this free version, the upper watchlist contains high volume individual stocks quotes while the lower watchlist contains the following major global indices:
- S&P 500
- Russell 2000
- London Stock Exchange FTSE 100
- French CAC 40
- German DAX 30
- Japanese Nikkei 225
- Chinese Shanghai Composite Index
- Hong Kong Hang Seng Index
- Korean Kospi Index
- S&P Australian ASX 200
If you like this version, please consider the pro version which allows you to customize the watchlists using your own symbols.
