Great software! One thing: I'm not able to add the ^DJI for the Dow Jones Index...It isn't showing up, although all other indexes work perfectly. Could you please look into this?
For some reason, Yahoo!Finance isn't providing data for ^DJI through the public "download" link which is the mechanism in use. I suggest utilizing DIA as a replacement -it's the ETF following dow-jones industrial index, and the values match if you do a division by 100.
Stocks are showing 0.00 across the board.
I believe Yahoo!Finance was generally down most of this morning
Thanks for the update. When I get it working this will be excellent "current status " $0.00 (0.00%) " all stocks
If it still isn't working for you, please email me some details on your windows operating system version, language and localization settings your operating system uses, and I'll check if it is related: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just FYI to everyone, B.Valley's issue was relating to how to represent stocks in Canada. Like mentioned before, all symbols must conform to Yahoo!Finance's style. For Canadian stocks, that means adding .TO to each stock.
This appears to run fine on Windows 8.1 Desktop, but any maximized application totally obscures the ticker.
Is there a way to edit the width of the bar so it doesn't take up the whole width of the window.
By manually editing the "stocks Ticker options.xml" file, you can setup a custom position for the bar, change CustomPosition tag to True, and add a line for a DesiredFormBounds tag, for example: True 1920,0,3840,27
