How do I add stock quotes to my Web page?
I would like to add the days current stock on my web page. I read your answer to someones questions about adding the current weather, I would like to do the same but with stocks.
There are a bunch of ways you can do this, including writing some software to scrape specific stock data off a site like Yahoo Finance, but there are better solutions out there, including one from Financial Content.com, a company that actually grew out of one of my own startups.
Their solution isn't very flexible, but if all you seek is the ability to specify a few ticket symbols and have a nice set of financial data on your page, then their Market Snapshot for Business Blogs and Websites could be the perfect match.
First, you specify the ticket symbols you seek:

Nice, simple, attractive and professional.
Hope that helps you get running with your own financial content on your site!
