Looking for a ticker app for my PC (in the taskbar)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of a simple little ticker that I can install in my taskbar?
I like to keep an eye on at least one stock throughout the day, and usually I open up Google Finance, and then minimize the window so I can see the stock price down in the taskbar all day. But it "freezes" alot and needs refreshed all the time.

I'm assuming there has to be an application that I can install that will let me leave a ticker either minimized, or even permenently placed by the clock in the lower right corner of my screen?

Penny for your thoughts...

Thanks in advance.

http://stock-ticker-taskbar.qarchive.org/ cost $20 to put a bar on the top. I've never used one so I can't vouch for their effectiveness; however, just search google for "taskbar stock ticker". I got a few hits on the first page.

Thanks guys. I did the google thing, and all of them I could find either go all the way across the top or bottom of the screen. I'm looking for something much smaller, preferably just one symbol right beside the clock. (so it's not so "in your face" on the screen.)
I want keep it open at work, and a blingy, flashing, scrolling, ticker would draw attention if you know what I mean.
I'll play around with the one you linked on my home pc. Maybe it's customizable enough to keep it as unassuming as possible.
Thanks

let me know if you find a good one. I keep TOS desktop open on my work computer and it's always there at the bottom for everyone to see if they wanted.

I just installed the one Simon posted on my laptop. I think I like it.
You can change the size, change the colors so it blends in, and you can place it anywhere you want, as well as make it "always on top".
The thing I don't like about it is that I can't make it stop scrolling. (At least I haven't found a way yet)
The scrolling draws attention. If it just sat still, it would basically be hidden unless you were looking for it.
I'm still playing with it though....

Sorry...I'm a single shake guy. Far too busy for the follow-up jiggle.

Size adjustable (both height and width) and can be put anywhere on the desktop.

Thanks, I'll give that one a try.
The last one I downloaded looks really nice, and can be very unobtrusive on the desktop, but it would be nice if you could make it not scroll, and it needs to update quicker.

Edit... I installed it.
Looks nice, and I can turn off the scroll.... but it only updates every 5 minutes.
Still looking for one that's basically "live" that I can plant right down on my task bar by the clock. Only really need to watch one stock at a time.
