Ticker Tape 1.1 is a free software which brings quote on you desktop from Yahoo Finance.

Link for the download site is TICKER TAPE 1.1

It supports Yahoo symbol list ( Including .NS prefix)
After installing the program it will display Nasdeq and S&P symbols. Right click on the Tape and click on the "Edit Symbols" menu. Delete all the available symbols and add your desired symbols such as TISCO.NS, SAIL.NS, IDBI.NS etc.

In this forum I have given Yahoo symbol list with and without .NS prefix. I have tried and it all works.


In the "options" menu you can prescribe update intervals and fields for display and color scheme.

It will sit unobstrusively on your desktop. Members may find it useful.

Dear

You have to add following sybmols
For SENSEX add " ^BSESN "
For NSE Nifty add " ^NSEI "
For NSE S&P CNX 500 " ^CRSLDX "
For NSE Nifty junior " ^NSMIDCP "
For CNX MIDCAP 200 " ^CRSMID "
FOR S&P DEFTY " ^NSED "
For BSE DX " ^BSEDX "
It will show both indices.
It does not seem to accept numerical values in the symbols
(Without quotation marks ,of course.)
Yahoo List is attached. Symbols from it can be used. If any symbol shows ??? marks means it is changed and you need to lookup here: Yahoo Symbol Look up
and enter the correct symbol.
Alternatively you can click on the symbol in the ticker tape and it will open up the page containing information about the script. If symbol is not working you can lookup in that window .


Regards.

Hi

This is an excellent ticker and best is that it is free.
