Cards: Display Financial Feeds (Stocks)

The Stocks is a card theme based on Appspace’s latest card installment, the Financial card, allowing organizations to display live financial feeds from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), keeping employees or investors informed of the latest trends in the financial markets.

The Stocks theme retrieves feeds from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and is able to display up to 10 company stock symbols per card.

These are the features and additional customizations available in the Stocks theme:

  • Display the financial stock symbols of companies listed on the NYSE.
  • Each stock symbol displays the company information, company symbol, stock price (30 days), current stock price, current day price, and the percentage change.
  • Display in a Light or Dark theme.
  • Enabling Display Options such as animation, and trend graph.
  • Selected company stock symbols are displayed on the thumbnail in the Library, allowing users to quickly identify the symbols assigned to the financial card.

With the introduction of Content Categories in Appspace 8.0 ac.22, the Stocks theme is assigned with the Productivity & Engagement content category.
