The SIA Stock Ticker allows you to get up to the minute stock price updates and business news on your computer. It neatly sits in your system tray where you can add, edit, and delete stock tickers. Even get your stock updates from behind corporate proxies and firewalls. Version 1 includes unspecified updates.
