The first stock market skin ? Nice job !

But you should change the background : we can see the "event" text under the green line ( is it a background from rainlendar ?)
Why not drawing a grey rectangle and its shadow ? :
[MeterBKGShadow]
Meter=Image
X=9
Y=12
W=192
H=90
SolidColor= 25, 25, 25, 45

[MeterBKG]
Meter=Image
X=7
Y=10
W=192
H=90
SolidColor= 25, 25, 25, 125

But you'll have to provide the green line :)
Great skin, I already modded to my needs

This looks almost exactly what I was looking for but when I tried to add different symbols to it the results wouldn't display. It worked with the top market indices like Global Dow, Dow Util and NYSE but not with regular sotcks. How do you configure it?
Anyone know of a config that scrolls stocks in say your tool bar or other empty areas like in the menu bar of your browser without taking up screen real estate?

@torrentmt: Open up the config file and you'll see it would be easy to do. Look at the variables section. Go to the URL and you'll see what's available on that site. For gold futures, change one of the Ticker values to "Gold future" and change the associated Stock value to what you'd want to display (e.g. "Gold" or "Au").

@brian6string: If I was to give you the 4 stocks I'd like to watch, could you edit the config and then email me the .ini?

I try to modify the ini file with Ticker4="Gold future" and Stock4="Gold Future" but there is something wrong with the parsing

@brian6string: I've installed it and am trying to change the stock tickers to stocks of my own choosing. The symbols are MSFT, USB, and GOOG (for Microsoft, US Bancorp, and Google, respectively). When I use the configuration below, it doesn't show any stocks except for the DJIA, which I've left as it is since I downloaded your ticker. Do you know why?

[Variables]
;URL=http://www.bankier.pl/inwestowanie/

Stock1="Dow Jones"
Stock2="US Bank"
Stock3="Microsoft"
Stock4="Google"
Ticker1="DJIA"
Ticker2="USB"
Ticker3="MSFT"
Ticker4="GOOG"

Also, excellent work. I nearly went back to Windows' sidebar because I couldn't find a ticker.

I've created my own stock ticker that'll allow you to use virtually any stock symbol. It's still basically unusable, but it's linked below.

Any update on getting this to work with other stocks? You will probably just need to update your parsing to grab info from

Thanks. I can't find any other stock apps for Rainmeter, kinda surprising.

I wish I could like this skin, however the instructions of "simply change the Url" are not correct, and/or not very descriptive. By the looks of the comments I am not the only having problems when trying to add specific stock symbols....
