Embed Stock Quote for Stock on the OTCBB. WordPress

  • SOLVED

I'm wanting to embed an auto-updating stock quote for OTCBB:ETAH on my wordpress web page. Something close to this would be great http://www.otcbb.com/asp/quote_module.asp?qm_page=78314&symbol=ETAH or just stock info with a graph (news not required).

I cannot figure out a way to do this! It seems only the NSE and NASDAQ are widely supported. Thanks!

Hi,

you could try this chart embedding service for "etah"

[[LINK href="http://www.wikinvest.com/special/Embed_Stock_Chart"]]http://www.wikinvest.com/special/Embed_Stock_Chart[[/LINK]]


ps: some other options:

a) The site you mentioned is using this embed:

<!-- Start of Quotemedia.com Multi-Channel QuoteModule Code -->
<script LANGUAGE="javascript" TYPE="text/javascript" src="http://app.quotemedia.com/quotetools/quoteModule.go?webmasterId=89753&symbol=ETAH&toolWidth=650&cp=off&action=showDetailedQuote&chfill2=6886A3&chfill=99C0D0DE&mktsymbols=^COMPX&mktsymbols=QQQQ&mktsymbols=^SP500&mktsymbols=^NYA&mktsymbols=^RUI&mktsymbols=^RUT&mainpageStatExchange=OTC&mainpageStatExchange=NSD&mainpageStatExchange=NYE&hiddenTabs=options&hiddenTabs=history&hiddenTabs=profile&statExchange=OTC&advCharts=on&targetsym=symbol&streamerURL=http://www.quotemedia.com/clients/otcbb/streamer/qstream.php&targetURL=http://www.otcbb.com/asp/quote_module.asp"></script>
<!-- End of Quotemedia.com Multi-Channel QuoteModule Code -->


so you might check out quotemedia.com, if you want the same embed. (most likely not free)

b) You can also check out [[LINK href="http://finance.yahoo.com/badges/"]]http://finance.yahoo.com/badges/[[/LINK]]

Here is a list of all covered exchanges

c) If you are allowed to hotlink the graph

http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/c/1y/e/etah

you could try:

<img src="http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/c/1y/e/etah" alt="etah">


from http://download.finance.yahoo.com/q?s=etah

d) You could also try this graph:

<img src="http://ichart.yahoo.com/t?s=etah" alt="etah">


here is ibm graph in comparison:

e) fetch the stock data from some stock source, it will need some programming.
