bloggers and others with any interest in businesses and the stock market. You are able to create a stock chart for any given stock ticker that shows how the stock has performed over time. It’s not just a pretty chart thoughthe tool is interactive; as
you click and drag the mouse over the chart you can see all the relevant numbers at various points in time.Simplestockcharts makes it easy for anyone to set up interactive stock charts in their web pages;his solution is truly agreat problem solver. We examine the advantages of using his software. • Ease of Setup It is meant to be a plug-and-play solution for financial bloggers and financial portals. With little programming knowledge one can implement it. It is as easy as setting up Google Analytics. • The Service is Free There are a few financial charting services on the market that can be exported to third-party sites; fewer of them offering their services without a fee. There are no watermarks nor even license restrictions. Its free for commercial use. • NativeBrowser Technology Running purely on JavaScript the workload is done client-side. This reduces server load for publishers; meaningthat publishers can reach out to a larger audience without large investments in hardware. • Powered By Yahoo’s YQL Powered by Yahoo!’s YQL no external database is required. Hence it can be used for almost any financial asset in the Yahoo! database. Financial bloggers that want to provide a detailed analysis of a given asset can easily use the tool to support their other content. Other solutions open source or not requires a 3rd party data provider which can be extremely expensive. • Cross Browser Compatible Simplestockcharts.com was developed with HTML 5 and is compatible with all major browsers so users shouldn’t have any problems with functionality. Like is the case with a lot of excellent software his application was developed simply because Wencong noticed a requirement on the market. He was unable to find an open source tool that can do the task effectively. His personal story is another inspirational story to others. Starting out his first job as a Fishmonger while schooling he is following the footsteps of the greats. Learning how to programme himself he follows the tradition of sharing code among developers and programmers.No doubt plenty of people are hoping that Wencong continues to do coding projects like Simplestockcharts in his spare time and then share them with us.
