Today, Wikinvest launches the web’s first-ever interactive, embeddable stock chart. The charts are as easy to embed as a YouTube video, and your users can click, drag, pan, zoom, and play with no page refresh. And it’s all completely free.
If you’ve ever tried to include a stock chart in your blog, you know it’s a real pain: Press prnt-scrn while you’re on some finance website, paste it into a photo editor, crop the image, save, upload the image to your blog, include it in your post. No longer.
Our charts are zippy and responsive, because we think there’s nothing worse than a slow stock chart. Here’s an example chart, for Yahoo over the last seven months. You’ll also notice wikinvest’s user-generated annotations explaining major price movements:
The charts are fully customizable - you can embed a chart for almost all companies traded on U.S. and international exchanges, as well as commodities traded on CBOT and other exchanges. You can select zoom levels, date ranges, size, and whether or not to display annotations.
You can create your own custom chart at http://www.wikinvest.com/special/Embed_Stock_Chart
