Inline Stock Quotes is a WordPress plugin that allows users to use the [stock] shortcode to insert dynamically updating quotes into their posts.
By default, quoted prices appear green when daily change is positive, white when neutral, and red when negative. The look is similar to what you’ll find on business news sites like CNBC and Motley Fool!
