Introducing Ticker Tape on the Quotes Pages

Posted by Yahoo Finance Team in New Features

We are excited to add a popular new feature to the top of all our quotes pages. Now you have faster and easier access to stocks you care most about.

The new ticker tape, prominently placed, displays the most recent quotes you last looked at. This is the same useful functionality we offer on our front page. If you want more information on a stock, just click on the name it will take you directly to that quotes page. This saves you time by surfacing the basic price information on your current page as well as no longer making you type in the symbol for the stock you want more information on.

We also offer you the option to change your preferences. If you don’t like the scrolling, then turn it off. You can also change the speed.

Lastly, if you want a more holistic view of the market, you can switch the display to market overview, which shows the major indices.

For the past few weeks, we have been in beta, listening to your feedback and improving the product. Now that we are in GA, we still want your input. Please let us know what you think
