If you invest in stocks, then chances are you fire up your favourite mobile app, multiple times a day to watch your investments or *cough gambles, because YOLO. TickrMeter is the world’s first real-time desktop stock ticker for consumers.
You can set TickrMeter on your desk, on your monitor, on your bedside table, or even mount it to the wall and watch your net worth rise and fall in real-time. The displays show your stocks, along with the latest prices and the daily change. There’s a nice red or green bar to the right to understand how your day is going with a quick glance.
Right now, TickrMeter supports stocks on the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, London Stock Exchange, TSX and more (no word on the ASX yet). TickrMeter provides best-in-class financial data from Polygon.io and has a latency of just 20 microseconds, faster than you can click buy or sell.
TickrMeter utilizes an E-Paper display to showcase stocks. E-Paper emits no light, and falls naturally into the surroundings like a framed picture. E-Paper is an ambient-light-reflecting display technology. lt drives ink droplets by electricity to make natural, clear images on the screen, illuminated by lighting the environment rather than a backlight. This also means that it uses very little power.
TickrMeter is customizable to cater to both long-term investors, day traders, and everything in between. You can even input your own cost average and have TickrMeter show your gains (or losses) on any chosen ticker.
One of my favourite features is the ability to stack or daisy-chained TickrMeter with the power of magnets, so you can power up to eight TickrMeters with a single USB charger.
