Share the latest stocks and cryptocurrencies to your digital screens.
Please note, if you are using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative Stocks guide here.
The ScreenCloud Stocks & Exchanges app makes it easy to share the latest stock prices direct to your digital screens, powered by real-time information from Twelve Data API. This allows you to show the latest global stock prices on your digital screens in an office, reception, school, or business environment. You can also display cryptocurrencies, FX information, and indices.
With the ScreenCloud Stocks app you can:
- Choose multiple different stock or cryptocurrencies options from companies such as American Airlines, Cisco, and Starbucks.
- Receive new stock and cryptocurrency information in real-time.
- Choose a theme for your display, or create your own with custom colors and branding.
