Stock market charts from finviz

Description

This plugin adds a shortcode [finviz ticker=GE] to embed stock market chart images of a ticker
within your post or page content. The charts are dynamic, meaning they get refreshed on each page view from finviz.com web site.
The chart images include a small branded logo of finviz.com.
If desired then the chart images can be optionally hyperlinked to the relevant ticker page at finviz.com web site. The link will open in a new tab (target=_blank) showing relevant content at finviz.com web site.

Example shortcode [finviz ticker=GM] to embed the stock chart of General Motors (GM).

Optional link=true attribute [finviz ticker=GM link=true] to add a hyperlink to finviz.com web site, to the chart image.
Optional link=false attribute [finviz ticker=GM link=false] to remove a default hyperlink to finviz.com web site, from the chart image.

Optional width attribute [finviz ticker=GM width=500] to specify chart image width.
the default width is 700 pixels.

On the plugin settings page you may specify a default Add hyperlink to charts option for all finviz shortcodes, the optional link attribute on each shortcode overrides this site wide default setting if enabled, on installation the default is false.
On the plugin settings page you may specify a default alt text prefix option for all finviz shortcodes, on installation the default prefix is finviz dynamic chart for TICKER.

Please review the privacy policy on finviz.com to verify you are comfortable embedding dynamic charts and optionally linking to the finviz.com web site.
