Support » Plugin: Stock Quote » Can no longer list the %ltrade% value

  • In the previous version I had, 0.1.7.1, I could have an %ltrade% option. This is no longer supported in 0.2.0.4, mostly because this plugin is fetching the daily values from AlphaVantage, instead of INTRADAY. My client wants to see updates more often than just once a day, so I’d like a way to select the different feed without having to edit the php source.

    (It’s not a big deal to maintain this change going forward, I’m using “git subrepo” to help with upstream plugin updates in wordpress, but this change seems like a step backwards in supported features).

  • Hi @eigood,

    I plan to implement GLOBAL_QUOTE feed from AlphaVantage.co instead of TIMESERIES_DAILY and TIMESERIES_INTRADAY, because GLOBAL_QUOTE have more details than individual TIMESERIES and does not require calculations within my plugin.
    Previously Google feed hat everything pre-calculated in API response, but AlphaVantage does not have.

    Please note, AlphaVantage.co introduced 5 requests per minute for free API keys, so websites with more than 5 symbols will reach that limit quickly.

    Unfortunately, time is not my friend. I would appreciate if you help and contribute to Stock Quote plugin by implementing optional feed. Here is official GitHub repo for plugin https://github.com/urosevic/stock-quote

    Thanks,

    I can do some work on this; for 0.1.7.1, I also had implemented a background type fetch, as originally it would block the main php process, and under heavy load, when the cache became invalid, there would be a storm of updates. I did it with a system-level cron, tho.

    The timeline required by the client needs me to move on, but I can work on this in my spare time.

    Hi @eigood,

    Would you like to share forked version 0.1.7.1 with me (if that one works with AV instead of Yahoo Finance :)?

    Thanks,
    Aleksandar
