    Since AlphaVantage.co introduced premium subscriptions and limited free API keys to 5 requests per minute and 500 request per day, a lot of Stock Ticker users experience an issue that quotes are not updated for days.

    Because of lack of time to finish and fully test update for Stock Ticker which support this new limitation introduced by AlphaVantage.co, until I get a chance to finish testing and release new update, as a developer of Stock Ticker I would suggest to you get work-in-progress version of Stock Ticker from official plugin’s GitHub repository https://github.com/urosevic/stock-ticker by following this steps:

    1. Disable Stock Ticker from WordPress Dashboard > Plugins page (do not Uninstall plugin!)
    2. Download master plugin package https://github.com/urosevic/stock-ticker/archive/master.zip
    3. Extract ZIP archive to your local machine
    4. Rename extracted directory stock-ticker-master to stock-ticker
    5. With FTP client (like FileZilla) upload whole content from stock-ticker directory to wp-content/plugins/stock-ticker/ on your server
    6. Enable back Stock Ticker plugin in WordPress on page Plugins > Installed Plugins
    7. Go to Settings > Stock Ticker and simply Save Settings without any change
    8. After plugin settings get updated, click on button Fetch Stock Data Now! and wait until fetcher grab updated quotes

    This should resolve quotes update until I release new version of plugin.

    Kind regards,
    Aleksandar
