I have a program similar to Reuters 3000xtra giving e a series of quotes continuously in time. I believe this program is written in JAVA Code.
I would like to write a JAVA program that scan the value of these quotes and places on the screen an arrow pointing upwards if the quotes are increasing or an arrow pointing downwards if the quotes are decresing.
Is that possible?
Thank you fro your help! It would be very much appreciated
I am not a programmer sorry. I would love to become one though.
The program I would like to write should be external to the one running the quotes in real time. I would like to create a link to that program that identifies the quote I am interested in and gives me a pop-up message when certain conditions occur (increase...).
Or do you think I have to insert the code within the code of the program running the quotes? Is it possible to access that code?
I just want that when a certain quote goes down a pop-up message appears saying "Attention the price is decreasing". It doesn't seem such a complicated idea.
It's not a complicated idea but that doesn't mean the implementation won't be complicated.
Your main problem is you need to get access to the data stream so you can parse it and determine which prices are falling. We can't help you with that as we don't have access to the program you are currently using so we don't know how you can hook into the program to get the data.
