ScreenCloud Stocks App Guide

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 app makes it easy to share the latest stock prices direct to your digital screens, powered by real-time information from IEX Cloud. This allows you to show the latest stock prices on your digital screens in an office, reception, school, or business environment.

With the ScreenCloud Stocks app you can:

  • Choose multiple different stock options from companies such as American Airlines, Cisco, and Starbucks.
  • Receive new stock information in real-time.
  • Choose a theme for your display, or create your own with custom colors and branding.

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s Stocks app

1.1. Get started by logging into your ScreenCloud account here and choosing the ScreenCloud App Store from the left-hand menu.

2. Choose your Stocks to show

2.1. Next, you will need to determine which stocks you wish to show and find their Stock tickers (the acronym used for that company) in order to display them on your screen. There are plenty of online sources that list the tickers for popular US stocks, or you can use https://iextrading.com/.
