Market View

Using the FutureSource iFS Market View component, you can easily integrate a quick overview of how certain markets are doing.  This component integrates iFS thumbnail charts and quotes into a miniaturized quote board allowing for a quick look at the market.

 

Component URL: http://ifs.marketcenter.com/quotes/marketview.jsp

JavaScript URL: http://ifs.marketcenter.com/js/quotes/marketview.jsp

 

This component can be included via the iFS GET method using "MARKETVIEW" as the action variable.  For more information about using the iFS GET method please visit "Using the iFS GET Method".

Tips: Remember, this component does not transform into a chart or quote component. To efficiently use the MarketView component it is recommended you include it specifically via JavaScript using http://ifs.marketcenter.com/js/quotes/marketview.jsp as the source. If you would like the MarketView clicks to navigate to a different web page then use the specified clickthru parameters. Otherwise, it is recommended that you incorporate a iFS GET version of a quote board that can morph into a chart or quote board. This when, when the MarketView component refreshes the current page, the iFS GET component will change into the component that was requested.
