No, not at the moment.

However, if you make one, we'll gladly put it in our resource center ;) :D

As i have been involved and made some live stock widgets, the problem is not the script... but the source to get the data :D

I built a dynamic one for a client. I use the built in default vivvo xml_grabber inconjunction with YQL (Yahoo Query Langauge) and some vte Variable Modifiers to produce dynamic live output like this:

NOTE: Its the "Market Info" Module at the top of the Right Hand Column. This only displays for Public Company Profiles.

NOTE2: They only wanted those particular items, but anything displayed on the full yahoo profile for a particular stock symbol is accessable and formatable.

I dont want to promote competitors at all, since Im a vivvo user and I wont change vivvo for any of the cms available out there. I've done extensive research and vivvo is unbeatable, even against free cms.
This been said, I think vivvo could add more clients by adding some easy to implement widgets and plugins. Tiny things that Im sure will attract more customers. Others have implemented for free and vivvo can just adapt them.
This will make people more happy and loyal. I agree vivvo script is unique and complex editing should be paid for and I will keep paying as vivvo must grow to keep providing excellent service but I think some of these plugins like stock are a must and should be added to the list of more complex plugins already in the resource area.
Go here:
demo.gavick.com/
take a look at the stock and the weather.
For weather I use vivvo yahoo, but see that one .
Stock using google api I think is a must for vivvo, like in the address above.
The same stock widget based on google api here:
extensions.joomla.org/extensions/financial/stock-market/9986
As you surf through these pages you will see some silly stuff vivvo should also add.
I recommend everybody using vivvo not even wasting time trying other cms, but the stock market one is a must, i hope you can use example above as a guide and have stock available soon.
Thanks,

There are some pretty sweet data feeds if you are willing to fork out some $$ lol

I was using the Google API until I ran across YQL. Now I get everything I need by forming a dynamic YQL URL to use within the xml_grabber. Since my needs are driven by the individual symbol for each company's profile, this works perfectly.

There are Sooooo many different ways YQL can be used to forum various types of stock related modules.

Thanks. I agree with you, and we constantly work on adding more plugins and widgets to our Resource Center. Stock market widgets are basically fairly easy to add, since most of them are shared as classic XML feeds, however we'll see to have this as widget as well.

has a free stock module for a vivvo competitor that you can download for free and look at the code (though it is joomla based).

Something like this would be great for vivvo -- and would open up the market for it towards stock oriented media sites.

I've done a couple now using YQL (Yahoo Query Langauge) and the built in vivvo box_xml_grabber along with varible Modifiers.

This one is a ticker type: http://www.newswire.net/newsroom/Investor

This one is an individual companies Profile (Right Hand Column Module: http://www.newswire.net/newsroom/index.php/author/bioelectronics/

YQL is fairly easy to use and works flawlessly with vivvo and vivvo's built in core elements such as the box_xml_grabber. The variables can easily be modified to output in many different ways.

Best of all, its FREE, its LIVE and its from Yahoo which is fully supported, has all the companies (not just some of them), their data is current, always updated and has numerous data elements for your use (100's of them).

Awesome work.

Can you post a link to Yahoo and maybe some sample code with the XML grabber?

Here's one that I put together a while back. I think the little 'Click to refresh' option is sweet. :cool:
