Stock Ticker Digital Display Installed in Financial Trading Room
Look up from the Jackson Commons in the Micron Business and Economics Building and you’ll see the lights of the new stock ticker digital display.
Installed recently by On-Demand Digital Display, Inc., the board goes across the Dykman Financial Trading Room on the second floor. This addition finishes off the Trading Room, thanks to the generous support of alumnus Allen Dykman.
“The display is full color and capable of two data streams,” says John Orlovich, P.E. of JSN Enterprises, LLC, who is a consultant on the job. “The ticker will display the status of the COBE student managed fund,” Orlovich explained. “The display will create excitement.”
The ticker is currently programmed to display the Dow 30, NYSE Movers and Shakers, indexes for DJIA, COMP and SPY; economic data – CPI, GDP and housing starts; foreign currencies; and a financial news feed.
The ticker will run from 8:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
