As I said in my initial review of FreeStockCharts.com, I think it is hands down the best free stock chart software online. Not just because the charts and data are in Real-Time, not delayed by 15-20 mins, but you can do more on FreeStockCharts.com than many paid stock chart software. However, at MarketHEIST we're always on the prowl for the best new stock market stuff for investors and traders, so if you've built a taller building or faster car (per se), let us know and we'll review it!
So when we were developing our new MarketWIRE Live Stock Market Digest and we were adding FreeStockCharts to that site, we decided to make a WordPress Plugin and let anyone with a WordPress site, whether trader or just market enthusiasts, to add live stock charts to their WordPress sites.
