After today's remarkable 10% gain by Apple, I thought it would be good to add some highlighting to the main Watchlist block on the home page. 

  • Green highlights indicate a stock that has more than a 5% gain.
  • Red highlights indicate a stock that has more than a 5% loss.

If you'd like some other highlighting options, just let us know.

Some additions to the 500 Foods Watchlist. 

  • Currencies:  The USD/CAD and CAD/USD rates have been added.
  • Indices:  The DJIA, NASDAQ and S&P500 have been added.

Importantly, none of these come from the IEX Cloud interface but rather as a direct pull from the Yahoo! Finance website, and are updated every 30 minutes as well.  Why is this?  Indices aren't available at all via IEX and they don't plan on making them available any time soon due to licensing and fee structure issues. IEX does offer currency data, but not on the free tier that we currently use. Should we subscribe to one of the premium tiers in future, perhaps to get more timely data for the Watchlist, then we'll change the currency data feed to use IEX as well.
