News Ticker

The HTML to link to this page
 

A news ticker is an electronically transmitted scroll that conveys up-to-date news information. Avid news watchers are usually quick to recognize a news ticker as an electronic banner that sets across the television screen. News ticker information is usually highly laconic and brief. This is mainly due to the scarcity of news ticker scroll space, as well as the abundance of incoming data. In addition to up-to-the-minute news, a news ticker is also designed to relay the latest market data. This news ticker data reflects the most recent changes in stock prices, as well as other new market information. To streamline the communication process, the latest market statistics appear on a news ticker as stock symbols. The same news ticker stock symbols are applied uniformly across all media. News ticker data is broadcast on virtually all news channels, including CNN, CNBC, FOX and many more. Today a news ticker can also be transmitted via Internet, and thus can be found in virtually all visually dynamic media.
