If you are like me checking the futures charts every day or so, you'll love this little widget that I made for you.
With this widget on your homescreen (*see how do I add a widget to my homescreen below if you don't know), you're just a click away for a quick look at the markets that really interests YOU!
★★★ 4x2 cells minimum (4 horizontal - 2 vertical) required by this widget ★★★
You can choose the following timeframes for your charts:
- 5 minutes charts
- Hourly charts
- Daily charts
- Weekly charts
Indices, Bonds, Currencies, Energy, Metals, Meats, Grains, Softs ... pick the ones you like (double click on the widget to enter your own settings):
10 Year Bond
30 Year Bond
★★★ CLICK on the widget => update and go to the next chart ★★★
★★★ DOUBLE CLICK => enter the widget settings ★★★
★★★ The widget does not update itself automatically for the moment (to save your battery life), I may add this option in a future version. You need to click on the widget to update the charts ★★★
You can resize the widget to your taste if you have Android 4.0 and above.
You can add more than one widget on the same or different homescreens. Enjoy!
I hope that you’ll enjoy this little widget and that it will save you time going through your favorite futures list...
