  1. A stock ticker is a report of the price of a certain stock.

    It is updated throughout the day. A change in the price is called a tick. Stock tickers also display the percentage of gain of a stock. In many cases, whenever a price of a stock is up, the ticker for it will be green. And whenever a stock is down, the color will be red. You know in your Apple Mac book if you slide to the right you will usually see a list of stock tickers for a number of the top stocks and also entire indexed.

    So there are stock tickers ensuring that every second of every day that the market is open there are continuously ne updated pricing information available.
