Default Stock tag prefixes

Hi there,

Can someone explain how to add the stock tags and the different prefixes for the different markets.

Specifically, please cover PINKS, OTCs, London Stock Exchange stocks.

Cheers.

You need to find out how Yahoo displays the ticker- for instance, most AIM/LSE shares will have a .L after them as in RBS.L
Just go on yahoo finance and see what the ticker is for the company, place the exact quote inside (stock) put the ticker here (/stock) using square brackets rather than curly ones, or highlight it and click on the button et voila!
