Excel Price Feed currently includes connectors to Yahoo Finance and IG Index for live financial data. This template uses Yahoo Finance stock data.
The decision to trade a stock is based on a number of factors, including the analysis of fundamental data. Excel Price Feed enables you to analyse live stock data in Excel and this template makes it very easy.
To get started, you need either a valid Excel Price Feed Trial or Subscription (if you have neither then you can start a free 10 day trial by pressing the big yellow button at the top of the page).

The template is very easy to use, it contains a bunch of data fields which all reference the stock ticker cell. Type the ticker of the stock you wish to analyse into cell C2 (If you don't know the ticker of the stock you can use the search function on the Configuration Pane):

As you can see in the image above, the price cell is highlighted (cell E2) and the formula can be seen in the formula bar (which references cell C2 which contains the stock ticker):
Unlike some other Add-in products, the formulas provided by Excel Price Feed are standard Excel formulas which you can copy/paste as usual and combine with other cells/formulas.
