Hello

"i need to get the chart "

do you want to display yahoo charts at ur web site.. if this is what u r looking for .. u can simply add chart as an remote image from yahoo..

for example.. add this tag to ur html page where u want to show intraday chart for NASDAQ

<img src="http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/t?s=%5EIXIC">

where s=%5EIXIC is the yahoo code for nasdaq... u can replace this yahoo code with the desired stock's yahoo code..

hope it will help u out for your first question..

This would not be dynamic would it?  lets say it changes and goes up by doing this will it be up to date.

for yahoo news.. i don't think it is easy to get all this..

well we have written a program long back which was parsing yahoo news pages and checking for any new news with its link..  this program was storing news in a database located at my web site along with its detail links at yahoo server..

in this way.. i was displaying yahoo news at my site along with its detail link refreing to yahoo site.. but i repeate.. this is not a very easy thing to do becasue of ever changing layout of yahoo pages..

as i mentioned earlier.. these all news can be fetched and parsed to get news headlines and its respective links. I remember.. have written a vb application which were wokring like a crawler and going to each website at some interval to check any updated new articles.. parsing it and storing it in my db.
