I need a programmable marquee scrolling sign at least 2" long that I could get to display current stock and currency prices with little effort.  The models I have seen that say "programmable" range from $60 on up.  It needs to connect to a computer in order to program CURRENT stock and currency prices.  It's not clear what to search for here.  I could use some purchase suggestions.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

That's great software.  I'm looking for a hardware item though.
