Yahoo Finance Badges Pre-Beta

The folks at Yahoo Finance provided me early access to Yahoo Finance Badges. The badges enable you to post financial data, such as stock quotes, charts and news on your site. It’s a closed beta, so people can’t generally get this. But here is a step-by-step walk through of setting up a Yahoo Finance badge, for when this comes widely available.
