I noticed a while back that AlphaVantage has discontinued the BATCH_QUOTE function. So in the process of explaining how to work with the new GLOBAL_QUOTE function and manipulate its .csv downloads to get and tabulate multiple quotes together into one output file I thought I'd go ahead and incorporate using conky to display quotes as an option. Below is a link to my tutorial on how to do this with a BASH script and a little basic NIX like cut, tail, cat and output building of delimited files. You can basically replace the missing BATCH_ function of the API this way and build and columnize a single output from multiple outputs and wget operations. There are plenty of images and unfortunately I couldn't get imgur to work right today, who knows why, to display one. Check out the tutorial if you want to see how it looks.
