    Looks a good use of the metro interface but also limited by the same thing (metro sucks for multiple monitors as used by traders)

    True, but I cannot overcome that limitation. Metro cannot be run on multiple screens. There is no stopping you from throwing down more stock quotes on other monitors from say yahoo finance though.

    Waaaaaiiiittt, metro apps CANNOT be ran on multiple monitors?.... I thought it did.

    But I do have to say, that is pretty impressive that it took a mere five days to build the app.
