b. Edit Widget by activating the Jiggle mode
c. Choose the script, set it to run script.

Hi, I found a bug, with the composite indexes the widget shows a ^/green value also if the index is negative.

For example add NDAQ (nasdaq) and now is -0.36% but the widget shows only the value without the symbol +/- and it’s in green like a positive value but should be red.

Probably is due how to indexes work that use point as a value instead of money. I haven’t checked the json query to yahoo and if this is fixable.

Anyway for normal stocks and cryptos works perfectly! Thanks
