How can an Arduino be used to show open/closed trading times of stock exchanges within a Time zone clock display? Answered
I'm making a clock display for my wall, with 3 clocks showing the times in NYC, London & Hong Kong. I want to use them partially to monitor each cities' stock exchange (opening & closing trading hours). Is there a way to integrate an Arduino to control two LEDs (1 green 1 red) and turn green for trading hours and Red for closed in each clock? 1 Arduino per clock I assuming.
I have experience with Ardunios and this project will include a Arduino (obviously) breadboard with jumper leads, xbees, LEDs, 9v (a set of all these things per clock I'm guessing), but this is beyond my knowledge base, and wanted to seek the help of those who know more.
lf battery life is going to be an issue (always illuminating an LED), 1 green light for open trading could also be used to save electricity. How can I create an trading hours database, reference GMT time and a script which uses all this data to make a true/false value for an LED to show the current open/closed status?
In short how can I bring the project to life? Is it even possible?
I would be very grateful for any help. Thanks.
