Ticker software that does event handling

    Hi there
    I am new to EliteTrader so forgive me if this may come off as a beginner. I have searched throughout the internet (including this forum) for ticker software that does the following:
    1. Tracks Yahoo Finance data for most advancing stocks of the day. I am also interested for options in this as well. If this is possible, I would like it to be done dynamically instead of providing a fix set of stock symbols in a portfolio form. It would be ideal if this could be done in real time.
    2. Raises an event for certain conditions to issue a system call on the Window command line.

    What software does this? Is it trading platforms or just simple stock ticker desktop software? is there any open source or freeware ones?
