Raspberry Pi LED Stock Ticker

I want to build a stock ticker for my dad. It will be powered with a raspberry pi and displayed on two 16x32 LED displays ([url removed, login to view]). I already have all the hardware, cables and power adapters to run everything, and I will build a permanent housing so that he can leave it on his desk.

The software needs to be able to pull live stock prices from the internet every 10 minutes and display the stock symbol, price and % change, for each stock, in a scrolling message on the LED displays. It will also need to color code the stock so that if it is trading higher, it is green, if its lower then red. He is constantly trading stocks, and from different exchanges around the world, so it has to be easy for him to add/remove different stocks from the list that will be displayed. A bonus would be if it would also display the company logo with the stock.

Think something like this [url removed, login to view],1308423346,3/[url removed, login to view]

but in a scrolling form.
