A slackbot that retrieves stock quote information from Yahoo Finance given a ticker symbol in Slack.
There are two ways to use stockbot. The first is to input the trigger word ('quote' by default) and one or more stock tickers. You'll get back a separate reply for each stock listed.
The second usage is to enter the word 'range', a ticker symbol, and a start and end date. Stockbot will return the average stock price over that date range.
In both cases, the trigger word must be the first word in the message. It is not case sensitive.
