Documentation

NOTE

This has been changed to use alphavantage.co because Google Finance does not seem to work reliably anymore (IPs get blocked and it just plain out doesn't work)

You can get a free API key with a limited number of queries per second and so this has been tweaked to just refresh every 60s now.

Then just put the api-key into alphavantage-creds.txt to get it to work
