How to make a widget?

I want to create a widget with finance data, such as economic calendar/currencies quotes, and I wonder what would be the source of that data? I don't want anyone's credentials on it.
I'm not a programmer, I'm certainly going to hire someone to do this, but I want to know where the data comes from because it has to be legal, fast and easy to implement.

Are there any software masters that could give me a professional advice?

Is it your data that you would be looking to grab. If so you could store it in a database, however if it's public data, you can pull it from there, but you may not be able to avoid credentials.

Hi Dan, and thanks for your reply.
Well, that's exactly the point - where to pull the data from.
I'm Ok with paying a certain amount for using the data. Any ideas for a financial data feed provider?

I don't know if this is what you're after:

pay: http://www.xignite.com/
free: http://www.daytradersbulletin.com/html/quote.html

You can also search for: "financial data feed provider", you'll get plenty of results to narrow down your search.

@jasonbaba - thank you for the advice, I certainly will hire the programmer.
But I'd like to make sure that the programmer will use a reliable (legal/steady) feed to create the widget.

then you should check what feed is right for you, be it free/paid and after you decide you'll provide him with everything he might need, this way you're on the legal side and don't let him choose a service that could be down in 3 months from now

at least, this is how I'd do it
