    You can use yahoo's symbol lookup like so:
    Where query is the company name.

    You'll get something like this in return:
    YAHOO.Finance.SymbolSuggest.ssCallback({"ResultSet":{"Query":"ya","Result":[{"symbol":"YHOO","name": "Yahoo! Inc.","exch": "NMS","type": "S","exchDisp":"NASDAQ"},{"symbol":"AUY","name": "Yamana Gold, Inc.","exch": "NYQ","type": "S","exchDisp":"NYSE"},{"symbol":"YZC","name": "Yanzhou Coal Mining Co. Ltd.","exch": "NYQ","type": "S","exchDisp":"NYSE"},{"symbol":"YRI.TO","name": "YAMANA GOLD INC COM NPV","exch": "TOR","type": "S","exchDisp":"Toronto"},{"symbol":"8046.TW","name": "NAN YA PRINTED CIR TWD10","exch": "TAI","type": "S","exchDisp":"Taiwan"},{"symbol":"600319.SS","name": "WEIFANG YAXING CHE 'A'CNY1","exch": "SHH","type": "S","exchDisp":"Shanghai"},{"symbol":"1991.HK","name": "TA YANG GROUP","exch": "HKG","type": "S","exchDisp":"Hong Kong"},{"symbol":"1303.TW","name": "NAN YA PLASTIC TWD10","exch": "TAI","type": "S","exchDisp":"Taiwan"},{"symbol":"0294.HK","name": "YANGTZEKIANG","exch": "HKG","type": "S","exchDisp":"Hong Kong"},{"symbol":"YAVY","name": "Yadkin Valley Financial Corp.","exch": "NMS","type": "S","exchDisp":"NASDAQ"}]}})​

    Which is JSON and very easy to work with.

    An Advanced lookup system (similar to how it is on yahoo financials) is already in the works.

    Will it be included in Stock Trader or will this be a seperate add-on?

    I asked for the symbol lookup in another thread and got that answer:
    In the thread you state:
    Am I correct to asume that symbol lookup will be included? And if, what is the estimated time frame for it?

    The "requested" Symbol look up functionality (if/when complete) will be included as part of the core addon and won't be a 2nd addon that one has to purchase (which is what he wanted to know). I can't give out any specific or estimated time frames when I don't have what I need to do that. I am not far enough into the R&D process yet to give a time estimate. When I have the information I need to give out time lines, you will be one of the first to know as you will be receiving beta versions to test.

    prototype works like a charm.... disregard what the top area looks like in this image tho haha.. Need to put the Autocomplete search on the left hand side because of the drop down data for the search..

    Just need to finish up the redesign of the top area and I will release the next version which will include this. Going to mark this as implemented.

    UPDATE: I've enhanced the autocomplete slightly to filter out results that are returned from the data source that are NOT Valid. ie, if you have your options set to do UK only stocks, then results from other exchanges will be filtered out.

    UPDATE: Fixed the "white space" bug so multiple word searches are now doable without the plus sign.. ie

    before to search for multi words.. the+bank+of you can now type the bank of

    Also, I've further enhanced autocomplete to filter out "Funds" and "Indices" so now only "Equity" will be returned.
