    It's okay here, I think, but it's tough to decipher what's being asked. Writing out the actual code you are trying would probably help. – jonsca Feb 18 '18 at 8:54

onEdit(e) and onChange Triggers(Both simple and Installable) will not trigger unless a human explicitly edits the file. In your case, Your seem to be getting value from an external source (specifically, finance data).

Script executions and API requests do not cause triggers to run. For example, calling FormResponse.submit() to submit a new form response does not cause the form's submit trigger to run.

Script executions and API requests do not cause triggers to run. For example, calling Range.setValue() to edit a cell does not cause the spreadsheet's onEdit trigger to run.

For update in spreadsheet itself,Please refer here to use a script.
