    Is it possible to write a module for a web application with the purpose of running a few tasks(ex: getting an updated stock quote) from time to time(recurrent) behind the curtain, without having to open a webpage?

    Yes, as a matter of fact I beleve the very forums we're using uses that concept.  Create a Module that creates a new System.Threading.Timer that points to a valid TimerCallback delegate in the IHttpApplication.Init method and dispose of the Timer in IHttpApplication.Dispose.
