XF 1.5 Header external adder

Hi guys,

I couldn't find this by search.
Want to add a ticker to my header, but it continues to mess with the nav menu strip.

As you can see from the pics, the nav strip is shortened after adding it:

the code used:

normal code.jpg

Yet, if I move the code, then the nav menu goes to the top with the header info below:

menu to top sshot.jpg

code menu to top.jpg

Please advise how to fix this and get the nav bar/menu to stay full length rather than being truncated

Thanks !!
