Can't get historical data

Can't get historical data

I can't get any historical data for the S&P Total Market Index. I can pull up the index on your site but when I click on the historical data tab it only has today's closing price. Then when I try to change the date range to max it says that I can't have a starting date after the end date (for the record my start date was 01/1/2008 and my end date was 11/7/2018). Then when I click apply it doesn't load anything, not even today's price! What's going on?

Re: Can't get historical data

For the record, I'm using a mac laptop on yahoo finance in a web browser. Your site made me include a label but there were only four available and none of them applied. I'm pretty confused about that part but it's not important.

Hi @cfkwrh - we do not currently display that data due to licensing limitations.  I have added this to our data suggestion list for possible inclusion in our data feed in the future.  Thank you.
