Is Yahoo! Finance API broken?

Is Yahoo! Finance API broken?

I was trying to use R quantmod to get historical stock price from Yahoo but get the error saying cannot open URL 'https://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/...'. When I manually type the address in the brower, I got following page https://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/ saying that "Yahoo will be right back... Thank you for your patience.....". Does this issue happen before? Will it be really solved in a short time?

 

Thank you very much.

Looks like they changed thier download link address without any warning.  The "Will be right back" error warning has been up for three days now.

Even using the YQL console doesn't work ..

For some reason I'm not able to link to yahooapis dot com, but if you use the link above you will see the *correct* way to link to Yahoo finance at the bottom of the page below "THE REST QUERY" (not using ichart... as shown in the post above). See also here: https://developer.yahoo.com/yql/guide/running-chapt.html

 

But then again, even this is not working right now.

This is an absolute joke. They need to fix this ASAP. No wonder people hate Yahoo..
