Is Yahoo! Finance API broken?

Re: Is Yahoo! Finance API broken?

I know there is a big focus on historical price data but if anyone who'd like to access real-time and historical financial news, you can access CityFALCON's API for free for personal purposes and a small fee for commercial use.  See more info here -*Link Removed - See the community guidelines for more information.*

Shame about this. I've been trying to work around this for hours today but seems it's not easily possible. Shame as I've been using this data since 2003!! for my own use. I really don't see why they're evening providing the data at all anymore as nobody is really going to scroll through pages of this stuff, or save away file after file manually.Being able to make a single simple request to get the data was great.

 

Oh well. I've grown less found of Yahoo and my final reason to continue accessing the site has been removed.

I've also been using another service for a while but unfortunately only daily data available.

real-chart.finance.yahoo.com is down too but download.finance.yahoo.com seems to be OK for now. 

 

 

I've been using this script for years to download the week's closing prices/NAVs each weekend, it dumps the results into a .csv file. Still seems to work:

I can see many people post links to external sources which are blocked automatically by Yahoo.

 

If you want to post a link, please, wrap it into the code block like this:

 

https://www.google.com.au

Such a way bypasses link check.

 

Thanks.

I have a free web-based financial data API you can use. It covers about 35k tickers - US stocks, Chinese stocks, mutual funds, etfs, etc,

https://api.tiingo.com

 

I'm a former algo trader who wants data to be accessible to all. You can see the main platform here

https://www.tiingo.com

Hope this is helpful! My contact info is on the site if you have any questions or you can post in the chat

Hello!

 

Does Tiingo also have index information? Which symbol do I use for that? I also need the VIX close.

 

Wondering if those are included in the database

 

Thanks
