data is in JSON format, and the site seems to have a limit on monthly bandwidthat that you can use.

 

Perhaps the site can send the data in CSV format to save on the bandwidth, and also to provide a simpler interface to those who have been using the Yahoo API for so long.

The issue with tiingo is that there is no VIX info and no index info like GSPC etc.

 

Other than that it seems to be great.

Hello Yahoo,

https://ichart.yahoo.com/table.csv?s=KO&d=4&e=21&f=2017&g=d&a=4&b=15&c=2017&ignore=.csv
 
Please could you check the link and repair this intarface as soon as possible.

Do you have any fixed time for reparing this issue?

Thank you

tiingo does have an api that is pretty easy to get up and running, but the data is not on par with Yahoo.

 

I track my portolio against two tickers.  One is VOO (Vanguard's S&P 500 ETF) and the last dividend, from March 22, 2017, is missing.

The other GAA (Cambria Global Asset Allocation ETF) has no data since it transferred to the BATS exchange.

Hi All - This feature was discontinued by the Finance team and they will not be reintroducing that functionality. 

 

The Yahoo Finance Feedback Forum is the place where you can make product suggestions and provide feedback. We’re always trying to improve our products and use your feedback to inform changes.  Here’s the url: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/382977



They are trying to force people to use the web interface to bolster ad views and run all their CPU hogging scripts.

 

Well guess what all you Yahoo's.  Not going to happen.  We know how to script too.  We'll either script around your forced pathetic deceptive news article impersonating ads or go elsewhere.

 

I used to use Yahoo a lot.  Now not hardly at all.  Ad practices and CPU hogging scripts are way over the top.  "*.yahoo.com" has become yet another restricted site so ads and scripts are not loaded.

 

Yet another step on the path to irrelevance.

The API is not entirely gone. Charts and history are kaput, but intraday data is still readily accessible.

 

e.g. (minus  h t t p),

Would GoogleQuote <trading.cheno.net/downloading-google-finance-historical-data-with-python/> help (at least) historical quotes?

very sorry to hear that this will not be reactivated... the error on the screen says "enigneers are working on it" ...very confusing...

Any chance that this may be reintroduced anyway ???

Strange that this would be stopped suddenly without any warning

For anyone trying to find a workaround:

 

It does exist, but Yahoo no longer gives the correct adjusted close data if you try to download historical prices, So any library that is based in hacking the new interface will not be able to give you the correct data to be able to calculate the valid total returns unless it does something more than use the adjusted close prices that Yahoo provides.
