Re: has yahoo stopped history data api service?

Second the same question.   Does Yahoo even have a supported API?   YQL does not seem to work either.   Is it time to just forget about company for good?

For the Excel VBA world I have created a workaround which takes the old ichart.yahoo URL, converts it to something that works and writes out the historic data. It can be used for daily prices, weekly prices, monthly prices, dividends and splits. AdjClose prices are included.

 

Go to SignalSolver.com and follow the menus to EmulateURL. You can cut and paste the code, or download a working spreadsheet.

I have moved to MarketXLS after this change, much more reliable data.

This URL works (from clicking download data on historical data tab):

 

*Link Removed - See the community guidelines for more information.*

 

So they still allow download of historical price data. Maybe just the url's are updated.

Since the unfortunate demise of the Yahoo finance API I've been using Alpha Vantage.

 

It's a free stock data API and it works really well.

I did heard Yahoo Finance API discontinued.
I use MarketXLS as an alternative. It really helps me.

It has been awhile since I have looked at my "theoretical" stock investment spreadsheets, but when I tried to update them via the Yahoo Stock API, what a surprise!  Yahoo has taken it away from us!  Very disappointed.  My use of it was to simply track theoretical investment.

 

I have had my Yahoo email address for well over 10 years!  I am this close (-) to droping Yahoo all toghether.
