What RCH/SMF functions would I use to retrieve Google Finance data, both current and historical, particularly indexes not available 24/7 from Yahoo? Examples would be:


INDEXDJX:DJI
INDEXDJX:DJT
INDEXDJX:DJU
INDEXSP:SP600
INDEXDJX:GDOW
INDEXSP:SPE350
INDEXSP:SPG1200
INDEXDB:3BNB



For these I seek closing prices for most recent close, 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, etc.

Sorry, but I've given up using current quotes from Google. Every time I
give out a formula, they change their page within a few months.

I'm not a fan of Google Finance. Google has clearly indicated it is not
committed to providing good data.

It's too much work to get historical data from Google for a specific point
in time, because you'd need to verify it was a trading day. Besides, those
numbers are worthless for indexes, because the historical numbers won't
have the context of dividends paid.

For something like the DJIA index, you could always look at the DIA ETF.

Can you use the price performance table at BarChart?

What would be a reliable source for currencies and commodities data (current and historical), and what RCH/smf functions would I then use to retrieve that information?

Sorry. No idea. I don't do anything with currencies or commodities.

For any ticker, how could I obtain the dates when the 52-week high and low occurred? What RCH/smf functions would I use?

How would I retrieve the dates of when the 52-week high or low occurred? What RCH/smf functions should be used for that information?

See the smfPricesBetween () function.

Randy, Is the smfGetYahooOptionQuote function still working? My spreadsheet has not been working for the past few days.


Thanks,


Tony

*sigh*

Yahoo changed the structure of the previous close and the header, which
contained the last price, change in $, and % change.

Everything else was still working though.

You should have given me a specific formula though. I checked bid and ask
prices, which still worked, and almost didn't look any further than that.

I've uploaded my changes with:

However, it's unofficial, as I want to see how it works when the market is
open, to make sure Yahoo doesn't have a different page structure between a
closed and open market.

Randy,
Sorry for the lack of information. I was trying to retrieve the "Last" price. Your fix worked great!

Your the man!

Anyone know what Yahoo is doing to their finance site? All of a sudden my portfolio has disappeared and I can't get anything with the smfGetYahooPortfolioView function. These guys may drive me to drink!
