Re: the charts!?

Yahoo's servers occasionally return nonsensical data now, so the software has to catch these cases and quietly skip the problem stocks. This was the problem both last week and this week.

Charts are almost finished updating, and look OK [more]

Re: Charts are on their way

Mike,
We appreciate all the work you do to keep it up and running.


You're welcome, SubGuy and everyone else who uses the charts. I use them myself, not very often, but enough that I'd really miss them.

Charts are on their way

Sorry all, had some more trouble with Yahoo, which killed last week's chart update and has delayed this week's.

I found a Python script on Github that downloads historical data with the new Yahoo authentication structure, and after [more]

Re: Yahoo! says they fixed the adjusted close pr

Mike - Have a question to ask, would it be possible to reduce the lowest duration, currently at 16 years to say 10 years or 5 years. Admittedly, that increases the number of stocks that will be listed, other that that I don't see the [more]

Re: Price history storage

Not your computer, Mike's script failed for some reason.

It looks I needed to update my "crumb". If this has to happen once a month it's going to be quite a slog...
