We require a program that can automatically download historical price information from Yahoo! Finance webpages. The program will take three inputs: ticker symbol, start date, and end date. It will then collect all prices & dividends available on Yahoo! from start date through end date. (Please see link for example: <[url removed, login to view]>) Output will be parsed on Excel spreadsheet. Dates should be converted to Excel date format.
Yahoo! sometime skips dates at the beginning and end of a page, so a few download trials may be necessary to collect all price information.
Minor modifications may be requested later--such as downloading more than one symbol at a time.
