?Looking for a little help here.
I harvest historical data for 200-500 stocks. I remember there is an 'R' script that can pull the data from yahoo finance and compose it into a .txt file
Wondering if anyone knew where I could get a copy of the script. I should be able to process the .txt file into excel without too much difficulty.
Grabbing this data individually is taking me 8-24 hours of work. This should shorten that to 30 minutes or so. I know this isn't really a technical question, but I could use some help/info.
