Trouble with Dow Jones

Postby jjjukebox » Mon Sep 13, 2010 12:06 pm

Until recently I have had no problems getting stock info for:
Symbol: ^DJI
Description: DOW JONES

When I do a stock symbol look up at Yahoo I get the info OK
http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=^DJI

My log shows:

266.84,+3.43,"9/13/2010"
481.577,+5.437,"9/13/2010"

----------------------------------------------------------------------

There is just a linefeed with no values for return of ^DJI

This can be duplicated very easily.

Anti-capitalists shut down the Dow Jones over the weekend :-)

I think the issue is at Yahoo. If you just query the one symbol

http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quote.csv?s=^DJI&f=l1c1d1

You get "Missing Symbols List" returned. Their quote.csv page doesn't understand the symbol.
