I notice that spullara just committed my fork of yql-tables a few days ago. This was the first change in yql-tables since August 14, 2009 when yahoo.finance.quotes worked fine.
I never sent him a pull request although about a month ago I asked him for comments on my fork but never got any response. Perhaps my fork inadvertently broke something in the yql-tables/yahoo/finance/ subtree?
use "http://github.com/spullara/yql-tables/raw/d60732fd4fbe72e5d5bd2994ff27cf58ba4d3f84/yahoo/finance/yahoo.finance.quotes.xml" as quotes; select * from quotes where symbol in ("YHOO","AAPL","GOOG","MSFT")
Thanks so much for the help. I'm going to build an application that needs to pull the stock info but now I'm at a bit of a standstill since I'm not sure what the status of this is. For now I'll work with the temporary solution THANKS AGAIN SO MUCH!
Is there anywhere we can ask the Yahoo developers?
These tables let you use YQL to get stock information from Yahoo Finance that isn't available via the CSV api (or the yahoo.finance.quotes data table). One table gives you a list of all Yahoo Finance Sectors and their Industries. Another gives you all the stock symbols within an Industry. The last table gives you a stock's Exchange, Country, Sector, Industry, etc. given its symbol. See Example Queries for the kinds of things you can do.
