Yahoo Finance Quote Problem

Yahoo Finance Quote Problem

Hi,

I’m a University student developing an application for investmentmanagement.

I am using Yahoo Finance to get the data.

There seems to be one problem.

Some invalid symbols don’t return a invalid stock symbolerror.

For example stock symbol “FOO” doesn’t return an error

Whereas “H9” does

http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=H9&f=snl1pdj1xe1

Why is this happening?

  • They both return "No such ticker symbol" as far as I can tell.
