yahoo.finance.option_contracts

Unable to query for symbol SPY. All other symbols that I have tested with same querystr work. It is currently a problem (as of 28Feb2014). I have observed similar errors in the past and they usually self-correct but too late to get older data. Who/how do I reach at Y! for more information?

SELECT * FROM yahoo.finance.option_contracts WHERE symbol="SPY"

returns

  • I'm having the same issue with GOOG. All other symbols work, but only GOOG returns no result. Stuck and lost here...
