Hello

I'm downloading daily stock quotes from Yahoo server and usually everything works fine. But today there was no data downloadable from yesterday session.
Anyone else having this problem?

You might have been hitting a Yahoo! server which isn't up to date. It happens with free web-based data sources, Y! is no exception.

Try again later. As an alternative, try using a network card linked to a different provider - chances are it could get you connected to a different server. With WLD6, various data providers have been developed over time (e.g. BBFree, MSN, QuoteMedia, Google, TeleCharts) to serve as backup.

Lastly, you could contact Yahoo! but since their support can take days, the issue itself might be gone for good tomorrow or later today.

I'm having download issues from the Yahoo data connector today as well (note, this is not thru ML or any other 3rd party connector). When I tried refreshing my data sets (daily bars) from a backup computer that I don't use often, I did get data from Yahoo but only thru 4/26 (today is 4/28), so the server is up but data not refreshed.

Anyone else seeing this, and Eugene/Cone, do you have any tricks to suggest to get at this data?

Yes, saw that. I tried your suggestion of switching both physical PCs and ISPs, hoping I'd hit another server. I'll just sit tight and hope it refreshes soon, maybe look for a paid data service that won't have these outages

My Y! data also refreshes thru 04/26 so you're not alone. You might even want to write Y! support in cases like this (which can take long to resolve) but using the available alternative sources (BB Free, MSN, Google, QuoteMedia) is something that's possible right now.

Just tried again and I'm getting a mix of 4/27 and 4/28 data, so it looks like the problem is on its way to resolution

There really was a Yahoo! server issue yesterday.
