    Hello friends,

    Do anyone of you here know a reliable way to download the stock quotes and and also the Historical data of various Scripts from the free Yahoo Finance servers , for free ?

    There are some softwares around which does it for you but those are not available for free.

    So,anyone here who might be using a Freeware to download Stock Quotes/Data's from the Yahoo Finance Server ? Or any way to download the datas in .csv format ot ASCII format to feed them to other wares ?

    Please come up with your ideas if anyone is already doing it ...

    Try Equis Downloader. Its free visit www.traderji.com forum and you can find out how to use it. You will have to change the symbol in the data to one which corresponds to yahoo for eg. ACC to ACC.NS or ACC.BO

    Thanks troubleshooter for that nice site.

    And shreyadr, I installed the adware version of Medved Quote tracker, but is having problems while configuring it with the Indian Market, but it acts just fine for the US markets.
    If you use it yourself,can you please help how to download the Historical data for the Indian market [BSE/NSE] as i don't find them in it's list of Servers or so..
    But anyway, thanks for the ware..
