Announcing YahooQuote, probably the easiest and most convenient API for
downloading (and caching) stockmarket prices off the internet.
I know it's not the first python module for pulling yahoo stockmarket
It's not even original code - the fetching/caching/parsing engine is
ripped verbatim (under the GPL) from Rimon Barr's 'pyq' utility. I've
just wrapped it into some cushy high-level classes.
But I do believe it's the most natural, pythonic and easily learned API
for accessing ticker prices, accumulating an historical database, and
using in other python programs (eg your favourite neural net
algorithm-du-jour for technical analysis).
