: I have been using Infobeat for daily prices for some length of time (2 years?). About 3 months ago or so they went throough some "operational interruptions" where service was gone for days at a time. It would come back and then go away. I thought they had disappeared.
: When they did come back they had changed the format where the activity date was 8/25/2000 (every day) and the prices were carried out to 12 or so decimal digits or so (e.g., DJIA, $10725.7998046875, GM, $51.5629997253418). "Eventually" they corrected the date, but the decimals are still wrong. I emailed several times, but have given up. They are non-responsive to my emails.
: Additionally, you have to be careful that they run the extract "late enough" to have the closing numbers -- too frequently they show some interim value or yesterday's,or $0.
: Because of these errors I am unwilling to import their numbers automatically. It is a shame as I know of no other source for automatically receiving daily prices.
