I have been struggling for over an hour, reading documentation, experimenting, google searching for information on how to ask for the closing price of the NASDAQ index. I don't want a stock on that index, I want the daily closing prices of the index itself. No stock name, no entity, no entity class that I have tried seems to work. Is this even possible?

  • $\begingroup$ According to the documentation, this should work FinancialData["^IXIC"] but it does not. There are a lot of issues with FinancialData. e.g. see this. $\endgroup$ – Rohit Namjoshi Mar 3 '20 at 20:44
  • $\begingroup$ @RohitNamjoshi -- yes, I tried that and other variations. Some of those seems to be known quantities but nothing is produced reported by Missing[NotAvailable]. But, for others an error is produced saying that the entity name, class, etc. is not known. I have had problems with FinancialData before, enough that for awhile I went directly to Yahoo via Python/SQL scripts which seemed to work better but definitely not nice as if it were integrated into Mathematica. $\endgroup$ – K7PEH Mar 3 '20 at 22:14
  • $\begingroup$ Perhaps this might help: Financial data from Quandl in Wolfram Language using QuandlLink $\endgroup$ – Vitaliy Kaurov Mar 4 '20 at 5:06
