Package BatchGetSymbols is soft-deprecated in favor of yfR. See this for my motivation in writing a new R package. In practice, this means that BatchGetSymbols is no longer maintained besides the correction of major bugs. All efforts goes to the development of yfR.

While BatchGetSymbols will be be available in CRAN in the near future, my plan is to remove it from CRAN and archive it in Github once yfR becames more stable.


BatchGetSymbols is a R package for large-scale download of financial data from Yahoo Finance. Based on a set of tickers and date ranges, the package will download and organize the financial data in the tidy/long format.


Main features:


# CRAN (official release)

# Github (dev version)
