Oh, if any one is interested i programmed a Historical Data downloader a while back too. Its just that i found yahoo only lets you do about 6 months at at time, I programmed something that you could just click sp500 or ftse 100 etc, put a date to start and end and click ok. (it still uses yahoo data)

(- just in case you cant get this one going)

so you can download thousands of stock data in one go, there is a free piece of software out there already(called metastock) its a free trail of about 3 months i think, then u have to pay.

Anyway if any one is interested email me at : rickyjwhoop@hotmail.com

(donít worry I donít charge). I just have to check its all still working correctly first and if its still easy to deploy, havenít used it in a few months.
