Trouble with Dow Jones

Mon Sep 13, 2010 1:06 pm

Until recently I have had no problems getting stock info for:
Symbol: ^DJI
Description: DOW JONES

When I do a stock symbol look up at Yahoo I get the info OK
http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=^DJI

My log shows:
------------------------------ Save Log ------------------------------
9/13/2010 12:45:35 PM Sx: http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quote.csv?s= ... I&f=l1c1d1
9/13/2010 12:45:39 PM Rx: 12137.71,+40.62,"9/13/2010"
2274.14,+31.66,"9/13/2010"
129.07,+1.08,"9/13/2010"
24.3999,+0.5499,"9/13/2010"
29.94,-0.01,"9/13/2010"
61.23,+0.48,"9/13/2010"
266.84,+3.43,"9/13/2010"
481.577,+5.437,"9/13/2010"

----------------------------------------------------------------------

There is just a linefeed with no values for return of ^DJI

This can be duplicated very easily.

Anti-capitalists shut down the Dow Jones over the weekend :-)

I think the issue is at Yahoo. If you just query the one symbol

http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quo ... I&f=l1c1d1

You get "Missing Symbols List" returned. Their quote.csv page doesn't understand the symbol.
