Recently the Yahoo site has started using symbols with
embedded characters. The ones I see come from the
Toronto Stock Exchange. An example is "PVE-UN.TO"
on the YAHOO site which is actually "PVE.UN" on the
Toronto Exchange (www.tsx.com).
MAS gives an error message when it tries to retrieve
this data and any other symbol in this format. Other
symbols that do not have the "-" come through from the
Toronto exchange without problem.
I also note that YAHOO now only provides the last 5
days of data for the symbols in this format.
I have studied the available MAS documentation but
have not been able to identify where the problem is.
I suggest this needs to be corrected as there must be
more symbols out there that are/will cause problems.
