    Source for stock market basic historical data

    can anyone tell me how I quickly can find historic closing market values on the Dow, NASDAQ, and S&P? I just want to put in the date and get the close. I didn?t see quickly how to do that on Yahoo or MorningStar. Can anyone tell me?

    You can get daily values from Yahoo using YQL.

    http://meumobi.github.io/stocks%20ap...nance-api.html

    For historical data you can use something like:


    http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/tabl...=d&ignore=.csv


    To get MSFT where the FROM date is: &a=11&b=15&c=2016 and the TO date is: &d=11&e=19&f=2016 Be careful, fields a and d use index of month and not number, then for December use 11, and for January use 00

    If didn't mean individual stocks then the Dow is ^DJA and I forget the other two, but you can google it.
