A simple yahoo quote loader described in the article at


The example requires that you have a database. For this example MySQL is assumed.

See the init.sql and table.sql files in the sql directory. The init.sql will create a quote database, a test user and the quote table required for the example.

Example Usage

With your quote database setup the following should download and load stock quotes from Yahoo.

  1. Build standalone version with 'lein ubuerjar'
  2. From the command line enter 'java -jar target/quote-loader-1.0.0-standalone.jar' followed by one or more stock symbols.
  3. For example, java -jar target/quote-loader-1.0.0-standalone.jar goog aapl
  4. Look in your quote table. select * from quote where symbol='goog'; select * from quote where symbol='aapl


Currently there is no error checking for valid symbols so for now only put in valid symbols.
