get_alfred_series("INDPRO", "test",
                  observation_start = "2013-03-01", observation_end = "2013-03-30",
                  realtime_start = "2015-02-02", realtime_end = "2015-02-02")
# Wrapper for getting only most recent releases 
get_fred_series("INDPRO", "indpro", observation_start = "2009-03-01", observation_end = "2009-03-01")
