quantmod 0.4-8 on CRAN
I pushed a bug-fix release of quantmod to CRAN last night. The major changes were to
- getSymbols.FRED (#141)
- getSymbols.oanda (#144)
- getSymbols.yahoo (#149)
All three providers made breaking changes to their URLs/interfaces.
getSymbols.google also got some love. It now honors all arguments set via setSymbolLookup (#138), and it correctly parses the date column in non-English locales (#140).
There’s a handy new argument to getDividends: split.adjust. It allows you to request dividends unadjusted for splits (#128). Yahoo provides split-adjusted dividends, so you previously had to manually unadjust them for splits if you wanted the original raw values. To import the raw unadjusted dividends, just call:
rawDiv <- getDividends(“IBM”, split.adjust = FALSE)
Note that the default is split.adjust = TRUE to maintain backward-compatibility.
