Does Mathematica 7 have sector index data available via the FinancialData function? I can get a list of sectors with this: FinancialData["Sectors"] and I can get prices on the iShares funds which track sector indexes i.e: Dow Jones U.S. Consumer Goods Index (IYK), Dow Jones U.S. Consumer Services Index (IYC), Dow Jones U.S. Select Home Construction Index (ITB), S&P Global Consumer Discretionary Index (RXI), S&P Global Consumer Staples Index (KXI), Dow Jones U.S. Energy Sector Index Fund (IYE), Dow Jones U.S. Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Index Fund (IEO), Dow Jones U.S. Oil Equipment & Services Index Fund (IEZ) .. but these only give data back (at best) to 2000. Can I get data for the indexes themselves? If so where do I find the symbol names? Thx.
