Hello, I'm writing a J/Link Java program using data gathered through Mathematica's FinancialData. I only found samples where FinancialData is returning the information from one ticker. As each ticker fetch takes about half a second to complete, is it possible to build up a query to fetch a list of tickers in a single transmisson and have the service return back a completed list (as e.g. Google Finance) or do I have (as I suspect) to cycle ticker by ticker to complete the task (not economical in I/O)?
