Hello anyone who uses the FinancialData function,
I used to be able to get the members of the S&P500 and the S&P100 using
and then the ticker symbols to do analyses. But both yesterday and
today, the function returns, what appears to be a dash or hyphen (-).
This also happens for industry members such as FinancialData["Books",
"Members"] and FinancialData["Drugs", "Members"], where I used the
examples in the built-in Help system, but foreign exchanges like
Frankfurt work fine.
Any thoughts on why this happens? I'm concerned because I have
notebooks that I share with students and colleagues, and the analyses in
them can't be done if the ticker symbols are not picked up!
