Hi everyone,

I am trying to retrieve data for some European stocks using FinancialData but I am having difficulties to find the corresponding ticker symbols for the stocks I am interested in.

As an example suppose I am interested in German Siemnens or Swedish Volvo stocks. I understand that I can use 

FinancialData["Exchanges"] 

to find the names of exchanges but I have not been able to find the ticker symbol for those stocks I am looking for. 

I wonder also what would be the general way of doing this if I just know the name of a company and the country where it is traded. Thanks.
