I'm trying to create a download item to pull in historical mutual fund data. I've setup the url, and parser however when importing the data I get an error stating they symbol cannot be empty. I see a database item for the symbol but since the symbol is the same for all items and is only present in the URL I don't understand how it should be set. I've tried looking at some of the other download items but it isn't obvious. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Best Answer
If you want to download data for only one Mutual fund then type the symbol name under the "Symbol" Column and on the same row where you have set the download URL.

If you want to download data for several Mutual funds and the symbol name is available in the URL, then create a new field and set the field type to "Symbol".

- Type the URL:
- Click on "0 field(s)"
- Click on Add field
- Set the field name to "s", the value to "any value - for testing purpose" and the type to "Symbol".

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
