Google Trends Sentiment Indices

This downloader is an update and extension of Tom Huggens' Permabear Sentiment Index downloader (Object 726: http://www.quantshare.com/item-726-permabear-sentiment-index) and related downloaders,
and is based on that as well as code/discussion etc from Stack Overflow (maybe especially http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4986758/oauth-google-trends-download-csv-file) and possibly other sources (C# doc., etc).

The general idea is that we can download weekly Google search statistics for certain search terms, and so gauge the sentiment of the public.
The downloader will download such statistics for one or more user-specified search terms, and for each week add the numbers corresponding to the search terms.

Installation:
1. Download and install the downloader
2. Make a directory on your computer where the downloader may write "temporary files" (eg "C:\temp")
3. Go to "Download Manager/Update Download Item", and in "Fields":
a) Insert your Google email/username (exclude @gmail.com) and password
b) Change the query string as needed, with comma between each search term.
It is by default set up for "Permabear Index": "Roubini,Peter Schiff,Marc Faber,Nassim Taleb" (correct with only surname for Roubini?)
c) Change the symbol name as needed (all characters must be allowed in file names, so no "/", ":" etc).
d) Set "work_dir" to the path of the temp directory (eg "C:\temp")

Known limitations:
1. Google restricts the number of downloads per day to an unknown number, possibly depending on download frequency in a short time period.
If this happens, the downloader will fail, and the temporary file (e.g C:\temp\report_^GOOGLE_TRENDS_PERMABEAR.csv) will be a short file including the following string:
"You have reached your quota limit. Please try again later." (can also be seen using the "Parser" button and pressing "Next" a few times).
2. Google may restrict the number of search terms to a specific limit (5?). TODO: Let downloader handle this by using several queries automatically.

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.
