Guide To Excel For Finance: Linking Yahoo! Finance and Other Outside Financial Data To Excel

Today, there is literally a multitude of ways to link external stock market data into Excel. The point of downloading data is to be able to customize and manipulate it to create your own formulas, which can be refreshed throughout the day as stocks change in value, or as often as you would like to refresh the steady stream of market information coming in.

Yahoo! Finance offers the capability to download basic stock price information into Excel. For users who have created their own portfolios, in Yahoo! Finance there is a link or "Download" function to save the information into an Excel workbook. Data that can currently be downloaded includes current stock prices, the daily high and low prices and daily trading volume.

Additionally, it is possible to download just about any data from the Internet into Excel. In Excel under the "Data" menu, choose to download data from the web or "From Web," which is the specific menu item in Excel. A separate pop-up will open and allow the input of literally any website. Returning to Yahoo! Finance and the "Statistics" portion for Textron Corp, yellow areas show where you can download specific data. Clicking on the download will populate the data into Excel. Below is a screen shot of information that was downloaded.
