I have downloaded an API called "financequotes" for Java (Link: http://financequotes-api.com/) and have attempted to use it for a project. It has been imported into my class path and all the methods run, however when I ask for a stocks details
Stock s = new Stock("INTC");
The creator of the API has answered - Here was the problem
The code doesn't have a request to Yahoo Finance yet. There's 2 alternative ways to fix this.
Request it through the YahooFinance static methods
Stock stock = YahooFinance.get("INTC"); stock.print();
Force a refresh of the stock's quote by using the getQuote(boolean refresh) method
Stock stock = new Stock("INTC"); stock.getQuote(true); stock.print();
This will automatically also load/refresh the statistics and dividend data.
