Knowledge Base | How to Load Historical Stock Prices from MSN Money to Excel

Contents

Overview

MSN Money publishes historical and intraday prices from a lot of exchanges.

However, you may load data using undocumented URLs of a web service that returns historical and intraday prices in JSON.

URLs for daily, weekly, and monthly historical prices:

http://finance.services.appex.bing.com/Market.svc/ChartAndQuotes?symbols=MSFT&chartType=1y&isEOD=True&isCS=true&isVol=true

http://finance.services.appex.bing.com/Market.svc/ChartAndQuotes?symbols=MSFT&chartType=5y&isEOD=False&isCS=true&isVol=true

http://finance.services.appex.bing.com/Market.svc/ChartAndQuotes?symbols=MSFT&chartType=max&isEOD=True&isCS=true&isVol=true

URLs for 1, 5, and 15-minute intraday prices:

http://finance.services.appex.bing.com/Market.svc/ChartAndQuotes?symbols=MSFT&chartType=1d&isEOD=False&isCS=true&isVol=true

http://finance.services.appex.bing.com/Market.svc/ChartAndQuotes?symbols=MSFT&chartType=1D_5M&isEOD=False&isCS=true&isVol=true

http://finance.services.appex.bing.com/Market.svc/ChartAndQuotes?symbols=MSFT&chartType=5d&isEOD=False&isCS=true&isVol=true

You may use tickers like 126.1.MSFT.NAS for stocks and 245.20.GBPUSDLITE for currencies.

You may use our several products to load these data into Microsoft Excel in several ways, for free.

WEB.RTD is another cool tool that allows refreshing data from 20 URLs for free.

You may start Formula Builder, paste the URL, and click Go.

Formula Builder loads data and creates RTD formulas that you copy into Excel spreadsheets:

WEB.RTD refreshes data automatically with the period specified by a formula like:

=RTD("web.rtd",,$A$1,"RTD_REFRESHINTERVAL",24*60*60)

WEB.RTD is a cool tool as you may load almost everything that you see on the web.

However, you should know data URLs. For historical prices, use the MSN Money web service URLs shown above.

Loading Historical Prices from MSN Money into Microsoft Excel using Market.rtd

WEB.RTD, described above, is a universal parser and RTD server for Microsoft Excel.

Contrary, Market.rtd is a specialized RTD server for loading data from Yahoo Finance, Google Finance, and MSN Money.

You may also create and copy formulas using Formula Builder.

However, Formula Builder contains predefined data providers that is much better.

You may select how to organize formulas, by rows or by columns, and paste them into Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

Then you format your model and get refreshable results like this:

You may get a lot of data using Market.rtd with the regular Microsoft Excel RTD formulas like these:

=RTD("market.rtd",,"MsnMoneyHistoricalPrices","MSFT","2016-12-30","Open")
=RTD("market.rtd",,"MsnMoneyHistoricalPrices","MSFT","2016-12-30","Close")
=RTD("market.rtd",,"MsnMoneyHistoricalPrices","MSFT","2016-12-30","PrevClose")

You may customize the refresh interval using the formula like:

=RTD("web.rtd",,"MsnMoneyHistoricalPrices","RTD_REFRESHINTERVAL",24*60*60)

The free edition of Market.rtd allows refreshing data for 10 tickers (in all opened workbooks).

However, you may change tickers. So, you may build your models for free.

Moreover, Market.rtd includes a lot of examples for available providers. So, you may adapt them to your needs easily.

Loading Historical Prices from MSN Money into Microsoft Excel using Market.csv

As described above, you may load historical prices into Microsoft Excel directly.

However, if you load intraday prices, you have data for the last trading day or several last trading days.

If you need an intraday history for a larger period, there is only the way to download the data daily and create such history yourself.

You may do this using our product Market.csv.
