Important Notes about Dates and Dividends
By default, the start date of the period for the first load is December 31, 2013.
You may configure this start date using the YahooFinanceHistoricalPricesStartDate setting in the application configuration file.
The provider saves data for the last trade dates in the cache\YahooHistoricalPricesLastData.csv file, and uses the latest dates as the start dates for next downloads.
If saved and loaded values of AdjClose are different, the provider reloads data for the entire period and adds the symbol to the cache\YahooHistoricalPricesDividendsOrSplits.txt file.
Accordingly, you may use the cache\YahooHistoricalPricesDividendsOrSplits.txt file as a symbol file for the YahooFinanceDividends mode.
