)

Arguments

symbols

One or more symbols for equities or options, up to a maximum of 50 Symbols for equities are simple, for example, GOOG. Symbols for options are more complex, consisting of six elements separated by colons, in this format: underlier:year:month:day:optionType:strikePrice.

detailFlag

Determines the market fields returned from a quote request. The default is ALL. Options: ALL, FUNDAMENTAL, INTRADAY, OPTIONS, WEEK_52, MF_DETAIL

output

Indicate whether the output should be in the form of a data frame ('df') or list ('list'). Data frame is returned by default.

access_tokens

Access tokens are created using etrd_auth_access_token. This entry is not required because the output is saved and retrieved from R options automatically.

etrade_cred

The output created from etrd_auth_credentials when a valid ETRADE key and secret have been passed. This entry is not required because the output is saved and retrieved from R options automatically.

sandbox

ETRADE offers a sandbox environment for validating API calls and responses. If using the sandbox environment, this must be set to TRUE in each function called throughout etrader. ETRADE states "Sandbox responses use stored data that's intended to provide typical responses for basic use cases. So the responses you receive will not contain current data, and may not exactly match your requests in other ways." Essentially, the responses will not match the requests entered but successful pull will indicate whether the entry was valid or not.

Value

a list or data frame of quote data

Examples

if (FALSE) { # Get quotes for 3 symbols etrd_market_quote(c('AAPL','MSFT','SPY')) }
