Yahoo Finance Live Feeds in Excel after their API Discontinuation in November 2017


Important Note: Live Feeds are now part of the XL Feeds Excel Add-In. Visit the XL Feeds web site for details. Some or all of the information below may still apply on the new Add-In.

On the fateful Wednesday of November 1st, 2017 Yahoo decided to stop their – until then – free service of delivering real time market data as a text stream through a special URL. For hundreds of businesses and individuals who had relied for years on Yahoo's benevolent free service, this single action meant only one thing: Instant death!

If all you want is a very quick and uncomplicated way (three mouse clicks!) to simply get live feeds in your spreadsheet, check out the 30 seconds videos below:
