Is there any way, given a stock symbol, to obtain historical data for it? For example, if I want to calculate the 200 day average for a quote I would need the closing price for a add stock for the last 200 days. How can I obtain that?

    Try Yahoo finance, they actually let you graph a moving average if you wish, no math or spreadsheet required. – JTP - Apologise to Monica Jun 23 '14 at 22:32
  • In fact most charting software already does this for you, no need to calculate it. There is no need to try to re-invent the wheel. – Victor Jun 24 '14 at 5:45
  • JoeTaxpayer but can I download the data? Or I can only chart online? – Paulo Matos Jun 24 '14 at 7:58
  • Victor as I mentioned to JoeTaxpayer... I know most charting software does it for me but how can I grab hold of the data itself? – Paulo Matos Jun 24 '14 at 7:59
