NAME ^

Finance::Quote::Trustnet - Obtain unit trust prices from trustnet.co.uk

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Finance::Quote;

    $q = Finance::Quote->new;

    %stockinfo = $q->fetch("uk_unit_trusts","trust-name"); # Can failover to other methods
    %stockinfo = $q->fetch("trustnet","trust-name"); # Use this module only.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module obtains information about UK unit trust prices from www.trustnet.co.uk. The information source "uk_unit_trusts" can be used if the source of prices is irrelevant, and "trustnet" if you specifically want to use trustnet.co.uk.

UNIT TRUST NAMES ^

Unfortunately there is no unique identifier for unit trust names. Therefore enough of the name should be given including spaces to yield a unique match. Trustnet sometimes uses abbreviated names, and the string given should match the abbreviation.

Consult http://www.trustnet.co.uk/ut/funds/perf.asp?sort=0 to find a match for your unit trusts.

Example "jupiter income"

LABELS RETURNED ^

Information available from Trustnet may include the following labels: exchange method source name currency bid ask yield price. In case of a unit trust, "price" returns the offer (ask) price. In case of an OIEC, the unique price is returned in "bid", "ask" and "price".
