NAME ^

Finance::Quote::Yahoo::Asia - Fetch quotes from Yahoo Asia

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Finance::Quote;
    $q = Finance::Quote->new;

    %info = $q->fetch("asia","CREA.SI"); # Failover to other methods ok.
    %info = $q->fetch("yahoo_asia","CREA.SI"); # Use this module only.

DESCRIPTION ^

This module fetches information from Yahoo Asia. Symbols should be provided in the format "SYMBOL.EXCHANGE", where the exchange code is one of the following:

        SI - Singapore
        BO - Bombay
        JK - Jakarta
        HK - Hong Kong
        NS - India
        KS - Korea
        KL - Kuala Lumpur
        NZ - New Zealand
        SS - Shanghai
        SZ - Shenzhen
        TW - Taiwan
        TH - Thailand

This module provides both the "asia" and "yahoo_asia" methods. The "asia" method should be used if failover methods are desirable. The "yahoo_asia" method should be used you desire to only fetch information from Yahoo Europe.

Stocks are returned in the currency of the local exchange. You can use Finance::Quote's set_currency() feature to change the currency in which information is returned.

This module is loaded by default by Finance::Quote, but can be loaded explicitly by specifying the parameter "Yahoo::Asia" to Finance::Quote->new().

Information obtained by this module may be covered by Yahoo's terms and conditions. See http://sg.finance.yahoo.com/ for more details.

LABELS RETURNED ^

This module returns all the standard labels (where available) provided by Yahoo. See Finance::Quote::Yahoo::Base for a list of these. The currency label is also returned.

BUGS ^

The currency of each exchange has not been thoroughly confirmed. If you find an exchange is returning in an incorrect exchange, please use the bug tool at http://sourceforge.net/projects/finance-quote to report it.
