By using http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=STOCKNAME&f=I am able to download a CSV file, does anyone know what the symbol for beta is? It should go after &f= e.g. the symbol for the stock name is n and it goes in as such: http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=STOCKNAME&f=n

Thanks in advance for your help!

I can download the file .csv, but no data in. Can you explain better how to use the link? – Quantopic Apr 4 '14 at 20:46

FWIW, gummy-stuff.org is a good reference for yahoo's csv api, but it doesn't include a tag for beta. :-( – user508 Apr 5 '14 at 17:36
