This is related to either the or modular functions:

Is there a way to obtain data, namely historical prices, of indices, namely the S&P500?

I had tried the following:"INDEXSP:INX", 626307).google(startdate="Jan+1,+1900")[:5]

But it didn't retrieve anything.

See for an issue with the change in how Google Finance did things, which could be directly related.

Thanks. I looked at that link. It doesn't address how it queries the specific equity. I'm looking to obtain data on an index.
