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


    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.


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.


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.


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.
