>> c = yahoo
Error using yahoo
Unable to connect or retrieve data from given URL.
Datafeed Toolbox v5.5: The fetch command for yahoo is no longer working for me. Works fine for FRED. Is there an update to the URL the yahoo command was referencing? or let me know if there is a fix.
Thanks

The MathWorks Support Team recently posted an update on this issue. Here is the answer to save you the click:
“In April 2017, Yahoo introduced some changes in the protocol of their API. These changes prevented the Datafeed Toolbox from connecting to the service. The following webpage contains the workaround for this issue and instructions on how to apply the fix. https://www.mathworks.com/support/bugreports/1571158 ”
