An Issue with quantmod

rsherry8

I am using version 3.4.2 of R and I run the following two commands:
      library(quantmod)
      x=getQuote( "XOM" )
and get the following error messages:

Error in
download.file(paste("https://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=",  :
   cannot open URL
'https://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=XOM&f=d1t1l1c1p2ohgv'
In addition: Warning message:
In download.file(paste("https://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=", :
   cannot open URL
'https://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=XOM&f=d1t1l1c1p2ohgv': HTTP
status was '403 Forbidden'

What should I do?

Bob

Search open issues (the function name and portion(s) of the error are
usually good search terms):
https://github.com/joshuaulrich/quantmod/issues/

And report a new issue if someone else already hasn't.  In this case,
it's already been reported and I'm working on a fix:
