Web scraping to get stock info
Posted 26 September 2009 - 10:17 AM
Im trying to get a better overview of my portfolio. So im trying to make a script to make it happen.
The script should take the ticker info from this website: http ://bors.e24.no/e24.no/site/stock/stock_detail.page?magic=(cc%20(detail%20(tsid%2053786))) (example stock)
Once I retrieve the information I want to use it on my homepage to automaticly calculate what my portfolio is worth.
Could anyone point me in the right direction of what I need to do?

Otherwise, the easiest way would be to go with PHP and use regex to parse what you needed from the page.
