I have a symbol list of 23083 mutual fund symbols. When I use the download script it seems to get only around 20000. Do you know if I am running into some limits? Thanks

There is no limits on the number of symbols you can add.
Maybe there are some duplicate symbols in your 23083 mutual fund list.

This list downloads "yahoo eod data" from A* to S*. I can email you the symbol list.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
