Has anyone experience with Money.net as a data provider? Is there an extension for money.net?

There is no extension for this data feed. Could you help me better understand it by answering these questions:

1. What benefits does it offer compared to existing data providers?
2. Do they have an API? Where can I see it? Reverse-engineering what seems to be a Java app could be quite an effort.
3. Any restrictions or download quotas?

The benefits compared to other data providers;

-Dividends available for stocks and ETFs,
-Many economic and fundamental data ...
-Good data quality (first view) at a low price

I have just spoken with their support. Unfortunately there is not an API available, just a excel addin.

Thanks for the feedback.

We have dividend adjustment on-the-fly in Wealth-Data, Yahoo and Tiingo providers. Tiingo is an extensive new source of free data.

Do they offer some fundamental / economic items of particular interest to you that are missing in the existing providers such as Zacks, YCharts etc.? If so, what are they? Does Money.net cover only U.S. stocks or European etc.?

That's something. Does the Excel addin require the (main) Money.net Java app installed and working or is it completely standalone and can work w/o the main app installed?

Thank your for the information about the new Tiingo data source. A good alternative to yahoo at al low price.

The excel addin is standalone, so it does not rely on the main Money.Net app.

Thanks, marking to research how the Excel Addin works and whether it's possible to use it to create the data provider.

Christian,

So that my research could be more productive and focused, would you help me out with this question:

Which fields in the data and market groups would be the most useful etc.?

The existing data providers like Zacks, YCharts are ok for me...
An alternative to yahoo was important. There should be dividends/interest payments available for stocks/etfs. Here there are not so many data providers. Due to the often bad data quality of yahoo, Tiingo may be an alternative.

Money.net also provides European stocks.

OK. If there's significant enough community interest in this project, we'll research into it.
