Using MATLAB to collect and store data from INVESTOPEDIA

3 views (last 30 days)
I am about to write a script that collects stock price data from INVESTOPEDIA. The data is available free of charge by entering a URL in a standard browser. Needless to say, I don't want to do that manually. I am hoping I can use MATLAB. But how can I collect the data in and store it in a .mat file? Here is an example URL:
https://www.investopedia.com/markets/api/partial/historical/?Symbol=SBUX&Type=%20Historical+Prices&Timeframe=Daily&StartDate=Nov+28%2C+2010&EndDate=Dec+05%2C+2017

You can try the webread command to read the table from the url by setting the 'ContentType' option to 'table' and then save the workspace.
Alternatively, you can follow this link to know more about saving an html table to the workspace.
