Hi again,

I generally use Quantmod package to download stock data. However
recently I observed that it is unable to download the data although
Source file is available.

Below is Error I found when I use Quantmod :

> library(quantmod)
> getSymbols("^NSEI")
Error in download.file(paste(yahoo.URL, "s=", Symbols.name, "&a=", from.m,  :
  cannot open URL

However the Source file
is available for manual download.

R version :
