This article describes how to obtain quotes for non-United States securities. Specifically, securities from the following countries:
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Great Britain
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Netherlands
  • Spain
  • Sweden


Shares in non-U.S. companies are often traded on a U.S. exchange as well as the non-U.S. exchange. If a non-U.S. security is traded on a U.S. exchange, when you find the U.S. ticker symbol you receive the quote information from the U.S. exchange in U.S. dollars.

If you want to retrieve the value from a non-US exchange, you must specify the non-U.S. country code followed by the non-U.S. symbol. For example, to do this for a Canadian security, type the following line:
In this example, xyz is the ticker symbol for the security.

  • France (FR:)
  • Germany (DE:)
