Intro

Quandl is a platform for financial, economic, and alternative data that serves investment professionals. Use Domo's Quandl Stock Quote connector to retrieve End-of-Day stock quote information from the WIKI dataset, which includes about 3000 U.S. stocks.

This data is updated daily, usually within 6 hours of the close of market. 

To learn more about the Quandl stock data API, visit their page (https://blog.quandl.com/api-for-stock-data).

You connect to your Quandl Stock Quote account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Quandl Stock Quote connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Best Practices

You should configure your Quandl Stock Quote DataSet to run once daily using Append data mode. 

Prerequisites

To connect to Quandl account and create a DataSet, you must have a Quandl auth token (API key). To generate an API key, go to https://www.quandl.com/account/api and choose to generate a new key.
