Finance::Quote::FTfundUser Contributed Perl DocumentFinance::Quote::FTfunds(3)

NAME
       Finance::Quote::FTfunds - Obtain	UK Unit	Trust quotes from FT.com
       (Financial Times).

SYNOPSIS
	   $q =	Finance::Quote->new;

	   %info = Finance::Quote->fetch("ftfunds","<isin> ...");  # Only query	FT.com using ISINs

DESCRIPTION
       This module fetches information from the	Financial Times	Funds service,
       http://funds.ft.com. There are over 47,000 UK Unit Trusts and OEICs
       quoted, as well as many Offshore	Funds and Exhange Traded Funds (ETFs).
       It converts any funds quoted in GBX (pence) to GBP, dividing the	price
       by 100 in the process.

       Funds are identified by their ISIN code,	a 12 character alphanumeric
       code.  Although the web site also allows	searching by fund name,	this
       version of Finance::Quote::FTfunds only implements ISIN lookup. To
       determine the ISIN for funds of interest	to you,	visit the funds.ft.com
       site and	use the	flexible search	facilities to identify the funds of
       interest. The factsheet display for any given fund displays the ISIN
       along with other	useful information.

       This module is loaded by	default	on a Finance::Quote object. It's also
       possible	to load	it explicity by	placing	"ftfunds" in the argument list
       to Finance::Quote->new().

       Information obtained by this module may be covered by funds.ft.com
       terms and conditions See	http://funds.ft.com/ and http://ft.com for
       details.

   Stocks And Indices
       This module provides both the "ftfunds" and "ukfunds" fetch methods for
       fetching	UK and Offshore	Unit Trusts and	OEICs prices and other
       information from	funds.ft.com. Please use the "ukfunds" fetch method if
       you wish	to have	failover with future sources for UK and	Offshore Unit
       Trusts and OEICs	- the author has plans to develop Finance::Quote
       modules for the London Stock Exchange and Morningstar unit trust
       services. Using the "ftfunds" method will guarantee that	your
       information only	comes from the funds.ft.com website.

       The following labels may	be returned by Finance::Quote::ftfunds :

	   name, currency, last, date, time, price, nav, source, method,
