Hi, this question is kind of related to basic 4 android but i'd thought i ask it anyway. I'm using basic 4 android to make an app which gathers all the stock market data, by using httputils to download a csv file from this website : "http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/Nasdaq.csv". some of the data is then displayed in a listview.

if i were to publish this app and use advertisements to earn money from it would this be legal?

if not are there anyways to get only closing market data from nasadaq stockmarket?

P.S another website i found: ftp.nasdaqtrader.com/files/marketshare/

I was looking for something else and found this post, I'm not sure if this helps but yahoo should have the data your looking for and I'm sure that you can use it. Do a google search on how to retrieve the data

Peter is right, be sure to read the disclamer of that site. it probably has some stuff about data that can't be re-used for other sites/apps without having their permission.

Yes Peter

I'm sure your right on that, I was getting confused about actually providing the data or supplying the method of getting the data in an app yourself -I'm sure this is OK because there are many sites that tell you how to retrieve Yahoo data. If I'm wrong. please let me know
