There seems to be a problem with connecting to Yahoo Finance that started a few days ago: Code:
" c = yahoo;
sec = 'IBM';
field = 'Close'; % retrieve closing price data
fromdate = '01/01/2012'; % beginning of date range for historical data
todate = '06/30/2012'; % ending of date range for historical data
d = fetch(c,sec,field,fromdate,todate);
The error code: "Error using yahoo Unable to connect or retrieve data from given URL."
Thanks in advance!

THX, works perfectly!
Not sure why you said works perfectly when Yahoo no longer provides data any more.
