Details

Meant to be called internally by getSymbols (see also)

One of a few currently defined methods for loading data for use with 'quantmod'. Its use requires the packages 'DBI' and 'RSQLite', along with a SQLite database.

The purpose of this abstraction is to make transparent the 'source' of the data, allowing instead the user to concentrate on the data itself.

Value

A call to getSymbols.SQLite will load into the specified environment one object for each 'Symbol' specified, with class defined by 'return.class'.

Note

This function is experimental at best, and has not been thoroughly tested. Use with caution, and please report any bugs to the maintainer of quantmod.
