Description

Retrieves ticker price histories and applies adjusted values. The retrieved histories will be assigned to the global environment. If the ticker symbol is already available according to the set of tickers passed in, then take no action. This function will not add the ticker to the set, so if needed update the set separately. Uses quantmod::getSymbols to fetch by default from Yahoo. Applies quantmod::adjustOHLC function if adjusted column available. Strips price history prior to given switch_date. Strips ticker symbol from the resulting xts column names.
