DESCRIPTIONThis module obtains information about
UKunit trust prices from www.trustnet.co.uk. The information source ``uk_unit_trusts'' can be used if the source of prices is irrelevant, and ``trustnet'' if you specifically want to use trustnet.co.uk.
UNIT TRUST NAMESUnfortunately there is no unique identifier for unit trust names. Therefore enough of the name should be given including spaces to yield a unique match. Trustnet sometimes uses abbreviated names, and the string given should match the abbreviation.
Consult www.trustnet.co.uk/ut/funds/perf.asp?sort=0 to find a match for your unit trusts.
Example ``jupiter income''
LABELS RETURNEDInformation available from Trustnet may include the following labels: exchange method source name currency bid ask yield price. In case of a unit trust, ``price'' returns the offer (ask) price. In case of an
OIEC,the unique price is returned in ``bid'', ``ask'' and ``price''.
