Intraday is another way to say "in the day" trades. Any price movements within the same day are considered intraday. Intraday trading information is not as important for regular investors as it is for day traders who rely on daily price movements to take profits. The most common metric for intraday pricing is the daily high and low. The intraday high/low refers to the high and low price for the day. Yahoo has a tool that can help traders download intraday prices directly.
Go to Yahoo Finance. Enter the ticker symbol for the stock for which you would like intraday information. If you don't have a ticker symbol, use the "Ticker Symbol" quote box.
Walk through an example. Let's say we want to download intraday pricing for General Electric. The ticker symbol is "GE." Enter this into the quote box. Click "Get Quote."
Scroll down the page. On the right-hand side of the page, there's a box with options from which to choose. They are:
-Add GE to Your Portfolio -Set Alert for GE -Download Data -Download Annual Report
Select "Download Data". You will be asked to sign up for a free account if you don't already have one. Columns F & G will have the daily intraday information you need.
Click on "File" at the top of the page for a drop-down menu. Scroll down to download. Another download menu will appear. You can cut and paste or download directly into CSV, HTML, Excel, PDF, text or open office.
Go back to the main stock quote page for GE. Click on historical prices on the left-hand pane for historical data. Enter the date range and click submit. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Download to Spreadsheet." Again, this is only for historical intraday information.
