Looking for free API to return OHLC stock and ETF values for current day only

    I pull historical data through IB's API. Works great, happy with it. But during the day / market hours, I am usually behind a firewall and cannot access the IB API. Is there a free API or website that I can parse which will give me the OHLC values (the daily open, high, low, and close/last trade) for the current day during market hours? I used to use Yahoo for this, but I think their API broke. I'll probably only want to pull about 20-30 tickers a couple times per day. So not many queries. Ideally I'm looking for a service that will return many tickers in a single query, something like


    Then it returns the result to that in some easily parse-able format. I'm fine paying a bit of money for such a service, although I suspect a free source exists.

    I think alpaca has free data as well.

    Though for ~$30/mo. you can get the data from Quandl in a nice easily digestible once daily update. Worth the price.
