    hi

    I m creating my own database of NYSE/NYSEArca/AMEX/NASDAQ symbols info like company name, vol, day high, day low etc.

    I will use this database for my purpose. Although i have problem with assigning types of symbols.

    Example: i want to find all CEFs symbols trading @ NYSE/ARCA/AMEX/NASDAQ exchanges.

    I ve googled and found:
    http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/CEF.csv
    http://www.cefconnect.com/Screener/FundScreener.aspx
    I compared them.

    WSJ has more CEF type tickers than cefconnect but is probably lying, eg:
    American Capital,ACAS [..]

    ACAS is not CEF symbol.

    Next example; ETF symbols:
    http://online.wsj.com/public/resources/documents/USETFs.csv
    http://news.morningstar.com/etf/Lists/ETFReturns.html?topNum=All

    Morningstar has more ETF symbols.

    The question is: where can i find fresh reliable source of ticker types(ADR, Common Stock, ETF, CEF, Structured Product, Warrants, Units ...)?

    Data can be in html, csv, sql format - nvm. I will use my perl crawler script to fetch and parse it

    thx
