In R, When I was applying a function getSymbols() and I was running the code
getSymbols(tick, from = from_date, to = to_date, warnings = FALSE, auto.assign = TRUE, src="yahoo")
got error “Error in new.session() : Could not establish session after 5 attempts” and didn’t get a result.
As getSymbols() is the function of Quantmod package. Quantmod is an R package that provides a framework for quantitative financial modeling and trading. It provides a rapid prototyping environment that makes modeling easier by removing the repetitive workflow issues surrounding data management and visualization.
Why “Error in new.session() : Could not establish session after 5 attempts” Error Occurred?
When getSymbols() run, Inside getSymbols() ,
.getHandle will called ans our source is “yahoo” src=”yahoo”. When it goes to yahoo, All the 5 calls to the yahoo website return with no cookies, hence the function fails.
