Slow? Puzzled... I have a workbook with 3 sheets of quotes filling up, 200 day historical prices, SMA functions, it takes... 10 seconds?

Like I said, I mostly used their importHTML() and importData() functions, because I was extracting things out of web pages.

But, yes, their API functions are pretty fast. I hadn't really tried them because of my experience with the import functions. If I remember correctly, there's also a limit on the number of import functions that can be used.

When I ran into the article today on publishing a CSV file, it was really the first time I did a large number of GoogleFinance() functions. I was pleasantly surprised.
