FRED fundamental provider

RSS
The FRED fundamental provider allows downloading an extensive amount of free economic data from St.Louis Federal Reserve website.

It works as a regular static provider though:

  1. Find desired "symbol" at the FRED website in the desired scale
  2. In New DataSet Wizard, type in the symbol and pick appropriate bar scale from the dropdown list
  3. Update the new DataSet like any other static DataSet

Keep in mind that symbol names vary on a by scale basis. If you provide an incorrect bar scale for the given symbol, the provider will download the data BUT will not show it until you create a DataSet in the proper bar scale. To sum up, before creating a FRED DataSet (when available) one should visit the FRED website to find out the item name and its frequency.
