I do not think there is a way to fix this. Perhaps looking into alternate sources to pull financial data from would be a good future project. For the time being, I've removed this functionality.

It seems like the issue is that Google detects the query as automated. I'm not sure if/how this can be fixed.

Installed the latest financial package version (0.5.1) which fixed the old google 'fetch' problem. However, trying the new version returns an error as google thinks it is from an automated source and will not allow the exchange.

The code is simple:
pkg load financial

connection = google();
ticker = 'AAPL';
fromDate = "01-Jan-2018";
endDate = "30-May-2018";
frequency = "d";
[d f] = fetch(connection, ticker, fromDate, endDate, frequency);
d = flip(d);

dates = d(:,1);
openPrice = d(:,2);
high = d(:,3);
low = d(:,4);
closePrice = d(:,5);

highlow(high, low, openPrice);

-------------------------------the message from Octave is:
error: Could not write Google data to tmp file:
HTTP response code said error
URL was:

fetch_google at line 62 column 7
