google api

Hi. Can anyone tell me what is meant by "open" in the Google Finance API?

I cannot tell it it means today's open price or yesterdays? The reason I am confused is because they do not seem to give today's close. They give something called y_close which means yesterday's close I think. So why don't they also say y_open for yesterdays open? Seems strange.

I haven't used their Finance API, but at a guess I would say they don't give todays close because, well, in general "today" hasn't closed yet, and so they don't know.

If you can give a SPECIFIC reference to the API docs where this info is, that way we can look at it for ourselves and may help to give a better answer?
