Assuming I have a userID and Password, how do I download files from this website to my hard disk?

I have a Powershell script like this.  It's called Test2.ps1

$client = New-Object System.Net.WebClient
$client.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("", "Reuters123")

which I call with a batch file like this.  The batch file is in the same directory as the Powershell script and is called Test.bat

PowerShell.exe -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "& '%~dpn0.ps1'"

When I run this the files contain HTML and javascript rather than data.
