Building a webscraper to extract historical stock prices

Hi all!

I currently have an excel spreadsheet containing a list of ticker symbols and I used a ForEach activity to search the respective Yahoo Finance page as shown below.

What I want to achieve is to extract the past 10 days of historical stock price data as shown in the table but only the Date and Close columns. May I know how do I go about doing this? Will greatly appreciate any help!! :slight_smile:
