Hi,

I find the move to nasdaq.com for stocks very unfortunate because their website is broken since many months now and they don't seem to be willing to fix it.
How to reproduce:
- type "MSFT" in your favorite search engine (I am looking at you, duckduckgo!) and press return.
- click on the link "More at NASDAQ". You will land on http://www.nasdaq.com/de/symbol/msft/real-time if you are located in Germany. I guess you'll land on http://www.nasdaq.com/en/symbol/msft/real-time if you are in the US?
- click on "1 year" to see the chart of the last year: you will land on http://www.nasdaq.com/aspx/micro-dynamic-charting.aspx?timeframe=1y&symbol=MSFT&... which is a 404 page :-(

I hate nasdaq.com :(

Are you still getting redirected to /de/? Right now we're sending the user to a generic URL, but I'm not getting redirected by Nasdaq, even after connecting from other countries via a VPN.

Yes, I am still getting redirected to /de/ (nasdaq.com does that). It is probably because of my browsers' language (tested on chrome and firefox).

That looks like a bug! The info is available and seems to work: http://www.nasdaq.com/de/symbol/msft/interactive-chart?timeframe=1y

We'll see about where the More At links to as well. You can file bugs in the issues at github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclickinfo-spice if you find others
