An API for Yahoo Finance that collects current and historical stock data

Project description

Information

A fast, easy API that retrieves stock data from Yahoo Finance. Data can be initialized by scraping data from yahoo finance or by reading from a json file saved by a previous session. Data collected includes current data as well as all historical data for a stock up to the past 50 years. Unlike other APIs that collect data from Yahoo Finance this API has built in easy to use functions to filter collected data. #Installation
