Project description

Bavest Python SDK

The Bavest Finance SDK is an open-source library to create finance products in weeks. Bavest offers:

  • Financial api with 99.95% uptime
  • Easy to integrate and use
  • Free for open-source projects

Get API key

First, you need to create a Bavest account. After registration, you will find your api key in the dashboard.

Free API key for Open-Source projects

First, use the TypeForm to provide all required information. After, you will receive an API key via E-Mail.


import os
import dateutil
from bavest import BavestRESTClient, Resolution
from datetime import datetime
import dateutil.relativedelta as relativedelta

BAVEST_API_KEY = os.environ.get('BAVEST_API_KEY')
client = BavestRESTClient(BAVEST_API_KEY)

if __name__ == "__main__":
    to =
    frm = to + dateutil.relativedelta.relativedelta(days=-2)
    to = to + dateutil.relativedelta.relativedelta(days=-1)
    resolution = Resolution.DAILY
    candles = client.candles("AAPL", frm, to, resolution)

Install the package

First install the python package using pip:

pip install bavest 


See here for more information.


  1. Now, use the package in your project:
from bavest import BavestRESTClient
  1. Create a finance client:
client = BavestRestClient(apiKey)
  1. Now you can use it to get data from the api:
quote = client.quote("AAPL")


to =
frm = to + dateutil.relativedelta.relativedelta(days=-20)
resolution = Resolution.MONTHLY
candles = client.candles(symbol, frm, to, resolution)
news =
search =
forex =, to)

etfSector = client.etf.sector(symbol)
etfCountry =
etfHoldings =
etfProfile = client.etf.profile(symbol)

# Portfolio Items
transactionItem = TransactionItem("MSFT", 2, frm).get()
transactionList = [transactionItem]

portfolioRegion = client.portfolio.region(transactionList)
portfolioStats = client.portfolio.stats(frm, to, resolution, transactionList, "USD")
portfolioChart = client.portfolio.chart(frm, to, resolution, transactionList)
