Project description


license version versions coverage pylint docs
pytest:37 pytest:38 pytest:39 pytest:310 pytest:311

Python client for the EOD Historical Data service REST / WebSockets API and provides various financial data including stock market, splits and dividends, fundamental and economic, exchanges and alternative data feeds. Provides synchronous and asynchronous interfaces for HTTP API, asynchronous interface for WebSockets.


For normal usage you will need API key which you can get from here.
Supported Python version >= 3.7

Package can be installed using pip or poetry:

pip install eodhdc
poetry add eodhdc

To support additional HTTP clients install with extras:

pip install eodhdc[httpx,aiohttp]


Asynchronous usage

import asyncio
from eodhdc import EODHDClient

eodhdc = EODHDClient("httpxa", key="demo")
async with eodhdc.session:
    results = await asyncio.gather("MCD.US", start="2023-01-01", finish="2023-01-10", fmt="csv"),"MCD.US", start="2023-01-01", finish="2023-01-10", fmt="json")
for result in results:

Synchronous usage

from eodhdc import EODHDClient

eodhdc = EODHDClient("requests", key="demo")
result =
    "AAPL.US", start="2023-01-01", finish="2023-01-10",
    fmt="json", output="pandas:./response.csv", writer={"header": False}
print(result, "\n")

WebSockets usage

from eodhdc import EODHDWebSockets

eodhdws = EODHDWebSockets(buffer=100)
async with eodhdws.connect("us") as websocket:
    await eodhdws.subscribe(websocket, ["TSLA", "EURUSD"])
    async for message in eodhdws.receive(websocket):
        if len(eodhdws.buffer) > 5:
            await eodhdws.unsubscribe(websocket, ["EURUSD"])
        if len(eodhdws.buffer) > 10:


Also check for quickstart examples.


Main client modules

  • EODHDClient: HTTP API client, parameters are:

    • client: http client module to use.
    • key: api token.
    • args: http client get args to use across requests.
  • EODHDWebSockets: WebSockets API client, parameters are:

    • key: api token.
    • buffer: enable and set buffer size.
    • args: websocket client args.

EODHDClient will automatically determine sync or async http client and provide corresponding interface with same signature, so for example usage can easily be changed:

eodhdc = EODHDClient("httpxs")
result =
eodhdc = EODHDClient("httpsxa")
result = await

Asynchronous version of EODHDClient can be used without context manager, do not forget to call destroy method to close session in that case.

You can also get response headers from last request, for example to check X-RateLimit-Limit and X-RateLimit-Remaining values by using headers property:

result = await

EODHDWebSockets client provides following methods:

  • connect: connect to web-socket endpoint, returns context manager.
  • authorize: check authorization status, do not use directly as it will consume messages.
  • subscribe: subscribe to the tickers.
  • unsubscribe: unsubscribe from the tickers.
  • receive: receive messages, async generator.
  • activate: activate message loop.
  • deactivate: deactivate message loop.

HTTP client modules

  • requests: default, well known, synchronous module.
  • httpxs: httpx library, synchronous mode, 'httpx' extra.
  • httpxa: httpx library, asynchronous mode, 'httpx' extra.
  • aiohttp: aiohttp library, asynchronous mode, 'aiohttp' extra.

HTTP API groups

Main HTTP API module contains groups that corresponds to EODHD API groups, and can be accessed like:<method> or<method>
See below mapping for client groups and methods.
Visit official API documentation for detailed description.

HTTP API group methods

In addition to original API parameters each method have:

  • args: override or add http client get args.
  • output: output format and optionally file location, format is <type>[:path]
    • types: response type
      • "response": raw binary response body
      • "content": decoded as response content type
      • "pandas": pandas dataframe
    • path: additionally save response to file
      • for "response" and "content" will save as is
      • for "pandas" will save in format specified by extension: parquet, pickle, csv, hdf, xlsx, json, html, feather, tex, dta, md
  • writer: pandas writer parameters, see original to_<format> methods for more details.
    note that some formats may require 3rd-party libraries.
    additionally writer can be provided with:
    • change:columns - dict to rename DataFrame columns.
    • change:reorder - bool to use columns dict for DataFrame columns order.
    • change:reindex - str or list to set DataFrame columns as index.

Custom HTTP clients

Additionally, you can provide your own HTTP client by passing its module instead of name string.
Module should implement get method and create and destroy can be provided for asynchronous session management.
Check modules under eodhd.clients for details about required parameters, return data type and exceptions handling.
