A simple module for retreiving stock data
stockquotes is a simple Python module for collecting stock quotes and
historical data from Yahoo! Finance. It's perfect for developers who can't
afford the (often high) prices charged by many stock data APIs.
- Python 3.5+
- Beautiful Soup 4
pip3 install stockquotes
First, import the
To get a stock quote, instantiate a
stockquotes.Stock object. The only
parameter is the ticker symbol to look up.
kroger = stockquotes.Stock('KR')
To get the current price of a share, get the
kroger_price = kroger.current_price
To get the day gain in dollars, get the
kroger_gain_dollars = kroger.increase_dollars
The same value as a percent is available in the
increase_percent property. To
indicate losses, these values are negative.
The historical data for a stock can be accessed through the
historical property. This is an array of
dicts, with the first item
representing the most recent quote. The
date property is a
datetime object representing the date the quote is from.
open is the
opening price for that day.
low are the high and low prices,
respectively, for that day.
adjusted_close are the closing
price. The difference is that
adjClose is adjusted for splits and
close is adjusted only for splits.
volume is the
stock's volume for that day.
Typically, this should give at least a month of data. Obviously, it gives less for recent IPOs. Also, a known but unexplained bug causes it to only give two days of data for some stocks.
stockquotes.StockDoesNotExistError is raised when the stock does not exist.
stockquotes.NetworkError is raised when a connection to Yahoo! Finance
cannot be established.
