A simple module for retreiving stock data

Project description

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 steep) prices charged by many stock data APIs.

Requirements

  • Python 3.6+
  • Beautiful Soup 4

Installation

pip3 install stockquotes

Usage

First, import the stockquotes module.

import stockquotes

To get a stock quote, instantiate a stockquotes.Stock object. The only parameter is the ticker symbol to look up.

kroger = stockquotes.Stock('KR')

Basic data

To get the current price of a share, get the Stock's currentPrice.

krogerPrice = kroger.currentPrice

To get the day gain in dollars, get the Stock's increaseDollars.

krogerGainDollars = kroger.increaseDollars

The same value as a percent is available in the increasePercent property. To indicate losses, these values are negative.

Historical data

The historical data for a stock can be accessed through the Stock's historical property. This is an array of dicts, with the first item representing the most recent quote. The dict's date property is a datetime object representing the date the quote is from. open is the opening price for that day. high and low are the high and low prices, respectively, for that day. close and adjClose are the closing price. The difference is that adjClose is adjusted for splits and dividends, whereas close is adjusted only for splits. volume is the stock's volume for that day.

Exceptions

stockquotes.StockDoesNotExistError is raised when the stock does not exist. stockquotes.NetworkError is raised when a connection to Yahoo! Finance cannot be established.
