Project description

tddata - easly download & read brazilian Tesouro Direto's data

GitHub GitHub Workflow Status Coveralls github

tddata is a simple Python package to download and read Brazil's bonds data from Tesouro Direto program.

1. Install

pip install it! As simple as that! :)

pip install git+

2. Usage

2.1 The td-download CLI utility

This package comes with a Command - Line Interface(CLI) that makes downloading Tesouro Direto's data easier.

The syntax is as follows:

td-download {bond_name} {year} [-o|--output OUTPUT/DIRECTORY/PATH]

2.2 The tddata Python package

Import the package with:

import tddata

Before you start to work the data, you need to download it to your local machine.

# Download LFT bond data from years 2002-2020 and save at ~/DATA/TD/LFT
# The file is saved with the following name pattern: {bond_name}_{year}.xls
for year in range(2002, 2021):"LFT", year=year, dest_path="~/DATA/TD/LFT")

Now you can read the data. Because the data in these downloaded files aren't in a data scientist aware format, tddata provides functions to read it correctly.

The most basic is read_file() that reads only one file at a time:

# Read data file of LFT bond from year 2019
lft2019 = tddata.read_file("~/DATA/TD/LFT/LFT_2019.xls")

The functions read_directory() and read_tree reads an entire directory and an entire tree of directories respectively, returning all data in one Pandas DataFrame.

# Read data directory
lft = tddata.read_directory("~/DATA/TD/LFT")

# Read data tree directory recursively
td = tdtddata.read_tree("~/DATA/TD")

3. Examples

In the example below we plot the daily yields of LTN bonds from 2016-01-01 to 2020-05-05

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import seaborn as sns

import tddata

ltn = tddata.read_directory("/DATA/TD/LTN")

# Filter data by date and create a new column with the bond's year of maturity
ltn = ltn[ltn["RefDate"] >= "2016-01-01"]
ltn = ltn.assign(

# Now plot the data with matplotlib and seaborn
# With the hue argument we plot each year of maturity by a diferent lines and colors
f, ax = plt.subplots()
f.set_size_inches(16, 8)
ax.set_title("LTN Daily Yield")
