A Python Interface to the Yahoo Finance API

Project description

Yahoo Finance Python Interface

PyPI - Python Version PyPI - Package Version GitHub Status - Stable

yahoo-finance-pynterface is a Python package that provides a new interface to the Yahoo Finance API.


Motivation

Yahoo Finance is by far the most popular (and free!) resource for financial data.

Many packages have been distributed to provide access to such a resource in the recent past.
However, most of such projects were aiming at filling the gap that the changes made in May, 2017 by the Yahoo Team left behind.

yahoo-finance-pynterface has been intended to provide a completely new interface to Yahoo Finance,
and it is meant to offer effective methods to interact with its API.


About

yahoo-finance-pynterface makes an extensive use of pandas.
As a consequence, most of the data retrieved are returned as pandas.DataFrame objects.

Even if a stable release is available, the project has yet to be considered "complete" and many other features has yet to come! Please, drop me an email if any comment/suggestion/remark pops up in your mind :)
