Importing Finance Data with Python from Free Web Sources. Get Historical Prices, Fundamentals, Metrics/Ratios etc. for thousands of Stocks, Bonds, Indexes, (Crypto-) Currencies
What can be the most critical and most expensive part when working with financial data?
Pandas coding? Creating some advanced Algorithms to analyse and optimize portfolios? Building solutions for Algorithmic Trading and Robo Advising? Maybe! But very often it is … getting the Data!
Financial Data is scarce and Premium Data Providers typically charge $20,000 p.a. and more!
However, in 95% of all cases where Finance Professionals or Researchers require Financial Data, it can actually be obtained from Free or low-priced web sources. Some of them provide powerful APIs and Python wrapper packages, which makes it easy and comfortable to import the data with and into Python.
This course shows you how to get massive amounts of Financial Data from the web and provides downloadable Python coding templates (Jupyter Notebooks) for your convenience!
