This project is for downloading Yahoo financial EOD (End-of-Day) data of stock and market indexes.
Yahoo has provided the EOD financial data service for a long time and it has been well-used. However, starting on May 2017, Yahoo financial has terminated that service without warning. This is confirmed by a Yahoo employee in forum posts.
However, it is later found that despite that the service has been terminated, the Yahoo financial EOD data is still available, though with some authentication steps added and some changes in format. The technical details are described in a separate document.
This project provides a way to continue obtaining the same data.
This is a Python project. So Python should be installed first. This project works with either Python2 or Python3.
To install this project On Windows / Linux, you may simply do
pip install yahoo_quote_download
The main entry point is a commandline application. To download EOD data for a ticker, please try
yqdownload -t ticker -f datafile [-b begindate] [-e enddate] [-m maxretries] [-v verbose] [-h]
