pandas Pandas Datareader Reading financial data (for multiple tickers) into pandas panel - demo


Example

from datetime import datetime
import pandas_datareader.data as wb

stocklist = ['AAPL','GOOG','FB','AMZN','COP']

start = datetime(2016,6,8)
end = datetime(2016,6,11)

p = wb.DataReader(stocklist, 'yahoo',start,end)

p - is a pandas panel, with which we can do funny things:

let's see what do we have in our panel

In [388]: p.axes
Out[388]:
[Index(['Open', 'High', 'Low', 'Close', 'Volume', 'Adj Close'], dtype='object'),
 DatetimeIndex(['2016-06-08', '2016-06-09', '2016-06-10'], dtype='datetime64[ns]', name='Date', freq='D'),
 Index(['AAPL', 'AMZN', 'COP', 'FB', 'GOOG'], dtype='object')]

In [389]: p.keys()
Out[389]: Index(['Open', 'High', 'Low', 'Close', 'Volume', 'Adj Close'], dtype='object')
