Matlab API Connector and Happy NY!

EOD Historical Data 1

We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And as a small gift, we are happy to introduce Matlab Connector for our API. The usage is very user-friendly, as explained in our documentation for Matlab Connector with examples.

Example for Live/Delayed Prices

>> data =
EODML('prices', 'symbol','AAPL', 'datatype','live')
data = 
  struct with fields:
           symbol: 'AAPL.US'
        timestamp: 1577480400
        gmtoffset: 0
             open: 291.12
             high: 293.97
              low: 288.12
            close: 289.8
           volume: 36566500
    previousClose: 289.91
           change: -0.11
         change_p: -0.038
      datestr_GMT: '27-Dec-2019 21:00:00'
      datenum_GMT: 737786.875

More details you can find in our documentation or the Undocumented Matlab website:  https://UndocumentedMatlab.com/EODML/.

  1. This can also be done with urlRead command and the free JSONio plugin. See https://github.com/gllmflndn/JSONio

    I did this with Octave instead of Matlab. When using Octave compile the plugin with “mkoctfile –mex jsonread.c”
    Then use “addpath /home/login/Documents/MATLAB/JSONio” also from the Octave prompt.

    You can call the plugin like this:
    urlString = [ …
    “https://eodhistoricaldata.com/api/eod/AAPL.US?from=2019-01-01&to=2020-01-01” …
    “&api_token=&period=d&fmt=json” ];
    [s, success, errorMessage] = urlread(urlString);
    result = jsonread(s);
    for i=1:size(result)
    adjustedClose = [ adjustedClose; result(i).adjusted_close];
    # this datenum call is computationally expensive, so better use a lookup array
    datesClose = [ datesClose; datenum(result(i).date, 29) ];
    endfor
