One of our subscribers, Matthew Metzger, recently created a python code which works with EOD Historical Data API: Stock Data Seeder. We are happy to publish this post and share this code with our subscribers. Stock Data Seeder is a tool for getting basic stock data and historical stock daily results with which to start your stock history inquest.
Ideally, this tool is focused on people who have some grasp of what the Python language is and how it can be used. However, directly following the instructions will generate a foundational stock history file, complete with most of the stocks in the S&P 1500 (large, mid, small cap), that you may import into a database or use within some other technical context.
Matthew is going to work more in this project and will be happy for any feedback if there is.
