Where can I find free financial data?

January 9th, 2012, 7:31 am

Hello

I am looking for historical Australian secondary equity offerings data. Does anyone have access to some databases that have such information and could help me out?

EDIT: does anyone have access to SDC Platinum database? Some universities have access and I really need this data for my thesis.

Thanks

Hello.

I can't download grains futures from finance.yahoo.com

Take: http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/table.csv?s=TICKER&a=3&b=17&c=2012&d=3&e=17&f=2014&g=d&ignore=.csv

That works with TICKER = MSFT, AAPL, ....

But SX14.CBT, sx14.cbt, SX14 or sx14 for CBoT soybean futures Nov-14 doesn't work.

What's the trick here, please?

OK. No prob. I used Quandl instead.

Sorry one can not add code in the 'The Quantitative Finance FAQs Project' forum


#Import CBoT Soybean futures Nov-14 from Quandl
import Quandl
import datetime

# Token
token = 'my_token_is_blablabla'

# Timeframe: 2 years ago to today
start = datetime.datetime.today() - 2 * datetime.timedelta(days=365)
end = str(datetime.datetime.now().year) + '-' + \
str(datetime.datetime.now().month) + '-' + \
str(datetime.datetime.now().day)

# Ticker for CBoT Soybean futures Nov-14
sx4 = 'CME/SX2014'

# Object containing the data array
data = Quandl.get(authtoken = token, dataset = sx4, trim_start = start, trim_end = end)
