JSE End Of Day Data Download
« on: November 06, 2013, 08:01:45 pm »
Hi folks

Does anyone have an idea where I can get software that will download JSE EOD data (O,H,L,C,V) for free - preferably with the ability to get historic prices as well? Metastock format would be a bonus, but I can work with .txt or .csv as well.

I have been managing my portfolio using a fund manager application that allows you up to 60 times to open it before it stops and insists that you purchase a licence. I started using version 9, and when that exipired, I used v 10 (another 60 times), then v 11, and finally v 12, each giving me 60 times access. But now - over a year later - there's no later version. The management portion is not too bad (pretty good actually), but the main reason I use it is because it has a download functionality that allows for the importing of JSE EOD prices from Bloombergs, as well as historical prices. I use this to download specific share prices and then use the export facility to export such into a Metastock format file. I then use this file to import data into my charting software - which I need to plan my trading activities. The charting software does not have any download capabilities.

So why not purchase a licence you ask? Well it's a lot cheaper to buy Windows 8 - and you still have to pay additional fees for version upgrades. So in my opinion the cost of the app just for the downloading portion is not worth it. Hence my request. I am aware that you can subscribe to various data providers who are able to provide the required data, but hey!! - we all need to save as much moola as we can where we can.

So if anyone is prepared to share info and provide assistance in this regard I will be most appreciative.

Thanks Nios
They are one of the cheaper providers in SA - If I recall correctly it's R189.00 per month, but you get a discount if paid annually in advance.
But it's not free.

mySharenet is about R60 pm.  You can download csv (it's actually tab separated but you get the idea).  It's possible to use something like curl if you need to.  PM me for a simple script.

Hi guys,

Google finance has JSE stocks these days :)

Someone made a nifty excel macro for it too.

Just use the prefix "JSE:", for e.g. "JSE:NPN".
