A script to help you download many years' worth of historical data for technical analysis and candlestick charts.

  • Currently configured to download years 2005 through 2016 for each stock
  • Returns opening price, closing price, volume, backwards close adjustment, low price, and high price for each date.

Example of data formats after downloading:
