addisonlynch commented Jan 22, 2018

Added IEX Daily Reader for historical data from IEX chart.

  • Added tests in tests/
  • Added entry to docs/source/readers/remote_data.rst

Have an actions (Dividends+Splits) as well as quotes (from quote) reader as well, but waiting for some clarification from the provider regarding bug fixes with the API calls - the quote may not be necessary anyway with the recent inclusion of "iex-last".

@addisonlynch Thanks!

Docs, snippet:

What are some limitations which should be noted?
(Esp. from viewpoint of ex-users of yahoo-finance and google-finance.)
Are ETFs and mutual funds supported? Queries/day? etc.

Very similar to Yahoo/Google.


  • List of available tickers is available from the /ref-data/symbols
  • From what I tested a couple weeks back, the tickers are a superset of Nasdaq/NYSE/AMEX
  • ETFs and most mutual funds supported.


  • No API key required
  • No retrieval limits / throttling, but IEX does request that other readers (TOPS/DEEP) limit large request to 1/second


  • Output is slightly different than Yahoo (does not include 'Adj Close')
  • Data must be within a 5-year historical period (this is a limitation if migrating from Yahoo or Google)
