Panda - Data Reader

 

Pada Data Reader Package is the library to pull out the data directly from various web source (e.g, Yahoo Finance, Google Finance etc). However, both Data Reader package and the interface supported by the data source keep changing, the examples shown here may or may not work on your system. For example, Example 1 worked with no problem when I ran it with Python 3.5 on Windows 7 around Jan 2017, but it didn't work when I tried it with Python 3.62 on Windows 10 in Jan 2018 (See NOTE section in Example on how I fixed the problem).  

 

What you can learn from this note ? As mentioned above, the example in this page may or may not work depending on

  • the version of python and pandas
  • the data sharing interface implementation by the data provider

 

Then what you can learn from the examples that are not working ?  Since this area is not the field that I am working on day to day basis, I would not try to keep fixing the code and configuration so that it work all the time. Insead, I will try to write about something that I observe from trying  with multiple different versions of python and pandas. As you know, one of the common way to learn things in engineering is learning from problems. For those who want to jump in this area, this may be a good example showing that this kind of thing would be a part of your daily work.

 

 

 

Example 1 >

 

DataReader01.py

import pandas as pd

import pandas.io.data as pdr

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

import datetime as dt

 

date_start = dt.datetime(2016,1,1)

date_end = dt.datetime(2016,12,31)

symbol = 'GOOGL'

daily_data = pdr.DataReader(symbol,"google",date_start,date_end)

 

plt.plot(daily_data.ix[:,['High','Low']])

plt.show()

 

 

Result :---------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

NOTE : Even thought the commands worked in Python 3.5, I got following warnings.

 

Warning (from warnings module):

  File "C:\Python35\lib\site-packages\pandas\io\data.py", line 35

    FutureWarning)

FutureWarning:

The pandas.io.data module is moved to a separate package (pandas-datareader) and will be removed from pandas in a future version.

After installing the pandas-datareader package (https://github.com/pydata/pandas-datareader), you can change the import ``from pandas.io import data, wb`` to ``from pandas_datareader import data, wb``.

 

 

NOTE : With the exactly same code on Python 3.62, I got following error and execution failed.

 

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "C:/RyuCloud/Python/panda_DataReader01.py", line 2, in <module>

    import pandas.io.data as pdr

  File "C:\....\Python\Python36-32\lib\site-packages\pandas\io\data.py", line 2, in <module>

    "The pandas.io.data module is moved to a separate package "

ImportError: The pandas.io.data module is moved to a separate package (pandas-datareader). After installing the pandas-datareader package (https://github.com/pydata/pandas-datareader), you can change the import ``from pandas.io import data, wb`` to ``from pandas_datareader import data, wb``.

 

 

NOTE : To Fix this problem with Python 3.62,

First I tried as instructed here . However, the instruction command in the page didn't work on my system (Windows 10 and Python 3.62). So I manually downloaded the whl file pandas_datareader-0.5.0-py2.py3-none-any.whl from here and installed using pip as follows.

 

C:\Python36-32>pip install pandas_datareader-0.5.0-py2.py3-none-any.whl

 

 

NOTE : Observation with Python 3.75, pip version 20.0.2

 

On this version, I was able to install pandas_datareader by pip command as follows. And I ran the example, on Jul 2020 and got the following error.

 

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "C:\RyuCloud\Python\panda_DataReader01.py", line 8, in <module>

    f = web.DataReader("GOOGL", 'google', start, end)

    return func(*args, **kwargs)

    raise NotImplementedError(msg)

NotImplementedError: data_source='google' is not implemented

 

With some googling, I learned that the data sorce 'google' was discontinued and suggested to use 'yahoo' and it worked as shown below.

 

    import pandas as pd

    import pandas_datareader.data as web

    import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

    import datetime as dt

     

    start = dt.datetime(2018, 1, 1)

    end = dt.datetime(2018, 1, 27)

    f = web.DataReader("GOOGL", 'yahoo', start, end)

    print(f.head())

I got the result as below.

NOTE : Observation with Python 3.7.5 and pandas 1.0.5

 

When I tried the example with this version, I got the following error. You may go to https://github.com/pydata/pandas-datareader/issues for the details.
