So I've been trying to pull dynamic stocks, provided from the yahoo API using the following code provided in one of the tutorials:
try: print('Currently Pulling',stock) urlToVisit = 'http://chartapi.finance.yahoo.com/instrument/1.0/'+stock+'/chartdata;type=quote;range=10y/csv' stockFile = try: sourceCode = urllib.request.urlopen(urlToVisit).read().decode() splitSource = sourceCode.split('n') for eachLine in splitSource: splitLine = eachLine.split(',') if len(splitLine)==6: if 'values' not in eachLine: stockFile.append(eachLine) except Exception as e: print(str(e), 'failed to organize pulled data.') except Exception as e: print(str(e), 'failed to pull pricing data')
while True: stock = input('Stock to plot: ') graphData(stock,10,50)
As a result, when I enter a value such as; 'AAPL', or 'TSLA' this error would pop up:
<urlopen error [Errno 11001] getaddrinfo failed> failed to organize pulled data.
If anyone could supply me with a way to pull stock data from an API, that'd be highly appreciated.
