I've googled endlessly for a method of getting a complete and daily updated list of all Yahoo ticker symbols available through http: Yahoo has information for stocks, futures etc for a lot of exchanges worldwide, and I'd like a combined list of all the ticker symbols available through them. So basically, getting detailed information for a single symbol or several symbols at one time is easy but I just can't seem to find out how to get a list of all available tickers.
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason: You may be able to get help on Super User. There is a nice C wrapper for the Yahoo.
Finance API at http: Unfortunately there is no direct way to download the ticker list but the following creates the list by iterating through the alphabetical groups:.
What it doesn't seem to have is any sort of stock symbol modifiers. I haven't found a source for that information yet - if anyone knows of a way to automate downloading that, I'd like to hear it. Also, it'd be nice to find a way to download some sort of relation between the stock symbol and the exchange it's traded on, since some are traded on multiple exchanges, or maybe I only want to look at stuff on the TSX or something.
The 2 files nasdaqlisted. That should give you a good list of all stocks. Yahoo provides an Earnings Calendar that lists all the stocks that announce earnings for a given day. This includes non-US stocks. For example, here is today's: You can loop through several days and scrape the Symbols of all stocks that reported earnings on those days.
There is no guarantee that yahoo has data for all stocks that report earnings, especially since some stocks no longer exist bankruptcy, acquisition, etc.
If you are familiar with R , you can use the qmao package to do this. See this post if you have trouble installing it.
You can get a list of ETFs from yahoo here: That's about all the help I can offer, but you could do something similar to get some of the futures they offer by scraping these pages These are only U. I have been researching this for a few days, following endless leads that got close, but not quite, to what I was after.
My need is for a simple list of 'symbol, sector, industry'. I'm working in Java and don't want to use any platform native code. Finally, followed a suggestion to look at 'finviz. Looks like just the ticket.
Try using the following:. You can keep adding tickers. In code, you can read the stream. Or you can let the browser ask you whether to open or save the file. So far, this is the most powerful and convenient programmatic way to get the few pieces of data I couldn't otherwise seem to easily get. And, it looks like this site could well be a single source for most of what you might need other than real- or near-real-time quotes.
List updated to january One workaround I had for this was to iterate over the sectors which at the time you could do I haven't tested that recently. You wind up getting blocked eventually when you do it that way though, since YQL gets throttled per day.
I had same problem, but I think I have simple solution code is from my RoR app: Extract industry ids from yahoo. Sorry for mess, but this is first testing version for my project and I needed it very fast. There are some helpers variabels and other things for my app, sorry for it. But I have question: Have many symbols do you have? How to get a complete list of ticker symbols from Yahoo Finance? Can anyone help, please? Kara 3, 10 41 Did you get any joy?

This Excel spreadsheet was updated in September It is broken down into eight sheets, one each for. The spreadsheet is filtered with respect to the exchange, category name, category number and country. This is useful for investment research.
Now that you have the entire set of Yahoo ticker symbols, you can use the MarketXLS addin for Excel for live financial quotes; simply use the ticker symbol as an argument in one of over 80 functions. MarketXLS then imports the live financial data. If you recalculate the spreadsheet, the market cap is updated. I was wondering how you did find the raw data to built such an excel sheet. I used my own software to scrape tickers from Yahoo.
To update the tickers, I need to rerun the software. Could you please develop some resources for Middle east stock index such as saudi arabia tadawul index. Your yahoo ticker list doesnt include the tickers of saudi arabia. Your premise is correct. I test every combination of characters against every exchange, progressively adding them to a list if they are valid. The entire program takes a day to run there are lots of combinations, and restrictions placed by Yahoo on the number of queries per hour.
My name is Samuel Van Ransbeeck. I am doing my PhD on sonofication of stock markets and this sheet will be handy. I am making a software toolbox to use stock market data for uses in algorithmic composition. Do you mind if I include a copy in the appendix of my thesis? It would be great for the user if he can see what symbols exists most people who will use the app will be artists, so they will not have much knowledge about which symbols exist.
I have a question regarding the queries: Do you have a number on that because I cannot find anything concrete on that matter. Anyway, thank you for this work Yours sincerely Samuel Van Ransbeeck. Made use of the multi-ticker application. Thank you for the impetus to learn again. Hi Samir, Thanks for your amazing body of work. The South African stocks are now available on Google finance. Dear Samir, This is great idea and quite good result — thank you a lot.
Unfortunately, many companies at least from Hong Kong are missed e. Also — what is the Category Number means? Hi — the list currently on the website has Hong Kong tickers. If I find time I might upload the new list. The category number refers to the Yahoo Finance category number look at https: I am doing a project that runs web queries on Russell companies to get information for stock screening.
Your symbol list is how I get company names assigned to yahoo tickers. The following yahoo symbols are not on the spreadsheet. Add there names to the list and you are covered for now when using the Russell universe of stocks. Samir, will you put a fresh ticker list?
It takes hours and hours and hours and then some to scrape Yahoo and present the information. Samir, it would be great also, if you add a worksheet with directory of Exchanges, whose codes are used in your ticker list fields: Otherwise, could you provide a link to such a dictionary on the web, please. Any comments of yours are welcome and appreciated.
IF not, can you pls include them. Thanks a lot in Advance. Dear Samir, can you share a fresh Dec ticker list by now? I think, that all visitors would appreciate it. However, there are still quite a few Hong Kong stock ticker symbols that are missing too beside the Kuala Lumpur stock codes that Henry mentioned in another post.
Your coding should pick up all stock codes from Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur especially when they consist of numbers only. Holy mother of goodness, Thank you, Thank you, thank you. I had been developing my own scraper for personal research. Not to mention the web parsing to follow. Very valuable, thank you. Taiwan market is not complete,. TW, would be great to add these in future, thanks for a great work! Thanks for the work you did. I tried it for Australian stocks, but there are many missing tickers.
If you want to update, a full list from ASX is here http: Hi Samir Did you search only for 5 digits? Thanks for a great piece of work that I needed to work on analysis comparisons. I tried copy pasted all the tickers by alphabets to the tickers per worksheet and run.
