    Most data vendors will require a free API key because that's their GTM. They want you to create an account with them to get a free API key and then expect to be able to upsell you over time.

    Or you can access "free data" (e.g. yfinance) that relies on projects who actively scrape financial data from a website - these tend to need a lot of updates from main maintainer since there are no aligned incentives between maintainer of the scrapped API and company that has the data.

    PS: I'm the main creator behind the OpenBB project on GitHub.

  • awesome-quant

    A curated list of insanely awesome libraries, packages and resources for Quants (Quantitative Finance)

    Project mention: RustQuant: A Library for Quantitative Finance | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-01

    No, it looks more like a Rust equivalent of libraries like ffn (financial functions for python) or many of the other ones listed here https://github.com/wilsonfreitas/awesome-quant

    Using rust to do exploratory analysis in python seems like a misguided idea. But using rust to productize models that have performance and accuracy sensitivities, the things that C/C++ is still used for, indeed sounds like a good idea.

    Most of the python libraries used in finance, like numpy/pandas, call out to C for performance reasons; the libraries are essentially python bindings + syntax to C functions. It would be interesting to think about replacing that backend with rust.

    Project mention: Work with First, Second and Third Order Greeks Through the Finance Toolkit | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-17

    Over the last year I've spend a significant amount of time creating a Finance Toolkit in Python, it currently features over 150+ different metrics such as financial ratios, models, risk and performance metrics, technical indicators, macro-economic parameters and since today also all Greeks.

    The Finance Toolkit is written in Python and is meant as a free solution to acquire a large range of financial metrics. My goal is to make financial calculations accessible to everyone as there is no point in reinventing the wheel over and over again which I've seen countless of times happen given that I work in the Financial Sector myself.

    If you are interested give it a go: https://github.com/JerBouma/FinanceToolkit and find the recent release notes here that talk about the Greeks: https://github.com/JerBouma/FinanceToolkit/releases/tag/v.1....
