Python script to obtain London Stock Market data

Please only apply if you have experience in working with stock market data. The required tasks are as follows:

1. Identify a reliable source of stock data for London stocks - for the last 90 or 100 days. Preferably from a free source, however a paid subscription is an option. I would expect you to be familiar with the various resources for obtaining stock market data. The stock data to consist of open, high, low, close adjusted close.

2. Develop Python code (to run on macOS Mojave) to collect the last 90 or 100 days stock data for London Stock market stocks. The number of days should be configurable and stored into text file, e.g. [login to view URL] to contain 90 or 100.

The tickers codes/symbols for these stocks will be stored in a single text file such as stocks.txt. [login to view URL] will contain a list of stocks (between 1 and 450), each stock code/symbol will be on a new line. Therefore the max number of lines in [login to view URL] will be 450, and the minimum is 1. An example of such stocks codes are BUR.L, IQE.L, KWS.L, NMC.L, CCH.L etc...

The Python code will need to be able to read each stock symbol from the [login to view URL] text file and obtain the last 90 or 100 days of that stocks data. The python code will then need to save each of the stocks 90/100 days of stock data to a file on the hard disk. The filename to be saved should be the same as the stock ticker/symbol, but have a .txt as the extension. For example, if the 90/100 days of data for stock BUR.L has been retrieved it should be stored to [login to view URL], likewise for all of the other stock codes found in [login to view URL]

The stock data saved to the hard disk will need to be in ascii text (e.g. csv or text alternatives), but no binary databases please.

You can use a range of python libraries as needed.

The maximum number of stocks to collect will be 450 stocks.

That's all that's needed.

A second job will be posted once this job has been completed - this second job will be to perform technical analysis on each of the stocks saved to the hard disk.
