Today, we're announcing the availability of many more data sources for your use inside Quantopian. We have brought together and are making available over twenty new data sets from three separate vendors (with new providers on the way!).
The data represents a wide range of potential signals for your algorithms.
- Accern is enrolled, making available news sentiment data.
- EventVestor provides corporate events data such as index changes, earnings calendars and too many others to mention.
- Estimize has provided its crowd-sourced earnings estimate data.
These three early data partners only represent the start - we will add many more.
You have access to a free sample for each data set. If you like what you see, you can subscribe to the full version for a monthly fee. Each feed is priced separately so you can purchase just the data in which you're interested. All of the features and data you've used in the past continue to be free of charge: backtesting, research, live trading, market data, fundamental data and so much more. The only thing that has changed is that you now can tap into even more data.
We are able to make this data available to you due to the strength of this community. Because you are all gathered here in one place, these data providers are willing and able to make their product accessible natively on Quantopian. You don't have to worry about symbol mapping the data or importing it. We've dealt with the annoying plumbing. All you have to do is start using it to create your next strategy.
I've provided a simple example notebook using data from Estimize, EventVestor and Accern. View or clone that notebook to start right now. Or go check out quantopian.com/store to see the full listing of available data sets.
PS, if you have a particular data set or data vendor you think we should include in the platform, feel free to let me know.
