How to automate financial data collection with Python using Tiingo API and Google Cloud Platform

  • First, you need to set the symbol, end_date and token parameter in the Tiingo url to submit into the request.get method; you then need to store the response into a variable r, which corresponds to the csv file containing the stock price history for the given ticker.
  • Now that you have two fully functioning Python scripts which get stock data from the Tiingo API, let’s see how you can automate their running with the use of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), so that every day in which the market’s open you can gather the latest quotes of the prior day.
  • The example above is showing the process for the first output table only, and you only need to change the necessary file bucket/path/names/location details in order to replicate the process for the stock price dataset.

Confirmed coronavirus cases are rising faster than ever

Why Sleep Deprivation Kills

  • Not too far away in their own tubes live other sleepless flies, animated with the calm persistence of those consigned to eternal day.
  • But profound sleep loss has more serious and immediate effects: Animals completely deprived of sleep die.
  • Under the pale light of the incubators in Dragana Rogulja’s lab at Harvard Medical School, sleepless flies have been living and dying as she pursues the answers.
  • With the rise of flies as proven test subjects, when Rogulja became curious about terminal sleep deprivation, it again seemed like a plausible thing to study.
  • If she closed the channels and allowed the flies to sleep on day 10, they recovered and lived as long as controls.
  • When Vaccaro dissected flies at various levels of deprivation, their tissues all seemed unharmed, with one very marked exception: Their guts were thick with reactive oxygen species (ROS), molecules with an oxygen atom that bears a spare electron.
