Simple Stock Analysis in Python

This is tutorial for Simple Stock Analysis in jupyter and python. There are two versions for stock tutorial. One is jupyter version and the other one is python. Jupyter also makes jupyter notebooks, which used to be called iPython notebooks. However, Python is an interpreted high-level programming language. It is very simple and easy to understand for beginners that wants to learn about stock analysis and wants to become a quant. In addition, this tutorial is for people that want to learn coding in python to analyze the stock market. However, if you already know about stock analyzing or coding in python this will not be for you. You can check out more advance coding:

The order is from #1 through #26.

You learn number 1 first and you go in order. Once you finished, you will know how to write codes in python and understand finance and stock market. ㊗️

🔻 Do not use this code for investing or trading in the stock market. Stock market is unpredictable. 📈 📉 However, if you are interest in the stock market, you should read many 📚 books that relate to the stock market, investment, or finance. The more books you read, the more you will understand and the more knowledge you gain. On the other hand, if you are into quant or machine learning, read books about 📘 finance engineering, machine trading, algorithmic trading, and quantitative trading.
