tv = TvDatafeed()

when using without login, following warning will be shown you are using nologin method, data you access may be limited


Getting Data

To download the data use tv.get_hist method.

It accepts following arguments and returns pandas dataframe

(symbol: str, exchange: str = 'NSE', interval: Interval = Interval.in_daily, n_bars: int = 10, fut_contract: int | None = None, extended_session: bool = False) -> DataFrame)

for example-

# index
nifty_index_data = tv.get_hist(symbol='NIFTY',exchange='NSE',interval=Interval.in_1_hour,n_bars=1000)

# futures continuous contract
nifty_futures_data = tv.get_hist(symbol='NIFTY',exchange='NSE',interval=Interval.in_1_hour,n_bars=1000,fut_contract=1)

# crudeoil
crudeoil_data = tv.get_hist(symbol='CRUDEOIL',exchange='MCX',interval=Interval.in_1_hour,n_bars=5000,fut_contract=1)

# downloading data for extended market hours
extended_price_data = tv.get_hist(symbol="EICHERMOT",exchange="NSE",interval=Interval.in_1_hour,n_bars=500, extended_session=False)

Search Symbol

To find the exact symbols for an instrument you can use tv.search_symbol method.

You need to provide search text and optional exchange. This will return a list of macthing instruments and their symbol.

tv.search_symbol('CRUDE','MCX')
