Download Nigerian Stock Exchange Historical Stock Price Dataset

Some months ago I was trying to do some data analysis on historical equity data with Geek Impressario, Femi Aluko, but we practically ran into brick walls: no data. There wasn’t any easy place to get daily prices in one single place.

I turned to a friend who had one but then due to some vague business secrecy, I was told to hug an electric pole (told in a nice way that I actually looked forward to that shocking experience).

So like what geeks are known for, our impresario sat down and cooked some codes, helped with a generous dose of caffeine and bush meat and presto, a scrapper was born to scour the web for fragments and we built a database of the stock prices from January 1, 2000 till date.

But we won’t be asking you to hug the next shocking thing you can lay your hands on, we have decided to give out part of the data to anyone who needs to download and use for any type of analysis or financial weapon of mass destruction that can be cooked up.

The data is available for download in CSV from Google Docs. The data we have made available ends at December 31, 2010.

By the way, download and use this data at your own peril. We make absolutely no claim that this is not more than a collection of numerical junks.

    Hello Adedeji,

    Really Nice work with the data on historical stock prices although a lot of gaps exist between 2000 & 2001. …How does one reference the source for these figures though?
