Here is an yet another interesting python tutorial to fetch intraday data using Google Finance API , store the data in csv format and also plot the intraday data as candlestick format. We are using plotly library for plotting candlestick charts and pandas to manage time-series data. Luckily found and interesting python code which fetches google intraday data and store in csv format. Done some little modification in the code (exchange added to the Google API) so that one can fetch data for any exchange.
In our example we try to retrieve the data (Date,Time,Symbol,Open,High,Low,Close,Volume data) for RCOM (Reliance Communication) and plot as candlesticks using plotly library. Download the sample RCOM CSV file fetched from Google Finance

In the next tutorial we will be discussing how to push intraday data to Amibroker software using python .
