How to Use Python and the Intrinio API for Financial Data in ChatGPT

August 22, 2023

Welcome to this exciting tutorial where we'll explore how to leverage the power of Python and the Intrinio API to fetch financial data seamlessly into ChatGPT. Intrinio provides a comprehensive collection of financial market data, and with the Intrinio Python SDK, accessing this data becomes a breeze. Whether you're a financial analyst, a data scientist, or just an enthusiast looking to explore the world of financial data, this guide will walk you through the process step-by-step.

What is Intrinio?

Intrinio is a leading financial data provider that offers a wide range of data feeds, including real-time and historical market data, company fundamentals, news, and more. Their API allows developers to access this data programmatically and build powerful financial applications. With the Intrinio Python SDK, integrating their data into your Python projects becomes seamless and straightforward.


Before we dive into the implementation, make sure you have the following set up on your system:

  • Python 3 installed on your machine.
  • An Intrinio account with an API key. You can sign up for a free trial account on the Intrinio website.

Installing the Intrinio Python SDK

To get started, we need to install the Intrinio Python SDK. Open up your terminal and execute the following command:

With the Intrinio Python SDK installed, we can now proceed to write some code to pull financial data into ChatGPT.

Fetching Stock Prices

Let's start by pulling historical stock prices for a specific company. We'll use the SecurityApi from the Intrinio SDK to achieve this. First, make sure to import the necessary modules:

Next, initialize the Intrinio API client by setting your API key:

Replace 'YOUR_INTRINIO_API_KEY' with the API key you obtained from your Intrinio account.

Now, let's write a function to fetch historical stock prices for a given company and date range:

In this function, we use the get_security_stock_prices method from the SecurityApi class to retrieve the historical stock prices for the specified company (ticker) within the specified date range (start_date and end_date).

Now let's use the function to fetch stock prices for Apple Inc. (AAPL) from January 1, 2023, to July 31, 2023:

Run this code, and you should see a list of dates along with the corresponding closing prices for Apple Inc. within the specified date range.

Retrieving Company Information

Besides fetching stock prices, we can also use the Intrinio API to retrieve detailed information about a specific company. Let's create a function to get company information:

Using this function, we can fetch information about Apple Inc. (AAPL):

Upon running this code, you'll get detailed information about Apple Inc., including its name, description, and CEO.


In this tutorial, we explored how to use Python and the Intrinio API to fetch financial data into ChatGPT. We covered the basics of installing the Intrinio Python SDK, fetching historical stock prices, and retrieving company information. 

The Intrinio API provides a vast array of financial data, opening up numerous possibilities for analysis and data-driven decision-making. You can further enhance this implementation by exploring other data endpoints offered by the Intrinio API, such as news, financial statements, and economic data. 

So go ahead and start experimenting with financial data, and leverage the power of Python, Intrinio, and ChatGPT to gain valuable insights into the world of finance.

Happy coding!
