Introduction

The Trading Economics Application Programming Interface (API) provides direct access to 300.000 economic indicators, exchange rates, stock market indexes, government bond yields and commodity prices. It allows you to download millions of rows of historical data, to query our real-time economic calendar and to subscribe to updates. Providing several request methods to query our databases, with samples available in different programming languages, it is the best way to export data in XML, CSV or JSON format. The API can be used to feed a custom developed application, a public website or just off-the-shelf software like Microsoft Excel. More at Trading Economics.

You can get Python from: https://www.python.org/downloads/
We support Python 2.7. Then you need to install the tradingeconomics package. You can do so in a variety of ways.


Install the tradingeconomics package using pip, a package management system used to install and manage software packages written in Python. In Windows Command Prompt or Linux bash type:

pip install tradingeconomics

Download the Trading Economics Excel Add In installer, launch it and follow the instructions.
We support Excel 2010, 2013, 2016 (32bit and 64bit).


After installing the Trading Economics Excel Add In click on TE tab and than click on login button and follow instructions.

You can get R from the official website: https://cran.r-project.org/ Then you need to install the tradingeconomics package. At this moment our package is available to download from the GitHub repository. See below how to install a package that’s sitting on GitHub.


Install the devtools package. You can do this from CRAN. Invoke R and then type:

install.packages("devtools")

Load the devtools package.

library(devtools)

Install the tradingeconomics package.

install_github("ieconomics/open-api/R/tradingeconomics")

To start using the Trading Economics R package, type in command window:

library(tradingeconomics)

If you already have an APIkey then type:

login('Your_Key:Your_Secret')

If you don’t have an APIkey and just want to try a demo of our API:

login()

To start using the Trading Economics Python package, open the python command line, and type:

import tradingeconomics as te

If you already have an APIkey then type:

te.login('Your_Key:Your_Secret')

If you don’t have an APIkey and just want to try a demo of our API:

te.login()

Before proceeding select your language tab on the right.

Multiple Parameters

Almost all of the Trading Economics WEB API methods support multiple parameters.
Whenever a method requires a country name or indicator name to be specified, you can provide more than one of each, separated by commas.
Here is a practical example:
historical/country/portugal,brazil,russia/indicator/gdp,currency

Data Types

You can request data in several formats:

Authentication

The API provides different methods of authorization. Each request made against API must be supplied with authentication credentials.

Authorization parameters must be provided in the URL query or in the Request Reader.

Using URL auth:
curl -i "https://api.tradingeconomics.com/country/united%20states/?client=guest:guest"
Using Headers auth:
curl -i "https://api.tradingeconomics.com/country/united%20states/" -H "Authorization: Client guest:guest"

Without APIkeys all requests will return the default sample data.

Indicators

Here you can get a list of all indicators, indicators by country, country-indicator pair and historical information for specific country and indicator. Click on any method below for a sample. Please note the sample request is limited in scope to a few countries and indicators and responds with a maximum of 10 rows. Trading Economics live acounts have access to more than 20 million indicators for nearly 200 countries.

For example, next code will provide information in data frame format about a number of companies in Italy that got bankrupt

getIndicatorData(country = 'italy', indicator = 'bankruptcies', outType = 'df')

    Country     Category              Title LatestValue     LatestValueDate Source      Unit                 URL CategoryGroup Frequency HistoricalDataSymbol PreviousValue   PreviousValueDate

To get several countries and indicators

getIndicatorData(country = c('united states','china'), indicator = c('gdp','inflation rate'), outType = 'df')

To get List of Indicators by Country:

te.getIndicatorData(country = ['united states', 'china'])

To get Country/Indicator pair:

te.getIndicatorData(country = 'united states', indicators = 'gdp')

Click Indicators button on TE ribbon and then follow the instructions in the dialog box. Or type in any empty cell:

Historical

For example, to get historical data of imports in United Kingdom type:

getHistoricalData(country = 'united kingdom', indicator = 'imports')

To get historical data for several countries and indicators:

getHistoricalData(country = c('united states','china'), indicator = c('gdp','population'),
                  initDate = '2006-01-01', endDate = '2016-12-31',
                  outType = 'df')

In some cases (getCalendarData and getHistoricalData), the start date (initDate) and end date (endDate) of the results can be specified.

In [2]: te.getHistoricalData(country = 'united kingdom', indicator = 'gdp', endDate= '2015-01-01')

Out[2]: 
                  0
2006-12-31  2588.08
2007-12-31  2969.73
2008-12-31  2793.38
2009-12-31  2314.58
2010-12-31  2403.50
2011-12-31  2594.90
2012-12-31  2630.47
2013-12-31  2712.30
2014-12-31  2990.20

Note: Making request for one country and one indicator, without putting country name and indicator name in square brackets, will return pandas.DataFrame type(example above).

Putting country name or indicator name in square brackets will return a dictionary type. For several countries and indicators

te.getHistoricalData(country = ['united states', 'china'], indicator = ['exports','imports', 'gdp'], 
                     initDate= '1990-01-01', endDate= '2015-01-01')

Forecast

Next code will provide a list with forecasted values of all indicators of United States

getForecastData(country ='united states')

To get data in data frame format type:

getForecastData(country ='united states', outType = 'df')

To get data in data frame format type for several countries and indicators:

getForecastData(country =c('united states','china'), indicator = c('gdp','inflation rate'), outType = 'df')

Forecasted values for specific a country, in this case United States.

te.getForecastData(country = 'united states', output_type = 'df')
