Using Python and Pandas to Generate Stock Correlations

Pandas for Python is a powerful library for manipulating data. This tutorial will also introduce the relatively new Pandas Datareader which makes the task of getting stock data from several sites a trivial exercise.

This tutorial uses Python 3.6, but the code will work as is in Python 2.7.xx. If you do not already have a scientific Python installation there are several open source products out there including python(x,y), Canopy and Anaconda. You can get a copy of the notebook used in the video here.
