I am looking for a free financial stock quote API that quotes historical information for Mutual Funds. Preferably JSON REST. I used to use Google, Yahoo but both are no longer available. All current free APIs seem to cover stocks but not mutual funds.


  • Have you tried quandl.com ?

  • Free? Otherwise what budget for how many queries per day? Also, what license do you need? Personal use, commercial use, redistribution?

  • @NicolasRaoul This is for personal use so the budget is minimal. I expect maybe once a day I will want to retrieve historical data a dozen mutual funds going back 5/10 years. The objective is to produce line graphs with the data comparing the funds activity over time periods. A separate time period graph will be produced for activity over the past week, month, quarter, year, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years.

  • Did you find any API? I'm also searching for a free api for mutual funds. May 24, 2020 at 6:36

1 Answer 1


Though I was unable to find a completely free solution, I did find:


Alpha provides 5 free API requests a minute, up to 500 a day.

Besides the throttling, the only downside is that mutual funds data only update once a day, usually not until the morning after.
