Quandl Excel Add In

A few weeks ago, I blogged about Quandl, a search engine for datasets. Well, they have just released an Excel add in that allows a person to pull a dataset from Quandl straight into an Excel spreadsheet. It is very new, so Quandl would appreciate your comments and any bugs you may find.

    I guess this feature is useful only far as Excel’s limitations goes.

      Ha, true. However, quite a bit can be done with Excel. It is clearly the best Microsoft Office product.

    Nice. Thanks for the info. Have you tried the St. Louis Federal reserve Excel add-on?

    1. Ryan Swanstrom Avatar

      No, I have not. What types of data does the federal reserve release?

      Thanks for commenting,

    FRED is an aggregator for about 60,000 datasets from about 50 different sources. It’s all time-series economic data: growth, inflation, unemployment, interest rates, exchange rates and so on. More here: http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/.

    Incidentally, Quandl already includes all 60,000+ datasets from FRED in its index, plus another ~3 million datasets from another ~250 sources. So it’s a kind of Super-FRED, so to speak 🙂

    Thanks for the kind words about Quandl, Ryan!

    I’m looking to move Quandl data to Excel and from there to NinjaTrader. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

      I am not sure I am much help there. Maybe you should try to reach out to the Quandl team and speak with them. They have an email link on the about page. http://www.quandl.com/about Good Luck!
