Hi, where can I find a full list of the Equity codes that are available?

Hey @DroidMaster -- Good question,

Here is the raw CSV with the list of symbols: Download Symbol File

We also made the back-end for doing a symbol look up in the IDE but never completed it: you can find that look up engine here; Autocomplete Search (just change the "AA" URL with the first letters of your symbol)

Jared - There are a few duplicate symbols (approx 180) in the symbol file. For example AGD appears three times.

How would one specify they want AGD symbol for APPLIED GRAPHICS rather than AGD for ALARMGUARD? Is there a way to specify the exchange?

Adding to the confusion, Google and Yahoo Finance pull up Alpine Global Dynamic Dividend Fund when I specify AGD (the third entry in your list). The first two are not found by name!?!! Maybe they trade over-the-counter, or on an exchange outside the US?

Would it be possible to add a column in the symbol file for the exchange and/or country?

Regards;
Marc.

Hey @Marc! There can be repeated symbols as the exchanges re-use them when companies get unlisted or companies change symbols. QuantQuote has a system for mapping the current symbol to its historical counter parts which is discussed here: (https://quantquote.com/historical-stock-data)

This mapping is automatically handled in QuantConnect -- we map the symbols for you. So just request the current name of the symbol and we'll map to its historical names.

They stocks are all US equities -- but just from different companies over the 15 years. I think Yahoo and Google remove the symbols from their search once they are unlisted.

What we really need is the Symbol, Date Listed and Date Unlisted so we can get a list of the universe stepping forward in time. Each day the universe will be different. We have this information but I will need to check with QuantQuote to make sure they don't mind it being released.

HIYA!

SPXS is in the list, but doesn't pull data or trade in backtests. 

What is the proceedure for reporting unlisted/unfound/NoData symbols that are in the list?
