Download Historical Data of BSE and NSE Indices

Use this Excel tool to download historical data of 43 indices from the BSE and NSE extracted from Moneycontrol.

Finding a reliable source of historical index data to use for the Multi-index Mutual Fund Rolling Returns Calculator and the Mutual Fund Risk and Return Analyzer V 4.0 is an ongoing journery for me.

First I tried to get it straight from the BSE: S&P BSE Indices Historical Data Downloader. They changed the layout and that went phut.

Then from a combination of Yahoo Finance. and NSE. Thanks to Mahesh Mirpuri, realized that Yahoo was not updating indices. Hence the present sheet.

    1. Hi, thanks for this suggestion. I had a look. I think it will work best if I wrote a code to pull data from their site to mine and then served it users. Also i don’t see many indices there.

  1. I think what you said was very logical. But, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier post title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid., but suppose
    you added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I
    mean Download Historical Data of BSE and NSE Indices is kinda boring.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create
    post titles to get viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab
    people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit
    more interesting.

  2. Thanks for the Data Downloader. Very helpful.
    Please also suggest how to get Historical daily EOD data for continuous futures like NIFTY-I and BANKNIFTY-I

  3. Is there any data extractor available at any website which’ll help me to extract the historical data (yearly basis) of all the companies listed on NSE and BSE. Right now I’m recording the data individually from Money control website. It’s very time consuming. Appreciate any help I can get. Thank you.
