Does anyone know of a publicly available dataset for S&P500 index published daily in json format?

Took a look at quandl but nothing for free. Google searches bring back a whole host of unhelpful sponsored ads, old data or monthly publications.

  • $\begingroup$ Why not just pull it down in csv and parse into JSON? $\endgroup$ – Kch Jan 1 '18 at 21:10

try the Bloomberg API: https://www.bloomberg.com/markets/chart/data/1D/SPX:IND

I hope it's what you're looking for.

    $\begingroup$ This looks close! I'm looking for the last year of close values though. How did you navigate to the API - I find the SPX:IND quote at the below link and don't see the option? bloomberg.com/quote/SPX:IND $\endgroup$ – DVCITIS Jan 2 '18 at 20:59

  • $\begingroup$ Sadly it appears Bloomberg blocks traffic to this endpoint from AWS ip addresses. I have not found a good alternative for scripts running there. $\endgroup$ – Michael Graczyk Apr 23 at 3:34
