Want to Scrape Stock Market Data with Python

I’m wanting to scrape stock market data with Python and am what guides and strategies are currently available to accomplish this. Overall, my goal is to track multiple stock prices, organize them into an easy-to-read CSV file that will update itself with the push of a button, and collect hundreds of data points in a few seconds. Any advice on the best way to do this?

If you are looking for that kind of response time I’d suggest using an API and not using web scraping.

But there is nothing domain-specific about the task you are asking about so any article/tutorial on web scraping would do. The same goes for piping it into a file, that task is also not domain-specific.
