Mozenda Xpath scraper with possible Excel-VBA to extract eSignal RTD (stock data)
Closed - This job posting has been filled.
The mozenda agent is already accessing a pw site. The Page List is already built out for the required fields/data to capture. The agent moves backwards in time noted by a calendar/date on each page collecting data. The challenge here is to move back in time. Dates on the page and associated key words trigger the correct page to scrape. Only data is collected, no images. Sample page source will be sent to candidate. Mozenda/Xpath are only requirements for above. This job needs to begin very soon and will get moved to another hire site if Contractor is not chosen soon.
EXCEL required for below:
Not included in this scraping project, but the next phase, is to take collected data and mash against eSignal RTD historical stock data to expand the data set. A very small Excel interface will be used to review a column of data, go out to eSignal RTD retrieve data.
Ultimately "what-if" analysis takes place in Excel with graphing; data-mining.
