R package for accessing the FMP Cloud and Financial Modeling Prep API. fmpcloudr can be used interchangeably with either API key. FMP Provides access to a wide range of financial data such as historical prices for stocks, indexes, cryptos, currencies, and commodities. FMP also provides data for 13F, Balance Sheet, Income Statements, Discounted Cash Flow, and much more. Create an account to get an API token and explore the fmpcloudr functions to see the capabilities.

See the article on analyzing the S&P 500 to see a detailed analysis and working example using FMP data.


You can install fmpcloudr using:

# Available on CRAN

# Pull the GitHub development version - currently same as CRAN
# install.packages("devtools")

Obtain an API Token

Register an API token on FMP Cloud or Financial Modeling Prep. To use the package without an API key, see the bottom section ‘Examples using a demo API’ for API calls on Apple.

Please note: for most functions, each symbol entered will generate a single API call. fmpc_set_token sets time between API calls so that no more than 10 calls will be made per second. However, raw number of calls can be breached depending on the subscription. For example, the free API tier allows for 250 API calls. This will be exceeded if 251 symbols are run through fmpc_price_history.

Pricing Functions

Get current and historical prices using a range of functions. Prices can be pulled for stocks, ETFs, Mutual Funds, Indexes, Crypto, Currencies, and Commodities. See the Market Information section below to explore all available symbols on FMP.

# Set API Token
# The default setting will buffer requests so that no more than 10 requests are made every second

# Change the options to suppress the bulk request warning or to decrease time between 
# API calls if the registered token allows for more than 10 API calls per second.
