Hi folks - Is the 'SID' securities reference system used in Quantopian algorithms proprietary to Quantopian or a public resource?
The reason I ask is because I am trying to build a reference list of Corporate Social Responsibility stocks and I'd like to include SIDs so that people can easily plug them into algorithms. The thing is, I don't want to have to manually look up stocks to do it!
Is there a CSV anywhere that I can get hold of to create the resource, preferably based on company name and ticker symbol? SIDs was our first method of adding securities to your algorithm. The mechanism is a unique to Quantopian and it maps a company to its trading ticker, since symbols may be reused over time. That being said, we recently added the symbols method to reference securities.

Alisa, is there a way to get hold of the SID list that Quantopian uses e.
I could then include the SIDs in the list of ethical stocks that I am pulling together and will share on the forum. Unfortunately we can't release the full SID to company mapping because of our contract restrictions with our vendor for historical data. Alisa, understood - I will simply create the spreadsheet using the Symbols function then. Thanks for the reply.
Would it be possilbe for you guys to compile a list of tickers available on Quantopian and place it as a CSV somewhere? Sorry, something went wrong. Try again or contact us by sending feedback.
