Hello vishalsjain,

As I monitor only a few active counters I normally go to the following page and copy the symbols from there.

On this page you can get the most actives, top gainers and top losers on both the NSE & BSE.

BTW can you tell me which download software do you use?

I can upload the list in excel form if some one can tell me how to do it. Is there any FILES section on this board where files can be uploaded ?

I can also send you the file to your email address. But I think it would also be a good idea to upload it to the FILES section where it will be available to every one who needs it.

There is a file in this same discussion forum where a member called a_n_i_l has uploaded the symbols as a text file. Maybe you can have a look at it. You can also upload files along with your message.

Hi Anil has already sent the same in text files on this thread: - Discussion forum for Indian Stocks & Commodities > TOOLS & RESOURCES > Software & Data.

I have the same data. But in excel format. If some one still wants it in excel file ( one file contains all the data ) please let me know.


I know this question is very basic, but bear with me. In the yahoo finance site and also in data bulls, there are some company names with au attached. What does this au signify ? like there is INFY.NS and INFYau.ns .

Can anyone please clarify ?

Thanks and regards,
