Is it possible to webscrape moneycontrol site for (top gainers section) for a strategy i require?Can i be blocked?
technically you can web scrape most stuff, only some ajax type content usually has issues that need complex workaround,
but MC pages aren't like that.
Regarding block, only someone doing can tell you how often you can query without issues.
BeautifulSoup html parser in Py did work in MC pages. I was not constantly hitting the server, just a few hits to test scraping when NSE old site had issues.
