I have a simple question I cant seem to find a strait answer for.

Suppose I have a data frame with date, open, high, low, close and volume.

What I am trying to do is first find the current date which I can do with:

today = pd.datetime.today().date()

My issue comes in selecting the last 20 days of data from the current date.

I need to select the last 20 rows because I need to then find the highest and lowest values in the close colum of this dataset.

Any pointers would help a lot. Iv searched google for a while and keep finding different answers.

Thanks!

Use df[-20:] for getting the last 20 lines from a DataFrame

If you want to have the date 20 days ago, use  pd.Timedelta(-19, unit='d') + pd.datetime.today().date().

In [1]: index = pd.date_range(start=(pd.Timedelta(-30, unit='d')+pd.datetime.today().date()), periods=31)

In [2]: df = pd.DataFrame(np.random.rand(31, 4), index=index, columns=['O', 'H', 'L', 'C'])

In [3]: df = df.reset_index().rename(columns={'index': 'Date'})

In [4]: df

Out[4]:

I have setted up the code this way:

today = pd.datetime.today().date()

df = pd.DataFrame(

    np.random.rand(20, 4),

    pd.date_range(end=today, periods=20, freq='3D'),

    columns=['O', 'H', 'L', 'C'])

df

To solve it:

I am using the DateTime index slicing. This is a simple method if we use the panda's devs for this problem.

df[today - pd.offsets.Day(20):]

                   O         H         L         C

2017-09-09  0.537892  0.852527  0.082807  0.966297

2017-09-27  0.921168  0.568595  0.460656  0.016313

Note: The code used will grab all the rows which are present within the last 20days.
