< Back

This function allows you to query MarketXLS databases with formulas database on our servers to get useful insights about the price & volume.

Function Structure:

=Mxls_db_query(“What Database”, “What Symbol”, “What do you want to query” i.e. Volume, Open, High, Low, Close, Dividend, Split, returns “, “How do you want to aggregate” i.e. sum, average, max, min, variance, standarddeviation, “How far you want to go in days” 1, 100, 200, etc)

The database can be either “historical” and “fundamental”

So, to get the minimum low a symbol has moved to in last 100 days, type

=MXLS_DB_Query("historical", "MSFT" , "low", "min", "100")

To get the average of daily returns of stock in last 100 days, type =mxls_db_query("Historical","msft","returns","average",100)

To get the average of the daily returns of MSFT from a specific date in the past to another date uses the function as shown below. The last argument in this function can accept start and end dates in YYYY-MM-DD format as shown below. You will need to separate the dates by a ^ sign as shown in the example below.

This example below will return the acerage of the daily returns for MSFT from 2019-01-15 to 2020-06-21/
=mxls_db_query("Historical","msft","returns","average","2019-01-15^2020-06-21")

You can also get and calculate the analytical functions on the MarketXLS database and quickly get values like Growth Rate (CAGR), trend, average growth as shown below.

=mxls_db_query("Fundamental","MSFT","eps","growth","5y") this gets the CAGR for 5 years of EPS
=mxls_db_query("Fundamental","MSFT","revenue","trend","5y") this gets the trend, increasing decreasing, etc
=mxls_db_query("Fundamental","MSFT","revenue","avggrowth","5y") this gets the average of annual growth rates
=mxls_db_query("Fundamental","MSFT","revenue","sum","5y") this gets the sum

mxls_db_query function can use the following keys for the items. So, for example, if you want to use this function on Long Term Debt use ltdebt as shown in the example below.
=mxls_db_query("Fundamental","MSFT","ltdebt","avggrowth","5y") gets the Average growth of the long term debt in last 5 years.
