  1. does anyone have a list of all publicly traded stocks? tickers only would be fine? i'm trying to create a program to gather data on every stock that trades on an exchange... trying to find list (excel etc.) has been more than challenging... any thoughts?

    also did you mean the US or the whole world?

    List of all symbols includes different ETFs (with leverage, inverse), preferred shares, ADRs etc etc. I don't think you want that.

    I would suggest starting with a list of stocks in some well know index like S&P 500 (just large cap) or S&P 1500 (Large cap, mid cap and small cap). I didn't find good free source so I am tracking this list myself.
