There are several places where you can find sample algorithms for analyzing historical stock prices. Here are a few options:

  1. Online coding communities: Websites like GitHub and GitLab host many open-source projects related to stock analysis. You can search for repositories or projects related to historical stock price analysis, such as in Python, R, or any other programming language of your choice.
  2. Stock analysis platforms: Some stock analysis platforms provide sample algorithms and code snippets that you can use as a starting point. Examples of such platforms include Quantopian, AlgoTrader, and TradingView.
  3. Online forums and communities: Joining online forums and communities dedicated to algorithmic trading can be beneficial. Websites like QuantStackExchange and Reddit's r/algotrading have active communities where users share their algorithms and discuss various aspects of stock market analysis.
  4. Academic research and books: Academic research papers and books on algorithmic trading and quantitative finance can provide valuable insights into historical stock price analysis. Platforms like Google Scholar and databases like the SSRN (Social Science Research Network) can be helpful in finding relevant academic papers.
  5. Blogs and tutorials: Many finance and algorithmic trading blogs offer sample algorithms and code snippets. Websites like QuantStart, Quantopian's blog, and the QuantInsti blog are excellent resources for finding educational content and sample algorithms.


Remember, when using sample algorithms, it's crucial to understand and review the code before applying it to your own trading strategies. Also, ensure you comply with any licenses or usage restrictions associated with the code.
