I am using Python 3 on Windows 7.

However, I am unable to download some of the data listed in the web
site as follows:


453.IMC 98.28M 18.44M 4.32 5.33 1499.Optiver 70.91M 13.29M 3.12 5.34
7387.花旗环球 52.72M 9.84M 2.32 5.36

When I use Google Chrome and use 'View Page Source', the data does not
show up at all. However, when I use 'Inspect', I can able to read the


'<th>1499.Optiver </th>'
'<td> 70.91M</td>'
'<td>13.29M </td>'

Please kindly explain to me if the data is hide in CSS Style sheet or
is there any way to retrieve the data listed.

Thank you

Regards, Crusier

    broker_url = 'http://data.tsci.com.cn/stock/'
    end_url = '/STK_Broker.htm'

    for code in stock_code:

        new_url  = broker_url + code + end_url
        response = requests.get(new_url)
        html = response.content
        soup = BeautifulSoup(html, "html.parser")
        Buylist = soup.find_all('div', id ="BuyingSeats")
        Selllist = soup.find_all('div', id ="SellSeats")
