Struggling to code my strategy. Need help

I was wondering if someone could help me code a strategy. Shouldn't be to terribly difficult but I can't seem to get it working. It would consist of a simple moving average, market cap, and 52 week market high. If specific parameters are met it would buy and hold for a week.

Let me know if you are interested. If I'm correct the results will be pretty nice.

We made some changes on the EmaCrossUniverseSelectionAlgorithm to include the 52 week market high. Since you didn't specify how we create a score to pick the stocks, we came out with this:

public decimal ScaledDelta
{
get
{
var smaScore = (Fast - Slow)/((Fast + Slow)/2m);
var maxScore = (Max - _value)/((Max + _value)/2m);
return smaScore + maxScore;
}
}

Market cap is not available in out Fundamentals database. Please checkout the available data here. As an example, we have used P/E ratio instead:

public IEnumerable<Symbol> FineSelectionFunction(
IEnumerable<FineFundamental> fine)
{
// sort descending by P/E ratio
var sortedByPeRatio = fine
.OrderByDescending(x => x.ValuationRatios.PERatio);

// take the top entries from our sorted collection
var topFine = sortedByPeRatio.Take(2);

// we need to return only the symbol objects
return topFine.Select(x => x.Symbol);
}

Here are the basics for your algorithm.
