Eric, 

I'm really enjoying the course and have learned a lot, so thank you for all the time you've taken to put this together and explain the QuantConnect system!

Is there any way you can post the code here so I can take a look at the final product and see what I've done wrong? I'm on Lecture 10 (Multiple Symbols), and there is a part where your video is in the way of the code. This happens to be where I'm having problems and I can't seem to figure it out. The "X"'s on the right show where the errors are.

public class SymbolData
{
public Symbol Symbol;

public string BaseSymbol;

public MovingAverageConvergenceDivergence Macd;

public SymbolData(Symbol symbol, string BaseSymbol);
X {
X Symbol = symbol;
baseSymbol = baseSymbol;
}
}
}
}

Hey Joshua! Glad you're enjoying the course. Sorry for the trouble there.

Here is the code for the SymbolData class...





/// Contains data pertaining to a symbol in our algorithm

public class SymbolData

{

/// This symbol the other data in this class is associated with

public Symbol Symbol;



public string BaseSymbol;



/// The simple moving average indicator for our symbol

public MovingAverageConvergenceDivergence Macd;



/// Initializes a new instance of SymbolData

public SymbolData(Symbol symbol, string baseSymbol)

{

Symbol = symbol;

BaseSymbol = baseSymbol;

}

}





Hope this helps! Happy coding

Eric, 

Thanks for the info! I found my issues and the algo works.

Do you have plans to create any additional courses on QuantConnect? I'm having difficulty with the frameworks, and I think there is a lot of potential there.

Joshua-



Glad I could help! Right now I'm gearing up to launch a YouTube channel

Crypto Catalyst where I'll be regularly posting short videos about using

QC. And also a Python version of the course you just took. Thanks for the

interest!



I'm still figuring out frameworks myself.



Happy coding,

Be sure to post a link to your Youtube channel so we can subscribe. Your tutorials have been the most helpful I've seen so far. 

I am waiting to trade Crypto, but in the meantime, I've been trying to adapt your tutorials to Forex. You gave me a lot more confidence to work with QC just as I was ready to throw in the towel. 

Thank you again for all of your work.

Thanks!
