Stock Rotation and SetHoldings

I've created a rough stock rotation algorithm but it doesn't seem to purchase the stock. Is there anything wrong with it? I really appreciate any help.

Hi! I recently answered an earlier post and it seems to be around the same purchasing stock issue:

After the initialization none of the other methods are called. The solution in the link fixes the issue and should provide guidance for this situation as well. After a quick look it seems that there will might be some mismatching of types as well. When trying to figure out why an algorithm isn't working, self.Debug() becomes a useful tool. It can print out to the console and help track the coding logic to find errors. The link below will provide further documentation on its uses.
