Adding Custom Alpha to Framework Algorithm

Is there a way at this time to add a custom, or even a pre made alpha to the framework allgorithim. Wanting to add a varaition of the displaced moving average ribbon and I cant seem to get it to work. Anything that im missing?

Hi Ben Newsom 
Please check out the docs, under Alpha Creation, for more information about alpha models.
The main goal of the Algorithm Framework is that quants like you write your custom alpha models.

Hi, I looked through the docs and I can't find how to import a custom alpha from my algorithm lab. How would you structure the import statements to add the Custom Alpha?

Hi John,

Can you provide a backtest example of what you're trying to do? The easiest way to add an Alpha model to your algorithm is to put the class code in the main.py file or create another file in the project and import it locally. For example, if you have a file named MyAlphaModel.py in the project where you've named the Alpha model MyAlphaMode, you can import it like this.

from MyAlphaModel import MyAlphaModel

The pre-built Alphas, such as the RSI Alpha, can be added using

from Alphas.RsiAlphaModel import RsiAlphaModel

You can find the pre-built Alpha models here.
