Back

Buying 2 stocks

Hi there, 

I would just like to see the returns for a small selection of stocks, however when I run a back test, no trades are made, could someone help me?

Thanks.

import numpy as np


class BasicTemplateAlgorithm(QCAlgorithm):

def Initialize(self):


self.SetStartDate(2017, 12, 20)
self.SetEndDate(2018, 12, 20)
self.SetCash(100000)

self.AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Second)
self.symbols = ["KORS",
"BA"]

def OnData(self, data):

group1 = ["KORS", "BA"]

if not self.Portfolio.Invested:
self.SetHoldings("group1", 1)

The SetHoldings does not accept a string with the name of a list variable.
You could do something like this:

def OnData(self, data):
target = 1.0 / len(self.symbols)
for symbol in self.symbols:
if not self.Portfolio[symbol].Invested:
self.SetHoldings(symbol, target)

Please find a complete and working algorithm attached.
