Hi. I need SimpleMovingAverage of last 20 days of DollarVolume for my algo. I see that DollarVolume is available in CoarseFundamental as part of coarse selection function. How can I get the last 20 days of this data? Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi,

that is not build in by default. 

I would creat a dictionary with symbols as keys and SMAs as values. 

Btw. in my opinion it is better to use the market cap as a selection criteria. It is more stable than dollarVolume and I guess that is what you are aming for. 

Use this in Coarse:

var list = (from c in coarse
where c.HasFundamentalData
select c).ToList();

splitFactorBySymbol.Clear();
splitFactorBySymbol = list.GroupBy(x => x.Symbol).Select(x => x.First()).ToDictionary(x => x.Symbol, x => x.SplitFactor);

And this in Fine:

// market Cap calculation
var marketCapList = (from f in fine
let marketCap = (decimal)(f.EarningReports.BasicAverageShares.ThreeMonths * f.Price * splitFactorBySymbol[f.Symbol])
orderby marketCap
select marketCap.. or symbol ..).ToList();

Thanks Eugene. I am using a Dictionary to track these values currently. Just having to wait 20 days for the SMA to be ready was cumbersome so I was hoping to find a better way. I will try using market cap instead and see if it gives similar results. Thanks again for the pointer!

Sameer,

Did you try using History method?

 

private Symbol benchmarkSymbol;

....
benchmarkSymbol = AddEquity("SPY", Resolution.Daily).Symbol;
....

var history = History(benchmarkSymbol, movingAverageLength, Resolution.Daily);
