Documentation

Hi got a newbie question:

Is there any other documentation source other than https://www.quantconnect.com/docs/home/home and https://www.quantconnect.com/lean/docs#topic100.html?

Having trouble understanding some of the syntax. Example below:

What is the k parameter, and what are the acceptable moving average types for the Bollinger Band indicator?

BB(Symbol symbol, int period, decimal k, MovingAverageType movingAverageType = null, Resolution resolution = null, Func`2[Data.IBaseData,Decimal] selector = null)

Check out this:

This indicator creates a moving average (middle band) with an upper band and lower band
fixed at k standard deviations above and below the moving average.

I'd suggest you try in this order:

  1. Search for relevant keywords through the Documentation, as sometimes the information you are looking for is a small snippet on some other page. When you see the "three small cubes" icon, make sure you click on it for more information.
  2. Look at Example/Demonstration Algorithms
  3. If all else fails, dig through the public LEAN repository

Thanks Adam. I don't see the BB description you quoted on the link you sent. Also tried different browsers.

I did find the description on https://www.quantconnect.com/lean/documentation/topic28393.html

A bit suspicious there is something not right shown in my browser when I go to quantconnect sites. The Tutorial and Videos link at the bottom of the pages do not work and amis there really an apostrophe in the BB description, i.e. ...Func`2[Data.... ?

Thanks.

Have discovered the API tab in the coding environment. This has good documentation.
