Help Debugging Custom Imported Data from Dropbox

Hello,

I have a problem with my Project. I have done all right for my opinion - no errors. But when I start the backtest, there is no result - nothing happens.
I am thinking that the imported data .csv file is not compatible.

If you can please have a quick check. Thanks in advance.

Best, 
Iztok

Hi Iztok,

The algorithm above is not importing the data properly from the Dropbox URL. To assist, I've attached a sample algorithm that successfully reads in the data and logs it. I have left the strategy logic unattended.

Some things to note when importing data:

  • Dropbox URLs used as a data source should have the "?dl=1" parameter.
  • Our documentation has several examples that we can adjust to import the Dropbox data provided.
  • It is easier to import data from a CSV file when the file is formatted correctly. Viewing the data in the browser shows the A column really contains 3 separate pieces of data.

Best,
Derek Melchin
