DayOfWeek in CoarseSelectionFilter() method

Hi,

I am simply trying to write the day of the week in my CoarseSelectionFilter():

def Initialize(self):
self.SetStartDate(1998, 1, 1)
self.SetEndDate(1998, 3, 1)

self.MinPriceForSelectionFilter = 10.0
self.NumAssets = 10

self.SetCash(100000)

self.AddUniverse(self.CoarseSelectionFilter)
# what resolution should the data *added* to the universe be?
self.UniverseSettings.Resolution = Resolution.Daily


def CoarseSelectionFilter(self, coarse):

self.Debug(self.Time.DayOfWeek)

But I get this error:

Runtime Error: AttributeError : 'datetime.datetime' object has no attribute 'DayOfWeek'
at CoarseSelectionFilter in main.py:line 24

 

It looks to me that Time is a .net dateTime object so I don't understand why I get this error?

ANy help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jambo,

`self.Time` is a Python datetime object. To get the day of week value, we need to call

self.Time.weekday()

See the attached backtest for reference.

Best,
