Volume of the day for Universe of Stocks

Hi,

I want to know if it's possible to check for example at 10:00 the most traded stocks based on Volume of stocks traded. For what I understand this code is not doing that, because it checks for "yesterday" volume, not the volume up to 10:00 of the same day:

 

def MyCoarseFilterFunction(self, coarse):
sortedByVolume = sorted(coarse, key=lambda x: x.Volume, reverse=True)
filtered = [ x.Symbol for x in sortedByVolume if x.Price > 10 and x.Volume > 50000 ]
return filtered[:100]

 

What I want is to check for universe of stocks that have more than 50.000 volume traded (not dollars, number of stocks), at 10:00.

I can acomplish this only by setting up "MyCoarseFilterFunction" inside a scheluded function?

Appreciate someone can point me in the right direction.

Hi Cristian,

It is not possible to subscribe to security datafeeds through cumulative intraday volume filtering inside a universe selection method. However, we can create a workaround to determine which of the securities in our universe pass the intraday volume requirements by add a universe and a scheduled event to our algorithm.

# Initialize
self.AddUniverseSelection(CoarseFundamentalUniverseSelectionModel(self.CoarseSelectionFunction))

self.Schedule.On(
self.DateRules.EveryDay("SPY"),
self.TimeRules.At(10, 0),
self.SelectUniverse
)

self.universe = []
self.volume_by_symbol = {}

In the CoarseSelectionFunction, we filter the stocks by the price threshold.

def CoarseSelectionFunction(self, coarse):
self.volume_by_symbol = {c.Symbol: 0 for c in coarse if c.Price > 400}
return list(self.volume_by_symbol.keys())

We then track the cumulative volume for all the symbols in the universe from the open until 10AM.

def OnData(self, data):
if len(self.volume_by_symbol) == 0:
# universe is ready. Access with self.universe
return

for symbol in self.volume_by_symbol.keys():
if data.ContainsKey(symbol):
self.volume_by_symbol[symbol] += data[symbol].Volume

Lastly, we define the SelectUniverse method to filter by the intraday volume seen thus far.

def SelectUniverse(self):
self.universe = []

for symbol, volume in self.volume_by_symbol.items():
if volume > 50000:
self.universe.append(symbol)

self.volume_by_symbol.clear()

See the attached backtest for reference. Also, consider reviewing our documentation on scheduled events.

Best,

Hi Cristian,

In regards to the first question, the only limit imposed on the number of securities an algorithm's universe can have is from the amount of available RAM. If needed, the backtesting node on an account can be upgraded to increase the RAM. See the specs of the available nodes in our documentation.

To resolve the error the backtest throws when setting `c.Price > 300`, we need to add

and data[symbol] is not None

to the condition on line 32. See the attached backtest for reference.

For the second post above, setting the argument passed to the universe method to 3000 returns a larger universe. We just need to ensure we build the project after making changes.

Best,
Derek Melchin
