#470944 - 02/13/18 21:07 AssetVars in Asset Lists

From the manual AssetVars can be entered in the asset list behind the Symbol column but how to access them? Let me say an asset list looks like:
Code:
..., Commission, Symbol, TOCom
..., 0, BTC/USD, 0.0026


Do I find the value 0.0026 automatically in AssetVar[0] independent from the column's name "TOCom" (so it's better not to use AssetVar[0] otherwise in the script) or is there another way?

Thanks, Sphin

Hi Sphin,

Once you call

asset(Assets[i]);

where i=0,1,2,3,... labels the assets in the AssetList.csv that you loaded, AssetVar[0] will refer to your TOCom value in the i-th row.
Yes, the row with the names does not interfere with the values. The first row (i==0) refers to the first actual asset row in your list.

Thanks. You mean if I call asset("BTCUSD") than AssetVar[0] has the value from the column TOCom of the row beginning with "BTCUSD" from the loaded asset list? Then I understood. laugh

Yep, exactly!
At least, that is how it worked in the DualMomentum code I played around with.
I don't know if you actually want to hard code "BTCUSD" string or similar though... Code might be more powerful if you access the different assets by using "Assets[i]". Then you can switch out the asset list and test the system on different ones without changing any lines in the code. laugh Like, if tomorrow you decide to trade a different crypto than BTC for example.

This I think about as a maybe last step of optimizing in a completed code. But during development I like more using names of assets because pointing at them through an array means to add a potential point of failure in - and I know myself - choosing the wrong one and later wondering about issues.

I see, yeah, makes sense!
