Hi guys, I'm a bit new to this website and am in need of some help. I want to try and use a SMAVG to define long and short leverage. I have the code below...but its not working and I can't figure out why! Help would be greatly appreciated!
context.stock = symbol('SPY')
def record_mavg(context, data):
context.price = data.current(context.stock, 'price')
price_history = data.history(context.stock, 'price', 80, '1d')
long_mavg = price_history.mean()
if (short_mavg < long_mavg): context.short_leverage = -0.5 context.long_leverage = 1.0 elif (short_mavg > long_mavg): context.short_leverage = -1.0 context.long_leverage = 0.5
short_leverage and long_leverage are then used further on in the code, not trading the SPY but other stocks...but the leveraged is based on SPY market sentiment.
