I have problem with uploading. Documentation says not much about primary asset column format.
Primary Asset: A column must be selected as the primary asset. This symbol column is used to identify assets on that date. If you have multiple share classes of an asset, those should be identified on the symbol with a delimiter (-,/,.,_). ex: "BRK_A" or "BRK/A"
Note: Blank values will cause errors. Records that cannot be mapped from symbols to assets in the Quantopian US equities database will be skipped
But event listed rules doesn't work. I need to upload symbols with names containing
1AF-FRA), but system just skip all such rows. So I've made a little test. From this example
date,symbol,price 2014-01-01,a,1 2014-01-01,A,1 2014-01-01,1,1 2014-01-01,A1,1 2014-01-01,1A,1 2014-01-01,A-A,1 2014-01-01,A.A,1 2014-01-01,A/A,1 2014-01-01,A_A,1
only two rows are uploaded
2014-01-01,A_A,1. But from file
date,symbol,price 2014-01-01,TIF/B,1204.5 2014-01-01,TIF_B,1204.5 2014-01-01,TIF.B,1204.5 2014-01-01,TIF-B,1204.5 2014-01-01,TIF,1204.5 2014-01-01,A1TIF,1204.5
2014-01-01,TIF,1204.5 is accepted.
Could you please explain (better inside documentation) what are
Primary Asset column format requirements? Thank you.
