Thank you for the welcome proxy of the indices!!!!
I have a few questions:
In Research, in the help page for get_fundamentals, it is stated that:
Before calling get_fundamentals, you first need to call the
fundamentals initializer once with
fundamentals = init_fundamentals()
Is the requirement valid for Research only?
In the IDE, get_fundamentals seems to work without initializer
It seems that the parameter
base_date: str in the format "YYYY-MM-DD"
is currently not used by the get_fundamentals.
Can you confirm it?
In the IDE I tried to provide a date as a string in the required format or as datetime.date or not to provide it at all.
The outcome of get_fundamentals seems to depend only from the backtesting date at which it is called.
How often is the "universe" in get_fundamentals updated?
In my backtesting I queried get_fundamentals the first 16 days in April 2014 obtaining apparently always the same output (including only GOOG_L).
Beginning from April 17, I started to observe together GOOG_L and GOOG in the first positions of the results.
But according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_S%26P_500_companies the GOOGLE stock split happened on April 3, 2014.
Is this split (and all the other S&P500/capitalization table changes) taken into account with the correct date in Q fundamental data?
