Upload signals file to a factor.

Hello,

I have a signal file coming from an external source, with the following format

date | symbol | rank

Rank is between 100-1 and should tell us what to buy and what to short. I want to load this signal to a factor to do more factor analysis (using alphalens) on it. I don't know how to do it.

My latest trials are:
1- load the data set into a dataframe and use the dataframe in my pipeline
2- Inject the dataframe as a custom factor input

both failed.

More details:
1- Signal contains ranks for Russel1000 index once per year.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Ahmed,

Have a look at one of these posts on how to use the self serve feature on how to do this.
