I am new to programming in C#. I have some code that calculates Beta on a list of stocks and output the values to a text file.

Anyone who can see why the script is not working?

Thanks,

Install Community.Indicators from Extensions and run this code, making sure the number of bars loaded is at least = Beta Period:

Hi,

I copied / pasted the following code to my strategy:
CODE:

But the code returns `type or namespace name Beta doesnt exist.... are you missing an assembly difference?` error.

- I think I have an updated version of community components,
- Used `using Community.Components;` in the directives,
- And, despite the fact that I dont need to, I gave a reference to the respective dll that is saved under the wealthlab default folder.

Still, this code doesnt work for me.

Any suggestions?

thanks in advance.

I am sorry, it is the `community indicators` not the `community components` that I should be using.

problem is resolved.

thanks.

Hi Aykut,

The only suggestion is to carefully reread my post #2 above:

* The very first sentence in post #2 instructs to install Community Indicators.
* The code in #2 doesn't refer to Community Components at all.
* Beta is an indicator. So you need to add a "using Community Indicators"; instead.

I know we've all been there. Happened to me as well. ;)
