Could you open an issue on GitHub with more details?
or even comment on that issue i linked to with more details?
@freddiev4 - are we able to ingest fundamental company data which is not in OHLCV format?

Guys is there any way we can use Zipline to plot returns of an algorithmic trader in a matplotlib graph?
@AzadQalamdar_twitter the results that come back from running an algorithm are a dataframe. You can easily plot these using matplotlib
Does zipline support bracket orders?
hi all, can anyone point me to some examples of using the zipline pipeline for research? I’ve used the quantopian research environment a bit but things don't seem to transfer easily into zipline. In particular, how can I make and run a pipeline in zipline?
Ric Jenkin
Hey all, when will zipline 1.2.0 be available?
Freddie Vargus
Hi @cncplyr I opened a release on GitHub yesterday ; trying to upload to PyPi/Anaconda today
Ric Jenkin
Awesome, thank you!
Freddie Vargus
@cncplyr just uploaded to PyPI
next is conda packages
hopefully you should be able to pip install zipline without any issues
Also zipline.io is updated with new docs; see: http://www.zipline.io/releases.html#release-1-2-0
Freddie Vargus
conda packages are there for Linux & Windows now; need to build macOS packages

I can't seem to update, it complains that empyrical 0.4.2 isn't available?
actually I can only see empyrical up to 0.3.4 available on Quantopian and conda-forge
ah nvm i see it in pypi
Freddie Vargus
@cncplyr good catch. forgot to add empyrical 0.4.2 to anaconda; just fixed that

Can Zipline handle backtests on rates futures?
the p&l calcs are more complicated
Jonathan Larkin
hi there. do you have a spec for public comment on how you will modify the security master and all other aspects of zipline to accommodate for non-US equities? Thanks.
Ahmet Can Acar
I m getting error while getting daily history data in minute mode
there is some bug issue solved already but i do not know how to benefit from it
not much familiar with github. Is there anyone giving directions about it?
Hey guys what wheel version do you use when installing zipline?
cause it always fails cause of wheels

Hi all, I see the data download for treasuries directly from the federal reserve website in zipeline/data/treasuries.py, but as a relative newcomer I'm not sure how to actually access them in an algorithm from within the context of a data.history() or zipline.api.symbol. Is it possible to point to a public quantopian algorithm or even a few lines here in gitter to grab, say, the current price of a 10year treasury, e.g. from ~/.zipline/data/treasury_curves.csv? Thanks! If I get a good example I can create a PR for the doc.
Erik Kastman
For example, I'm familiar with getting a pandas frame out of quandl's treasury dataset ("USTREASURY/YIELD"), but I'm not sure how to add it into an existing bundle (make up an equity sid for it and re-ingest?) I've also seen using ETFs that track the rate, but want to have the rate itself, not the price of the tracking ETF (though, actually I may want both). Does anyone have an example or suggestion?
Hi everyone, I am just getting started with Zipline and wanted to introduce myself. My summer internship will involve lots of Zipline usage, and it would be great to contribute to the community somehow
Erik Kastman
@calmitchell617 I'm not sure if this will be enough for you to re-implement it, but the notebook @ssanderson created (post #2) when the optimize API was first introduced explains what they're doing pretty well: https://www.quantopian.com/posts/optimize-api-generally-available
Can ziplin support encrypted currency exchanges?
Freddie Vargus
Hi @nxt-feng in order to do any sort of work with cryptocurrencies, you'd need your own pricing data (see http://www.zipline.io/bundles.html#ingesting-data-from-csv-files) and to create your own trading calendar (see http://www.zipline.io/trading-calendars.html); aside from that, we don't have any built-in support / focus on cryptocurrencies
Scott Sanderson

hi @/all. We've just released version 1.3.0 of Zipline. Highlights of this release include:

  • Support for pandas 0.22 and numpy 1.14.
  • A new separately-installable trading_calendars module.
  • Improved support for custom Blotters.
  • Support for custom CLI arguments.

This is likely last minor release in the Zipline 1.x series. The next Zipline release will include preliminary support for international markets, which we expect to require a small number of breaking changes. As such, the next release will most likely be Zipline 2.0.

You can find the full release notes for this release at http://www.zipline.io/releases.html#release-1-3-0.

Hii I am new to zipline, is there any pdf documentation available ?
Freddie Vargus
Hi @sidbazinga we don't have any docs in the form of PDFs (at least that I'm aware of?) but we have docs at http://zipline.io, and the raw .rst files here: https://github.com/quantopian/zipline/tree/master/docs/source
I have some data files which have more columns than the standard ingest format, is there a way out to ingest these ?
Freddie Vargus
@sidbazinga I'm thinking either you'd have to drop those columns or write your own bundle
@freddiev4 going ahead with writing my own bundle, thanks :)

hey guys.... new to zipline; investigating at this point. If I have a separate streaming data source, what would be the best way of integrating with zipline? e.g. I get tick data from an api, and want feed it to zipline and can our api function when (say) there's a 10-20 ema cross.
I ingested a data bundle successfully for daily data, now when i use it I m getting this error "KeyError: Timestamp('2013-04-28 00:00:00+0000', tz='UTC')", read somewhere its because the algo is looking for minute data instead of daily. i tried setting "context.data_frequency = 'daily'", but still the same error shows. Is there a way to fix this ?
Issue got resolved when i passed more parameters to the zipline command :)
Hello everyone, I am just getting started with Zipline and encounter a question. It seems that Zipline doesn't have before_trading_start function, so how I can do some calculations before the markets open? Does anyone have a suggestion?
Hi everyone, I am trying to ingest data from mongoDB, so how can I custom my bundles?
hello peoplo
does anyone know if there's a slack channel for zipline developers?
Mosfiqur Rahman
Hi everyone,
I have just started working with zipline and in need of some help to figure out how I should use it for custom algorithm and data.
Here' s a detailed post: https://www.quantopian.com/posts/zipline-running-custom-algorithm-with-custom-data-1

Hi everyone, what is the difference between order_percent and order_target_percent in terms of the end results? Say, no matter which function I use, and no matter what how may APPL stocks I have already have (order_target_percent will adjust the difference between the percentages), after running order_percent(APPLE, 0.30) or order_target_percent(APPLE, 0.30), I will always have my 30 percent of my current position invested in APPL, right? In this way, there is no difference between this two?
