Note:  This method is NOT called on historical data (backtest)

 

 

Method Return Value

This method does not return a value.

 

Syntax
You must override the method in your strategy or indicator with the following syntax.

 

protected override void OnFundamentalData(FundamentalDataEventArgs fundamentalDataUpdate)
{
 
}

 

Tip:  The NinjaScript code wizards can automatically generate the method syntax for you when creating a new script.

fundamentalDataUpdate

FundamentalDataEventArgs representing the recent change in fundamental data

 

 

Examples

ns


protected override void OnFundamentalData(FundamentalDataEventArgs fundamentalDataUpdate)
{
    // Print some data to the Output window
    if (fundamentalDataUpdate.FundamentalDataType == FundamentalDataType.AverageDailyVolume)
        Print("The current ADV is " + fundamentalDataUpdate.LongValue);
}

 

 

Tips

1.With multi-time frame and instrument strategies, OnFundamentalData() will be called for all unique instruments in your strategy. Use the BarsInProgress to filter the OnFundamentalData() method for a specific instrument.
2.Do not leave an unused OnFundamentalData() method declared in your NinjaScript object. This will unnecessarily attach a data stream to your script which uses unnecessary CPU cycles.
