Downloading stock prices in F# – Part VI – Code posted

Other parts:

An unnamed friend told me that I should stop posting small snippets of code and instead post entire solutions on CodeGallery. I did it for this one and here is the link.

Here is what’s in the zip file:

  • BackTestF – main library to download stock prices

    • Common.fs – common things used in the rest of the project (i.e. data modeling and common funcs)

    • html.fs – functions to scrap html tables, rows and cells

    • loader.fs – this is where the main async downloading algorithms are implemented

    • persistence.fs – async saving and loading of stock prices to files

    • algorithms.fs – async calculations of compound yearly returns given tickers and dates

    • dotNetWrapper.fs – gives a .NET friendly interface to the whole library so that you can use it from C#/VB.NET

  • Tests – too few testcases running on xUnit (you need to download xUnit separately to run them

  • ReturnCalculator – simple console application to show usage of the library

  • Bob – rough winforms UI application that uses the library. An unnamed friend (Jonathan) promised me that he was going to create a UI for my little library. My requirements were very simple: “I want the best UI app of this century, one that fully takes advantage of the async nature of my code”. Bob doesn’t fully satisfy my requirements yet 🙂

The code in persistence.fs, algorithms.fs and especially dotnetwrapper.fs is pretty rough and uninteresting. This is why I don’t blog about it. I reserve the right to do it if I get around to clean it up.

    Could not locate the assembly "FSharp.PowerPack, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a19089b1c74d0809". Check to make sure the assembly exists on disk. If this reference is required by your code, you may get compilation errors.

    Just delete the reference to the assembly from the project and add it again.
