[Sticky] Kipling 5.1.3
If you wish to work with the latest Kipling workbook, check this blog post.
I have downoaded the last version of Kipling, but cannot seem to put it to work. I am running it under Windows 10, on a Bootcamp drive in my Macbook.
Both the ITA add-in and the Kipling spreadsheet are installed in the correct directoy, according to the setup instructions. After "fixing the links" and trying to download either from yahoo or Tiingo, I get absurd prices (like 10+ figures), or no prices for a number of assets. I have re-downloaded, re-installed, but still nothing. I have also looked in the forum if there's anybody with the same problem, but haven't found any info.
Probably I am doing something wrong, but cannot know what is it.
Can anybody help?
Hmm. I hope Bootcamp is not fouling up the macros that are built into the Kipling.
Were you able to successfully operate an older version of the Kipling using the same combination of software?
I had the previous versions of the ITA.xlam and Kipling files and tried running them, with the same result. I downloaded the Tiingo adjusted daily data for the last 36 months and pasted it in the "Adj. Close", using the"Ultimate Excel Stock Quote Downloader" from www.ultimatestockdownloader.com which I use for my backtesting files.
With this data, the Kipling seems to "do something", but I am not sure if this is normal. For example:
If I select on the Tranche sheet:
- NO index filter;
- NO target filter;
-Number of assets <>1
- Model/System: anyone.
The recommendation will be to buy SHY, although The ranking will be VTI, VEA, VWO, DBC, RWX (both VEA and RWO rank "2").
Setting Target Filter to NO, the recommendation will be VTI (only VTI, regardless of the number of assets selected). In this case, moving to Position Size (Auto) shows 0 on VTI, and a position on SHY...
I am now on the road without access to any Windows computer, once I get back home I will install the sheets in a PC and let you know.
I can send you some screenshots also to the email address of your choice.
Thanks for your help.
