Hello there! Having trouble with getting data from this code:
from rf import return_portfolios, optimal_portfolio

Didn’t manage to google any library ‘RF’ connected with quandl data source noticed in the lesson.
What kind of library RF is?
And how can I refer to it outside Codcademy notebook (like in Google Colaboratory or else)?


Have you managed to find any info about from rf import return_portfolios, optimal_portfolio?
All the best.

Hey there! Not really. I can only see here on GitHub someone refers to the same code python3_cookbook_recipes/efficient_frontier.py at master · bgroveben/python3_cookbook_recipes · GitHub

So maybe you can text this guy directly and ask him about this library.

Good luck on that one!
