Getting error while doing moving average

MPrashant edited March 2018 in Python client
access_token = "xxxxx"
client_id = "xxxxx"

# Instrument token of RELIANCE
instrument_token = "738561"

# Dates between which we need historical data
from_date = "2016-10-01"
to_date = "2016-10-17"

# Interval(minute, day, 3 minute, 5 minute...)
interval = "5minute"
kite = KiteConnect(api_key=api_key)

# Gets historical data from Kite Connect
def get_historical_data():
return kite.historical(instrument_token, from_date, to_date, interval)

Implementation of the moving average strategy.
We go through the historical records that
we received form Kite Connect, calculate moving average,
and place a BUY or SELL order.
def strategy(records):
total_closing_price = 0
record_count = 0
order_placed = False
last_order_placed = None
last_order_price = 0
profit = 0

for record in records:
record_count += 1
total_closing_price += record["close"]

#Moving avearge is calculated for every 5 ticks(records)
if record_count>= 5:
moving_average = total_closing_price/5

# If moving average is greater than last tick, place a buy order
if record["close"] > moving_average:
if last_order_placed == "SELL" or last_order_placed is None:

# If last order was sell, exit the stock first
if last_order_placed == "SELL":
print ("Exit SELL")

# Calculate profit
profit += last_order_price - record["close"]
last_order_price = record["close"]

# Fresh BUY order
print ("place new BUY order")
last_order_placed = "BUY"

# If moving average is lesser than last tick, and there is a position, place a sell order
elif record["close"] < moving_average:
if last_order_placed == "BUY":

# As last order was a buy, first let's exit the position
print ("Exit BUY")

# Calculate profit
profit += record["close"] - last_order_price
last_order_price = record["close"]

# Fresh SELL order
print ("place new SELL order")
last_order_placed = "SELL"

total_closing_price -= records[record_count-5]["close"]
print ("Gross Profit ", profit)
# PLace the last order

# Place an order based upon transaction type(BUY/SELL)
def place_order(transaction_type):
kite.order_place(tradingsymbol="RELIANCE", exchange="NSE", quantity=1, transaction_type=transaction_type, order_type="MARKET", product="CNC")

def start():
records = get_historical_data()

End of Code

Error what I am getting is below

if record_count&amp>= 5:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
