I have a list of currency pairs, let's say for example it looks like this:
cp = ['EURUSD', 'CHFUSD', 'JPYUSD', 'CADUSD']
What I'm looking to do is iterate through this list, changing the USD to GBP to result in a new list that would display:
new_cp = ['EURGBP', 'CHFGBP', 'JPYGBP', 'CADGBP']
The way I assumed I would do it would be to loop through each pair, split the string into a list, remove the last 3 elements, and then append 'G', 'B', 'P' as the new last 3 elements, and finally returning this back in to a string, and adding it to the new list, 'new_cp'.
The code I began with was:
for pair in cp: split_pair = pair.split()
However, all this results in is getting:
So it's just splitting the list, not splitting the string for each currency pair within the list.
I know this is relatively beginner stuff, but I am really stumped. I just don't get why this doesn't work.
If you can help with what I am doing wrong there, or even suggest a more efficient way to achieve what I'm looking to do that would be really appreciated.
