I'm interested in testing out a concept that would require the stocks beta value as part of a formula.    I looked but didn't see anything in the help but I assume the stock's beta is not something available or that we can access?

Beta is a calculation that requires you to have historical data for let's say 5 years for both the stock in question and an index against which you're calculating the beta.

As such, it is really not something that can be done on mass basis, like a column in a portfolio. If you're a programmer, you could connect to our Websocket API in MT, get the data that is required and calculate the beta yourself.
