Algorithm Example

class USEnergyDataAlgorithm(QCAlgorithm):

    def Initialize(self) -> None:
        self.SetStartDate(2020, 1, 1)
        self.SetEndDate(2021, 6, 1)
        # Requesting data
        self.symbol = self.AddEquity("AXAS", Resolution.Daily).Symbol
        us_energy_symbol = self.AddData(USEnergy, USEnergy.Petroleum.UnitedStates.WeeklyNetImportsOfTotalPetroleumProducts).Symbol

        # Historical data
        history = self.History(USEnergy, us_energy_symbol, 60, Resolution.Daily)
        self.Log(f"We got {len(history)} items from our history request")

        # Get latest value for net imports of petroleum products
        self.previous_value = history.loc[us_energy_symbol].values[-1, -1]
    def OnData(self, slice: Slice) -> None:
        # Gather the current net imports of petroleum products
        points = slice.Get(USEnergy)
        current_value = None
        for point in points.Values:
            current_value = point.Value
        if current_value is None:
        # Buy when net imports of petroleum products are increasing
        if current_value > self.previous_value:
            self.SetHoldings(self.symbol, 1)
        # Short sell when net imports of petroleum products are decreasing
        elif current_value < self.previous_value:
            self.SetHoldings(self.symbol, -1)
        self.previous_value = current_value
