CandleStick Type mismatch found between consolidator and indicator for symbol: Consolidator outputs type but indicator expects input type TradeBar

Hi,

I'm trying to use candlesticks against a custom datasource. I am receiving an error message saying there is a mismatch between consolidator and indicator. What does that mean? What am I doing wrong?

When adding custom data, do I need to add it as an equity, or a security?

I realise this algorithm doesn't make any sense whatsoever - I was just trying to get some sort of output.

Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Your Yahoo type derives from BaseData while CandlestickPattern indicators expect TradeBar type. In order to make them work with your Yahoo type, it needs to derive from TradeBar:

public class Yahoo : TradeBar

Thanks Alexandre! I didn't make the connection that TradeBar was a type of BaseData.

I just tried this out, I cloned the project, and hit 'backtest' but it doesn't do anything. It just sits as 'queueing'. Any idea what it's doing?
