Run time error

Hi,

I'm having a problem in backtesting mode.

It shows : Runtime Error: 'AAPL' wasn't found in the TradeBars object, likely because there was no-data at this moment in time and it wasn't possible to fillforward historical data. Please check the data exists before accessing it with data.ContainsKey("AAPL")

How ever I think I've difine the security already. 
Thanks.

James

Update Backtest








In the Initialize method, you subscribe all the symbols you want to trade, but the data will flow in and appear on the OnData event handler only if there is new data. If, by any reason, a security wasn't trading at a given timespan it won't be part of the Tradebars object along with the other subscribed symbols.
This is common on iliquid assets with higher (second) resolution. Simply, there are no new trades on a whole second/minute and therefore it is impossible to contitute a new tradebar. Think of it as a missing candle in a candle chart.

Hi Alexandre,

I'm wondering if one of stock basket shows this problem. How can I fix it or skip that particular timespan?

Do you mean, if you have 100 stocks and only one if missing, the OnData event handle returns (the algorithm does nothing)?
In the case of your algorithm, compare the number of symbols you subscribed (Securities.Count) against the number of symbols arrived at OnData:

public void OnData(TradeBars data)
{
if(data.Count < Securities.Count) return;
}

If the algorithm never passes this point, one of the symbols may have been delisted or it is not avaliable (please check our database).
