Forex Candlestick Resolution

For Forex, I have the resolution set to hourly yet on my charts the candlesticks are only shown once per day - is this expected behavior?

Update Backtest








In backtesting mode, the charts created automatically by the algorithm have daily resolution.
If we want charts that reflect the data resolution, we need to create our custom charts. Please checkout the docs, Charting section:

// In your initialize method:

// Chart - Master Container for the Chart:
var stockPlot = new Chart("Trade Plot");
// On the Trade Plotter Chart we want 3 series: trades and price:
var buyOrders = new Series("Buy", SeriesType.Scatter, 0);
var sellOrders = new Series("Sell", SeriesType.Scatter, 0);
var assetPrice = new Series("Price", SeriesType.Line, 0);
stockPlot.AddSeries(buyOrders);
stockPlot.AddSeries(sellOrders);
stockPlot.AddSeries(assetPrice);
AddChart(stockPlot);

// Later in your OnData(Slice data):
Plot("Trade Plot", "Price", data.Bars["EURUSD"].Close);
