History called on Forex or CFD security will return an empty result.

Hi!

When I call the method History is called on Forex or CFD security, I receive the run time error:

"Calling this method on a Forex or CFD security will return an empty result. Please use the generic version with QuoteBar type parameter."

Could you please help me understand what I should use instead?

Update Backtest








In Lean/QuantConnect, all security types but equity are quote bars, therefore History Request should be made using the generic version with QuoteBar type parameter:

var eurHistory = History<QuoteBar>("EURUSD", 10);
