Are prices found in Securities[holding].Price updated by tick during live trading?

I'm looking at the possibility of scheduling a stoploss check throughout the day in live trading.  I really dont' want to increase my algorithm resolution beyond daily.  In live trading, could I just check Securities[holding].Price every hour even when my resolution is set to daily?  I'm thinking this might work in a live algorithm, but not in backtesting.  Has anyone tried this?

Update Backtest








You are correct Paul that price property will be updated intra-bar in live trading. We update the security holdings every tick to generate the real time plots in live mode. I've never tried your setup but its easy to test.
