How do you buy contracts then sell those same ones?

Hello, new person here. I'm unable to find in the documentation or on github/quantconnect  examples of selling contracts that you've previously bought. Everything there seems to be either buying the contracts then exercising them.

Sorry for not being super clear. The strategy I'm trying to test involves buying, then selling, naked calls and puts.

You will need to save the symbol object for the contract you purchase. When you filter and select the contracts for trading you'll need a symbol to purchase one; after you've placed the order save off the order ticket / symbol reference and you can later sell it.
