I am workinig on a code that does some initial stock filtering wthin the Initialize function by triggering an standalone class. I am unable to find a way to:

1. Run debug messages from the code. ( I was able to retrieve variables from the class so I know it was created, but the constructor debug message was never triggered)

2. Get histroical prices within the partial class function. Is this not possible within QC or am I doing it in the wrong way?

Very thankful if anyone has some inputs.

namespace QuantConnect { public partial class PairSelection : QCAlgorithm, IAlgorithm { private string[] tickerSymbols; public PairSelection(string[] tickers){ this.tickerSymbols = tickers; Debug("Triggered the PairSelection constructor"); } public List<Stocks> selectPairs() { Debug("Triggered the selectPairs function"); for(int m = 0; m<tickerSymbols.GetLength(); m++){ AddEquity(tickerSymbols[m], Resolution.Daily); var histEq = History(tickerSymbols[m], TimeSpan.FromDays(252), Resolution.Daily); // Do some other things } } } }
