Run Algo on local csv data files

Hi,

Help needed for runing simple macd algo on local csv daily candles data.

Folowing the tuto I've put my zip containing one csv file as folows:

.../Data/future/usa/daily/sb.zip (with sb.csv file inside the zip)

And inside my algo  template initialization I'm calling 

var future = AddFuture(Futures.Softs.Sugar11);

 

and of course overriding OnData(Slice data) method.

But still 0 data points processed after running backtest.

Anyone managed to use local csv data?

Thanks

Update Backtest







Hi Dimitar; I'm not sure futures daily data works. We only support up to minute resolution in the QuantConnect system so there's been no testing at that level. I can't make any recommendations if it'll work or not..

Hi Jared, thank you.

Actually i'm trying to backtest some strategies on back/forward- adjusted (panama) daily series so it's just like any other kind of daily candle data. 

May be I will try to use it as any other kind of "equities" data. 

Will give feedback on...
