Plot candlestick pattern with Quantbook historical data

I am following the sample research environment example as given at

https://github.com/QuantConnect/Lean/blob/master/Jupyter/BasicQuantBookTemplate.ipynb

spy = qb.AddEquity("SPY")

h1 = qb.History(qb.Securities.Keys, 360, Resolution.Daily)

h1.loc["SPY"]["close"].plot()

I wanted to plot candle stick pattern instead of the linechart.

It is possible to create candlestick patterns using the library matplotlib.finance. The process of acquiring the historical data will remain the same so that can the dataframe it provides. In the attached project the method call matplotlib.finance.candlestick­2_ohlc() produces the candlesticks. The matplotlib.finance documentation online goes into deeper detail on how to set up the candlestick structure.
