History for a specific time range in Lab


I am trying to get intraday data of a specific ticker 10 years ago in Lab. For example minute level data of AAPL price from 2008/1/1 to 2008/1/10.

Do you know if I can specify time range in the History method to achieve this?

bars = self.History("SPY", TimeSpan.FromDays(7), Resolution.Minute)

Yes! It is possible to retrive history data between two specific dates. The call is going to be self.History(symbol, datetime, datetime, resolution) and that will return a Pandas.DataFrame of historical data. This historical data provides open, high, low, close and volume data. The backtest below shows the AAPL example and the link below provides further documentation on requesting historical data.
