Quantopian to Quantconnect -- Get current and history of Price

I am trying to transalte some Quantopian code, and am not sure of the proper C# methods to use.

Quantopian code:

 Assume that "context.XIV" is pointing to the XIV position.

 high = (data.history(context.XIV, "high", 119, "1m")).max()

 price = data.current(context.XIV, 'price')

Requesting historical data is easily implementable in QuantConnect. The History() method call is extremely flexible, and returns as an enumerable. As a result, the highest high price can be found via historyarray.max().

The price of a security can be called via Securities[Symbol].Price
