Log Current Price Relative To Exponential Moving Average

How can I log the current price when it's above or bellow the Exponential moving average? I have been trying variations of the code below, but I get an error on the Log method: TypeError : Cannot get managed object at OnData in main.py. 

Thanks!

self.slow = self.EMA("EURUSD", 100, Resolution.Hour)

def OnData(self, data):
price = data["EURUSD"].price

if price > self.slow:
self.Log("The Price {0} is ABOVE".format(self.Securities["EURUSD"].Price))

Hi Leandro,

Below is an attached backtest using the code provided. The error was in line 6, where price was compared to self.slow. In order to access the current value of the EMA object, we need to use .Current.Value.
