Could someone help me? I want to use selector in self.EMA(symbol, period, resolution, selector).

I am using BasicTemplateCryptoAlgorithm.py and I dont know how to use selector. I have tried data.Close Data.Close self.data.Close self.Data.Close only close. In Api I dont find exact information or I dont understand it.There is written:

DataType 
QuantConnect.MarketDataTypeMarket Data Type of this data - does it come in individual price packets or is it grouped into OHLC.

 

Thanks
