Doing the Boot Camp and on the "Buy and Hold -> Accessing Quote Prices" fails every time...

In the Buy and Hold -> Accessing Quote Prices excercise even if I cut and past the solution the exericise fails. Any ideas?

 

class BootCampTask(QCAlgorithm):

    def Initialize(self):

        self.SetCash(100000)
        self.SetStartDate(2017, 5, 1)
        self.SetEndDate(2017, 5, 31)
        # add forex data
        self.AddForex("EURUSD", Resolution.Hour, Market.Oanda)
        # set brokerage model
        self.SetBrokerageModel(BrokerageName.OandaBrokerage)

    def OnData(self, data):
        if self.Time.day == 1 and self.Time.hour == 10:
            self.Debug(str(data["EURUSD"].Ask.Close))

 

I have tried repeatedly and always fails....

I think this is failing on submit with C# also:

namespace QuantConnect
{
public partial class BootCampTask : QCAlgorithm
{
public override void Initialize()
{
SetStartDate(2017, 5, 1);
SetEndDate(2017, 5, 31);
SetCash(100000);
AddForex("EURUSD", Resolution.Hour, Market.Oanda);
SetBrokerageModel(BrokerageName.OandaBrokerage);
}

public override void OnData(Slice data)
{
if (data.Time.Day == 1 && data.Time.Hour == 10)
{
Debug(data["EURUSD"].Ask.Close.ToString());
}
}
}
}

Hi Agasthya and Sean,

Sorry for the inconvenience. We had found an issue with Oanda data and we've fixed it for both C# and Python. Please check back if you are able to submit this bootcamp exercise. Thanks for your support!
