Imported CustomData in QuantConnect not matched with source data

I'm importing custom data but in QC not matching with the source data, I have set data normalization to Raw still not getting accurate data, am I missing something?
security = AddData<CustomData>(symbol, Resolution.Minute,false);

//I tried both ways

objSecurity.Subscriptions.SetDataNormalizationMode(DataNormalizationMode.Raw);

Securities[symbol].SetDataNormalizationMode(DataNormalizationMode.Raw);

Jared Broad I am just printing  Custom data to console 
BacktestingData.cs

using System;

{
SetStartDate(2019, 7, 25);
SetEndDate(2019, 7, 26);
//SetTimeZone("Asia/Kolkata");

security = AddData<CustomData>(symbol, Resolution.Minute,false);
security.Subscriptions.SetDataNormalizationMode(DataNormalizationMode.Raw);

_macd = MACD(security.Symbol, 12, 26, 9, MovingAverageType.Exponential, Resolution.Minute);
}

public override void OnData(Slice slice)

Debug($"{Time} | {symbol}: O:{Securities[symbol].Open} H:{Securities[symbol].High} L:{Securities[symbol].Low} C: {Securities[symbol].Close}");

Hi Meghdoot,

Thank you for posting this issue. Actually, the imported Custom Data does match with the source data in your example. The problem lies in the fact that we should use slice[symbol] rather than Securities[symbol], since Securities[symbol] will only keep Close data while slice[symbol] keeps Open, High, Low, and Close. Please see the Log in the adjusted backtest, and you will find the imported data is exactly the same as source data.

Thank you for your example again, since it verifies that the method to import Custom Data in QC is totally correct! We look forward to your reply, thanks!
