Get Current Datetime on Schedule Event on History Data

Hello, 

I need to know how to get the current datetime when u schedule a event every week on the history data. 

Something like this: 

 self.Schedule.On(self.DateRules.Every(DayOfWeek.Monday), self.TimeRules.At(2, 0), Action(self.WeeklyObserve))

And the Scheduled event: 


    def WeeklyObserve(self): 
        start_date = datetime.today() - timedelta(days=7)
        end_date = datetime.today() - timedelta(days=5) 

I wanna get the starting and ending date of last week. 

Do someone know how to achive this?

Hey Pierre,

Instead of datetime.today() which returns the system datetime. Use self.Time, which returns the historical datetime for the algorithm.
So,

start_time = self.Time - timedelta(days = 7)
end_time = self.Time - timedelta(days = 5)
