Problems plotting 60 minute candles

I want to plot 60 minutes candles for SPY using the following code:

### <summary>
### Simple multi-fimeframe forex scalping based on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhEukjCzXwM
### </summary>>
class Plotting(QCAlgorithm):

    def Initialize(self):
        '''Initialise the data and resolution required, as well as the cash and start-end dates for your algorithm. All algorithms must initialized.'''
        self.SetStartDate(2015, 12, 1)    #Set Start Date
        self.SetEndDate(2015, 12, 5)      #Set End Date
        self.SetCash(5000)             #Set Strategy Cash
        self.forexPair = "EURUSD"
        self.AddEquity('SPY', Resolution.Hour)
        
      
        chart = Chart("Candles")
        price = Series("SPY", SeriesType.Candle)
        chart.AddSeries(price)
        self.AddChart(chart)
  
        
        
    def OnData(self,data):
        self.Plot("Candles","SPY", self.Securities['SPY'].Close)

But instead of one candle each 60 minutes, I get one candle per day:

What am I doing wrong?

Hey Filib,

There is currently no good way to plot candle bars. However, this is an issue we are working on.
