Closing price of the previous day

Hi, I'm new here, so I have a pretty trivial question. How do I find out the closing price of the previous day when I'm working in code with minute data? At the same time, how do I find out the current price on the market?

I simply want to compare the "current market price" with the closing price of the previous day every trading day. How do I achieve this? Thank you.

I can program in MQL4. There I would solve this problem simply:

double actual_price = iClose (Symbol (), 0,0);
double previous_day_close = iClose (Symbol (), PERIOD_D1,1);

How do I do the same, here? Thanks.

Hi Tomas,
to get the closing price of the previous day, one method is to use a Daily bar consolidator.

The current price is available from the OnData Slice parameter for the current universe that the algo is subscribed to, such as either equity, options, futures, etc.

I'd suggest reviewing the documention, examples and bootcamp tutorials to get up to speed.

Best,
E.
