Crypto Listings Not Available?

At this link 

https://www.quantconnect.com/data/tree/crypto/gdax/minute

 it shows ATOM, ALGO, and LINK as available pairs on GDAX with USD but if I try what I have below I get the following error.

linkusd = self.AddCrypto("LINKUSD", Resolution.Minute).Symbol
kncusd = self.AddCrypto("KNCUSD", Resolution.Minute).Symbol

 

During the algorithm initialization, the following exception has occurred: ArgumentException : Symbol can't be found in the Symbol Properties Database: LINKUSD

ArgumentException : Symbol can't be found in the Symbol Properties Database: KNCUSD

 

Are some listed as available and not or am I accessing them incorrectly?

Hi David,

I'm confused though. In the documentation it doesn't list REPUSD or XLMUSD but I'm allowed to pull information and trade it through the backtest. I would have thought all the pairs listed here would be acceptable

Hi David,

We are currently in the process of updating our documentation. It seems we have the data for REPUSD and XLMUSD at both exchanges, Bitfinex and GDAX. See the attached backtest plots for reference.

I've shared this with our documentation team to be resolved in the new updates.

As a note for future development, if we don't pass an argument for the market when calling AddCrypto, the default value is null and looked up using BrokerageModel.DefaultMarkets. View our documentation remarks for reference.

Best,
Derek Melchin
