Start Your Algorithm
public class MyFirstAlgorithm : QCAlgorithm 
    public override void Initialize() 
        SetStartDate(2011, 01, 01);
        SetEndDate(2012, 12, 31);
    //Data event - Every minute, second or tick
    public void OnData(TradeBars data)
	    //Your strategy here!

Event Driven Strategies

Designing an algorithm couldn't be easier. With only 2 required functions we take care of everything else! You just Initialize() and then handle the data-events you requested. You can create new indicators, classes, folders and files.

We are committed to giving you the best possible algorithm design experience.

Built for Speed

Just as highways revolutionized travel, we are providing infrastructure to enable rapid strategy design and testing at speeds you've never seen before.

5-10 year second or tick data strategies, across gigabytes of data complete in 30-60 seconds.

You don't need to wait for your backtest to complete! Keep coding and it will notify you when completed.
