Your Ideal Algorithmic Trading Platform

Would you like a copy of the QuantConnect source code; so you can code, backtest and trade locally from your computer?

You could design and debug strategies from your laptop in Visual Studio, using a local data-source, and then when you’re ready simply deploy it to the cloud to backtest on our entire tick-level data library?

You could seamlessly utilize our cloud based optimization to backtest massively in parallel and test your strategy for parameter sensitivity, in minutes

With the platform open-sourced, you could trade locally from your own servers, or send the algorithm to QuantConnect to live trade from our beautiful HTML5 interface when you’re away from your desk…

And by working locally you can guarantee your proprietary data is safe, and maintain complete strategy privacy.

We think this would be a perfect algorithmic trading platform and we want to make it happen!

We’re launching a quant-crowd-funding campaign!

When we reach 100 hobbyist subscriptions we’ve committed to open sourcing the QuantConnect LEAN Algorithmic Trading Engine! We want 100 fans, believers, passionate quants who will form the core pioneers of the QuantConnect platform.

With your help we will lead the future of algorithmic trading.

Pioneers will be forever remembered on our supporters page, in addition to receiving a dedicated live trading server for running your strategies! (1 CPU / 512MB RAM / 20GB HD / 1TB Data Transfer).

We’re just scraping the surface of what is possible with QuantConnect! We’re excited to be adding powerful new features, and making the engine faster and more robust each day. For the first 100 Pioneers you’ll get a lifetime, $10/mo hobbyist subscription. Once you upgrade we’ll apply the discount but it is for a limit of the first 100 users!

In the next few months we plan to offer:

  • Cloud Optimizations
    Massively parallel cloud backtesting, optimize parameters to reduce algorithm sensitivity in minutes across our cloud. Run monte carlo simulations and view strategy sensitivity curves.
  • More Asset Types and Data Import Assistance
    We’re starting futures and options asset support, along with a tool to easily import external data to design robust profitable algorithms!
  • Better Browser Coding
    We’re working on an object tree inspector and true C# auto-complete, combined with project folders so you can easily build complex strategies!
  • Universe Selection and Fundamental Data
    Fundamental data powered by Morning Star so you can select a universe of companies by index, earnings and other key fundamentals!

Upgrade today and help us build the best algorithmic trading platform in the world. Sustainable, independent and community driven.


Instilling Values

Something apparent from our week in NYC is a need to build the values of an organization into its every action from day-0.  Integrity is so important in the modern world.

QuantConnect is seeking to shine light onto an unknown financial sector, automated algorithmic trading. We want to empower people to compete on a level playing field using the same powerful tools as billion dollar institutions. Its a very exciting possibility but also requires a very solid foundation.

As such we’re going to constantly pursue traits of integrity, transparency and collaboration in our design and implementation of QuantConnect. Recently we attended TEDxWallStreet and met incredible people from all aspects of finance. It was a truly inspiring event and we will absorb these lessons into the company going forward.

“You need to have integrity as a part of your bones,
otherwise you are unable to build trust” – Don Tapscott”
