Live Trading with Interactive Brokers

We’re very proud to announce our public release of live trading with Interactive Brokers! Now you can seamlessly design and trade your algorithm within QuantConnect.

Automated live trading is one of the most challenging engineering problems in financial technology. It involves controlling large financial resources, while pushing computational power to its limits!

Starting today, you can deploy your algorithms to your Interactive Brokers accounts, using minute, second or tick resolution data for Equities and FOREX. All powered by our open source algorithmic trading platform, LEAN.

Live Trading GUI

QuantConnect live trading comes packed with some impressive functionality to help your trading!

SMS and Email Notifications

Trigger sending emails, web hooks or SMS messages on key events with a single line of code. It is as simple as:
Notify.Sms(phone,message);
Notify.Email(email,subject,message);

Custom Live Data Sources

Using QuantConnect you can connect your algorithm to external data sources and stream updates to your algorithm events. Check out our demo using a Bitcoin REST API.

Runtime Statistics

With runtime statistics you can display custom information in the header of your live GUI to track your key indicators and asset values.

SetRuntimeStatistic("EURUSD", price);
