End to End Quantitative Trading Infrastructure

The QuantConnect integration with Bitfinex provides a complete, end to end, quantitative trading infrastructure following the entire quant research journey.

Starting with Research, QuantConnect provides robust Jupyter Lab research notebooks to load Bitfinex historical data since 2013, curated and updated by our data engineering team. Through partnerships QuantConnect is able to offer the data for download to perform research on-premise.

High accuracy backtesting with full spread and fee modeling can then be performed on premise or in the QuantConnect cloud tapping our 5GHz backtesting machines. You can explore alternative crypto datasets to harness their alpha.

Our co-located, institutional quality, live-trading environment can securely host your strategy and connect with the Bitfinex API's through redundant 10GB dedicated internet connections, giving your unparalleled security and comfort in your live trading.

Your entire team consistently demonstrate an obvious commitment to helping people both understand how your product works and keeping them happy by tempering frustrations – and this is nothing short of World Class support.

I love QuantConnect for all of the features - can code my algorithms in C#, my favorite language, the bootcamp series got me up and running in no time, the online documentation makes it so easy to develop, the way QC consolidates ticks, trade and quote bars of different periods into a single event, OnData, simplifies things and my favorite: I can run Lean on my desktop and use all of the features of Visual Studio.

I really appreciate the team's work on QuantConnect, it's a stunning masterpiece. I was a option market maker. I'm using Lean as my core backtesting engine, I think it's super powerful to support both research, backtesting and live-trading, and I believe it would be stronger in future.

You cannot believe how QuantConnect and Lean project changed my life. I have no words to thank you and the team the impact in my life and my future. Your platform gave me access to a world that is hard to access for individuals like me. Thank you.

Multiple students have singled out their time on QC as the single most educational experience of their undergraduate career. Some even said "most fun"! All said it was difficult which should be taken as a compliment because "fun"/difficulty is the holy grail of student reviews.

The platform is very easy for team members to collaborate on the code development simultaneously. Very easy to implement new algorithms with Interactive Brokers.
