Files

Introduction

The files in your projects enable you to implement trading algorithms, perform research, and store important information. Python projects start with a main.py and a research.ipynb file. C# projects start with a Main.cs and a Research.ipynb file. Use the main.py or Main.cs file to implement trading algorithms and use the ipynb file to access the Research Environment.
