Realtime / Live Forex Data?

Hi,

I'm new - so I apologise if this has been covered previously - i did search though!

I'm looking to see if this platform will provide me realtime access to forex data? or do I need to buy a broker stream?

Simplistically, I'd like to find a manner to use this platform in the first instance to send alerts/notifications at specific price points

Thanks
Paul

Hey Wei,

We have deprecated the QuantConnect University. The algorithms that featured in QC University can be found in the Lean repository (C#Py).I highly recommend completing the Buy & Hold Forex bootcamp. It will teach you how to access and use Forex data. Keep in mind, the data used in backtesting is historical data. In order to access live Forex data, we need to live deploy an algorithm. You can learn about live trading in the documentation.

Best
