Trading and back testing international stocks on QuantConnect

Hi,

I couldn't find anything regarding trading internationally and this question:

https://www.quantconnect.com/forum/discussion/1186/trading-international-stocks/p1

Was never answered.

I have a similar quesiton, with IB, how can I create international stock orders in Quantconnect?  The market class seems only have "usa" and then mostly fx.

On a similar topic, how do we even create international symbols in the backtester to test international stocks?

Thanks,

Herman

Thanks for pointing that our Herman, I've answered the original post. For completeness:

Yes its possible and many users from around the world have done international trading using the LEAN open source platform. Currently we don't support it on the QuantConnect.com website but we want to one day. We don't have any international data in QuantConnect.com - so its currently impossible to backtest their symbols with us.

To get started you'd need to create your own market; put your own backtesting data into the appropriate folder, and then update the symbol properties and market hours database. Its no small feat to do but it is possible!

You can see other users who've done it on the Google groups

Thanks for the prompt reply Jared.  I wasn't even aware of the google groups, let me dig into them and see how to do so.
