Newbie

Thanks for great platform. It has been less than 24 hours and I am already a paying member.  Thanks for the great work. 

Is there any step by step instruction I can follow to make it easy to code locally but get it automatically to execute in website. 

Also if someone has a example of mean reversion statergy that they are okay to share it would be great starting point for me. 
 

Update Backtest








Welcome Hemant! Thanks for the feedback!

You can use the Getting Started tutorial for LEAN here, and this will get you coding locally; but there's currently no way to  have it automatically execute in the website. Some people copy and paste the code from their local IDE's into QuantConnect.com.

We're shipped a new version of the API now which will allow coding / backtesting / live trading via API. With this it is much easier to develop a plugin so we'll probably ship one soon :)

I wrote a simple mean-reversion strategy based on Bollinger Bands:
- If the current price is greater than the upper bollinger band, sell the stock
- If the current price is less than the lower bollinger band, buy the stock

It shows how to set up indicators in QuantConnect (please checkout the docs, Indicators section, for more information) and how to use custom charting (please also checkout the Charting section in the docs) to visualize your trades along with the indicator.

    Pairs trading is a statistical arbitrage technique that relies on the notion of mean reversion: two (or more) assets that are cointegrated will, for a moment, have their cointegration weakened. At that moment we put trades betting on the reinforcement of the cointegration (reversion to the mean). 

    I attached a simple pairs trading algorithm that also teach us how to use composite indicators.
