Trading Algo example in Python

Hi everyone,

I am currenty using Quantopian in live trading but I am thinking about moving to QuantConnect.
What would be the steps to convert my Quantopian algo for QuantConnect ?

What are the differences between Zipline and LEAN ?

Have you any example of algo coded in python ?

Thanks in advance.

Chris

Welcome Chris! There are many differences but the fundamental quant concepts are the same. You can select assets individually or on a basis of a universe. You elect what resolution and asset type you'd like and you'll get the data into event handlers. The only way to get started is to read the documentation and look at the QC University algorithms in the IDE.

There are 30-ish examples of python algorithms in Github. There is 1 key limit to the python support -- it doesn't allow other math libraries. In time we'll figure out a way to offer this support.
