We can use the same algorithms/strategies in backtesting and live mode. In order to deploy it in live mode, please click on the "Go Live" button next to the Backtest button. It will take us to a wizard where we can choose the brokerage. If we choose IB, authentication information will be asked. A small fee is charged to cover the costs of live trading.

It is completely free when we use the open source project. To do so, we need to install IB TWS, modify the config.json file ("environment": "live-interactive" and all the keys below "interactive brokers configuration")

When using QuantConnect we provide you live streaming data and a charting interface.

Thanks Alexandre for your response!

Yes, we can backtest with Lean once you have the data.
Please checkout the thread [Feature] Free Download of FXCM and Oanda Data where we announce that users can download data for free (only pays for bandwith costs).

We can copy our strategy developed locally with Lean into the Algorithm Lab (web terminal) and it will run without any additional changes. Also, you can use a paper trading account for free.

"Go Live" -> IB broker -> Paper -> Data QuantConnect - free -> pay it.

Let me make a clarification: paper trading not free.
The exception is OANDA brokerage who sponsors free/live paper trading for algorithms deployed to their brokerage.

Your code doesn't need to be "converted" between backtesting and live mode. It can be the same code.
If you are not a subscriber, you cannot deploy (in other words, run in live mode) your algorithm, since a small fee (a subscription) is charged to cover the costs of live trading.
