Live Datafeed in Prime Account

Hello Jared/Mods,

Thanks first of off all for your efforts in making cloud based opesource trading platform. 

Which broker feed I will be getting once I have prime account? Should i have a live account for any broker? Primarly I am not interested in trading right now, but interested in building robust strategies and evaluating them through paper trading practices. I am also looking for a solution that generates notifications initially where i can use them in other platforms for practice purposes. With your open source code and prime account, is it possible for me to deploy custom projects with in my workspace? or should i have to go for my own cloud deployment? I am thinking of adding comericial apis to my algorithms.

QuantConnect provides its own live datafeed so you don't need to open an account in any broker. However, all of the three brokerages we support provide live datafeed for paper trading.
In live trading mode we allow sending Email, SMS and Web-Hook notifications to notify you of significant events. You can send up to 20 notifications per hour:

//Send yourself an email on live trade executions
Notify.Email("myEmailAddress@gmail.com", "Live Trade Executed", "Bought 100 Shares of AAPL");


It is possible to deploy your projects in your own cloud enviroment. Since you will not get QuantConnect's datafeed in that setup, you don't need a prime subscription and will need to get the data from another source. Aside the supported brokerages, we can find a plug-in for IQFeed in the open source project.

Hello Alexandre,

Thanks for your reply. However my primary concerns are not opening an account with broker. Its live data and evaluation of my strategies on live data. My intention is forward test on survived back tested stragies. Mostly I am planning to implement market adaptive strategies. For this, I will be using other APIs. So the concern is does your cloud platform support me to add new apis which my Algorithms are referring. Mostly they will be Dotnet or C# wrapper of other platform APIs. I saw that i can use Visual studio plugin to deploy my algorithm from Visual studio to cloud with prime account. This is attracting me to go for prime and ofcouese live-data possibility too. If the referenced API algorithms deployment to cloud are a concern, then i have to go for seperate cloud deployment. Then i again, I guess it will force me to have seperate live-data of my own. Please enlighten if i am wrong in understanding your services.

Hi Dream Come True,

The most plausible alternative is build your framework and deploy it in a VM using IaaS*.

Set up Lean for live account is very easy. Simply add your broker account info into the config.json file, choose the environment for your broker and that’s all… really!

The engine is ridiculously robust, I had a VM running a Lean instance in live mode for MONTHS without a problem. I only stopped the instance when I needed to update the engine.

Good luck!

* I didn’t try using PaaS but I think it should work too.

Hello JayJayD,

My understanding that quantconnect is desktop application. Is there any possible way to trade from browser by deploying it in cloud?

QuantConnect is not a desktop application... check out this tutorial video. 

LEAN the open source project of QuantConnect is able to be downloaded and run on your desktop

If you can develop your framework in a way that you can interact with your live algorithm from a web based app, then yes.

If you’re able to code it, Lean can run it.
