Quantopian Pulls the plug on Broker Integration

Hi QuantConnect community,

I have several algos live trading on Quantopian. Unfortunately, they just announced that they will no longer support broker integration. Dissapointing to say the least. However, a quick google search brought me here and I like what I see so far.. Does anyone have any experience moving code from Quantopian to QuantConnect? Just trying to get a sense of how easy/difficult it is to port your code here. 

I presume that a Prime subscription includes Equity data?

Hi Eric,

Welcome to the community. I have also joined QC a few months ago. Before coming here I played with quantopian a little. Some other users could have more experience with quantopian and help more, but translating codes is always painful and error-prone. So, you may have a little bumpy road ahead. From my very little knowledge about quantopian, I would say that these two platforms are conceptually different and if you are not in rush, it would be helpful to spend some time with the tutorials, clone a few examples, and get comfortable with the platform here.

In QC everything goes through Initialize first and then for every bar you will get a call back on OnData. Normally you set up your indicators, et.c . in Initialize and the signal recognition and orders go to the OnData method.

If you need to warp up your indicators, there are some examples too.

Good luck.
