Quantopian Live Shut Down

Hi,

I am new to the community and I am about to be followed by thousands of people. You see Quantopin just announced with only 30 days warning that they are killing off their entire live trading feature.

https://www.quantopian.com/posts/phasing-out-brokerage-integrations

This means all of active live traders will be flocking anywhere and everywhere to migrate their trading systems. I am already noticing a problem trying to migrate to Quant Connect, as the ram usage seems to me a major factor with using any non trivially sized universe. On quantopian my live algos universe started with 1500 or 3000 every morning before filtering down.

Does anyone have any suggestions or relevant experiences for people like me whoa are trying to migrate over from Quantopian with minute level, large universe algos who does not want to see my costs go from $0.0 on quantopian to well over $100 per month on Quant Connect once I am done adding on ram? This is at least good news for QC and other competing services as they are about to get a great many desperate, paying customers...

I just sent my letter to RH support but they are notoriously slow so we will see if they can get their act together before sept.


I got 27k on RH that I would really rather not move to IB. My algo trades frequently and this would be a huge loss of profiablility. Jared, you should consider using RH's unofficial API as a workaround until RH gets it's act together, it's not like they restrict it, it's out in the open for anyone to use.

Hi Jared Broad (and, I'm staritng to gather, Alexandre Catarino :)),

Still having trouble with the backtest timing out per the message above. I had shared the algorithm with you, but also posted it here:

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi all,

Another migrant from Quantopian here. I see some familar names here as I saw them in Quantopian forum. I haven't tried to recreate my algos based on QC API yet but I will do so soon. Can anyone (we) start a forum where all of migrants from Quantopian post tutorials, trials, errors, examples of algorithms like we all did in Quantopian? So that we can speed up our migration to QC smoothly. I guess this one is a kind of doing it but we need more help, right? 

Anyway, it's so painful for all of us and we need to move forward, I guess here in QC. 

BTW, I heard that QC is not supporting live trading for institutions yet, is it right? 

Thanks.

Hi June, I'm a quantopian migrant as well. You will find much information about converting code in this thread. -Further, per Jared in another thread somewhere, advised that they do in fact support live trading for institutions. 1) There is no limitation to the account value that your algorithm can handle, and 2) They mentioned that if you do need to set up institutional trading to contact them because they might be able do something special for you. - I recall something along the lines of cutting the cost if you have 50 or more private servers?

Hi Jared And Everyone

Another active live individual trader trying to figure out what to do after Quantopian stopping support effective 29th Sept. 

I have a strategy currently running in Quantopian environment for live trading through Interactive Broker. Can I collaraborate with anyone on this community who can help me getting the same algo work in QuantConnect using Phyton. I am having hard time to figure out the libraries used in Quantconnect which corresponds to libraries in Quantopian. 

I can share the algo and collaborate with someone willing to help me.

@Sujoy, Here at QC, there are many Quantopian migrants including me. I believe that QC people and we can help you (and all the Quantopian migrants) rebuild your (our) algos here using Python as we've been helped. First, pleae find this:

https://www.quantconnect.com/forum/discussion/2317/migrating-from-quantopian-to-quantconnect

This forum is a great start and also find other forums where many Q&As were posted. And then, if you have more questions, post them, we all can help you (us). Hope this help.  :)

Hello all, new here, and on the front end of the learning curve... Finally have some time on my hands to devote to grasping algo trading, and visited Quantopian only to realize they were no longer supporting live trades... Actually, QuantConnect was the first company I discovered about a year ago but at the time they didn't support Python, which is the language I'm most familiar with.  Currently, I trade (manually) with RH, and contacted them regarding the timing release of their API. Vague response from them (below), but they did send a survey link to request beta access to their API. As I mentioned, I'm new, so I'll be in the tutorial section for the time being. By the time I have some chops, maybe an API will be rolling out.  Good to be here!

Robinhood Response...

Thanks so much for reaching out!

We don't have a publicly available API right now, but you're welcome to fill out this survey to request to work with us as a beta partner.

We'll reach out to you directly if we'd like to work with you, and recommend you follow us on social media for any potential future announcements of a widely available API.

Let us know if you have any further questions!

Sincerely,
The Robinhood Team

Well, I guess Derek Tishler was right. After just a couple of month there are now 41,354 Quants on Quantconnect. I wish all the best to both Quantconnect and Quantopian as they have different and interesting goals and they can happily coexist.  It's a pity not being able to share the technology between the two platforms though, but diversification is an asset, isn't it?  ;) As a retail trader is really good to have a platform like Quantconnect designed around retail trading and being open source  too, thanks for all the effort Quantoconnect. Especially thanks for: 

https://www.quantconnect.com/forum/discussion/2400/avoiding-vendor-lock-in-running-lean-on-your-server


It's time saving and a quality assurance thing the fact that we can subscribe to your platform instead of being affected by all the problems of running live trading by ourselves but it's good to know that we are not locked-in in case something goes wrong.

 

thanks again
