Live Trading (client-side)

Is it possible to live trade a strategy on my own computer (client-side)? Is there a adapter, e.g to Interactive Brokers? I think I read about it here in the forum, but I can't find the post anymore. I like to test my strategy using the QuantConnect cloud, but run it by my own.
Update Backtest








It is possible with the current backtesting engine -- we do all our testing in a local environment first before deploying to cloud. But because its C# we need to open-source the code for it to be possible.

We are in favor of open-sourcing the engine but just need to be sure of our business model first. Once the company is able to thrive with an open-source model we'll release it for desktop use. We'll make this decision before Christmas.

The engine uses a plugin system so adding a new brokerage just requires 3-4 new plugins of 500-1000 lines each. We're launching the Tradier integration now :) http://qnt.co/9d558
