Options trading


I’m new to QuantConnect.  My interest is to do back testing and trade development using this platform.  Appreciate if anyone can help short cut my learning curve by sharing links on tutorials, blogs or whatever to learn the platform focusing on options.  When i tried to serach, i only found a few.  My preferred language is python.  I’d also like to be able connect to my IB or TD Ameritrade broker accounts.

Thank you.

Update Backtest

Hi, you can best give it a try with the documentation and try some sample algorithm and than have others give feedback on your algo if you find any issues. On the github there are a lot of algos to pick from, Also in the Algorithm lab you can try some. A lot of people are doing Bitcoins etc now, you might jump in by searching on it in the forum.
