Alpha Stream Rejected: Sorry, this backtest does not use the algorithm framework.

I want to submit an algorithm to Alpha Streams but get the error message: 

"Sorry, this backtest does not use the algorithm framework."

My algorithm uses the python basic algorithm template, what do I need to do to solve this error?

Update Backtest

Please use the "Support" tab on the left side inside the Algorithm Lab and send it to the support with the error message.

Or write the staff:


Hi Kieran,

You should follow the alpha framework to develop your alpha algorithm. Please check this simple example with the default module to get started

You could create your own custom modules. Check examples here for creating custom module.

Update Backtest
