How can I use QuantConnect to run realtime and send notifications?

So let's say I have a couple algorithm that I feel comfortable with and would like to take the algorithm to run real time instead of historic data, then send some sort of notification to myself it meets some trigger. How should I be doing that?

Excellent question! We haven't written any of the code for this - but we're brainstorming of a "Notifications API". This will be built into the base QC Algorithm and work like this:

Notify.Email("jared@quantconnect.com", "Message");
Notify.Sms("+1212000000", "Message");
Notify.Web("http://www.mywebsite.com/endpoint", objectData);


It will cap the notifications per minute to avoid mistakes in algorithm implementation and only work in live trading mode. We're thinking of tapping the Twilio API under the surface and offering up to 500 messages a month as part of your subscription.

When do you think live trading mode will be ready?

We're realllly close :) For the first subscribers (pioneers) probably Monday to be safe, but then roll it out wider after a week or so of beta testing.

Hi @EdwardTse - we pushed this feature in the latest commit on github for the live trading modes :) It should be fun. We rate limited to 20 per hour at the moment which should cover 99% of cases.
