Possible to use delayed data live trading?

I have a trading algorithm that trades futures that I want to test live using my Interactive Brokers paper account. When launching it I get an error that only delayed data is available. Is it possible to trade on delayed data? At this point I'd rather not pay for futures data from Interactive Brokers until I'm sure my algorithm is viable. Unfortunately QuantConnect doesn't offer futures data in the subscription. Thanks!

Hi Randy Martinez
It is possible to trade with delayed data because IB allows to trade blind (with no data at all), However, IB will fill the orders according to real-time market conditions.
