I am new to QuantConnect. I am a Tradestation refuge. Can QuantConnect run one non trivial strategy (e.g. double bottoms) on 1 minute bars for large number of instruments (500 member of S&P). I have strategies that only trigger once a month and have to run them on large number of instruments.
Tradestation and Multicharts (which are easylanguage based) start to choke at around 50 instruments. I have tested Ninjatrader (C# based) but only
up to 20 instruments.
Its not the limits of the hardware that is the problem...code is not written to take advantage of hardware. I have run programs on 8 core with 16GigaByte RAM and with 64 Gigabyte RAM.
