Question about External Decisions

How it is possible to use the platform with external decisions (e.g. signals generated via an external API or application)?

I have a method that utilizes Deep Learning and I would like to paper trade (and later live-trade) using QuantConnect.

Hi!

One way to do this is to simply download an external file at some regular interval (see the links for information on how to do both). You could then parse this file to extract the data you need.

Dont forget to point to the open source algo examples provided by QuantConnect :)

Thanks both. Douglas, that sounds good enough, then I can serve the external decisions via an API and execute them at QuantConnect after downloading those decisions from that API.
