Range bars are the most important upgrade that could be made to the quantconnect platform.

 

 

 

regards to everyone,

 

 

range bars that allow for gaps are the most important upgrade that could be made to the qc platform at this time.

 

i share some screengrabs below for a performance report for a strategy of mine placing long and short positions of 100 amzn shares from 01-I-2013 to date. a number of strategies i have developed would also be profitable on other bar types, but only range bars will deliver this kind of results.

i don't think that implementing range bars that allow for gaps would be too big a challenge for the numerous professional programmers using qc. this kind of bars are very widely used and every serious trading platform makes sure to include them (there is an outstanding trading platform based on c# which features several advanced bar types and i think that their structures could be used as templates for the implementation in qc).

 

 

very well, thanks, regards.

I think it will be quite simple to implement.

Hi Marcos,

Currently, we don't have a Range Bar Indicator. We've added this to our to-do list and hope to implement the Indicator soon. You can track the progress of this by viewing the issue in GitHub here.
