Option Trading with IB

I just found out about QuantConnect and created an account so I know nothing :-). I am looking for a platform that can trade options based upon tech chart analysis. Reading a few entries here it seems trading options with interactive brokers is not something quantconnect is doing right now. Is there away to get a notification email when it is working and some algorithm examples are available?

thank you

even though there is no option data / support for backtesting options, is there a way to still trade options on the live execution side, using indicators from the underlying?

Understood Reuben, we could potentially live trading without historical data as long as we had some way of modelling option behavior. We don't currently have any option modelling so we have no idea of their impact on portfolio equity for example. Options are on our todo list but we'll need an options expert to help us write the first models since we've worked mostly in equity & fx :)

Options trading might be simple, but at the same time get complicated too. Online brokers offer customers support, tons of statistics, charts and underlying-security tracking ways that might be helpful in placing put and call options. Investors can choose among thousands of platform present on the web. Every investor should look for a good trading platform to succeed.
