In the last few of months I have been experimenting with QuantConnect and creating some algorithms. Currently I have two algorithms that I think that could be interesting to publish in the alpha market. I was investigating what was neccesary to get the algorithms published. 

One of the requirements is emitting insights, I could implement this but than it also seems nessecary to specify the 'insight period'. I could statistically approximate this however if I knew this I was a millionaire so I will always be wrong. My strategy is in essence a pair trade that lasts between 5 minutes and 5 days. 


- Why is this a required field?

- What is the impact if I put complete nonsense in this field? 

- Will is my alpha still valuable if I cannot approximate insight period with some degree of accuracy?
