When do I exactly need to start subscription?

Back

Sorry, if this is already answered, but I am not able to find the details.

When I have a trading strategy in place and I want to start actual paper trading, can I do it free of cost either with Quantconnect paper trading? OR with an IB , Oanda or FXCM paper trading account?

I am more than happy to start my subscription with Quantconnect once I am ready to go live, but want to confirm my free options till the time I am doing paper trading.

Thank you,

Ray

Hi Ray! We make most of the research process free. If you are backtesting basic strategies you can do it all on the free tier. If you're doing ML or need heavy compute you can access this with higher subscriptions. See our pricing page for more.

You can also download LEAN and run it on your computer for free for live/paper trading but it won't have the beautiful interface we serve here.

Thank you Jared for the details. I love the interface, so I prefer this. 

How do you decide if it is heavy compute? Are there specific criteria? Currently no plan for ML as I just want to translate some strategies that I am using day to day to Automation and test it out.

Is there a way I can know if I am using heavy compute? Thanks

There are no criteria. Free backtests are routed to the free server tier, these are just relatively slow and limited to 8GB RAM. You may sometimes hit out of memory issues which cause your backtest to die. You should be able to see these memory issues happening from the server statistics while backtests are running.
