Paper Trading Stocks without fees

Hello,

Is there a way to Paper trade free of cost on Quantconnect? Like normal paper trading or with a demo account from any broker?

Hi Ray,

Live trading is free for all students logging in with a .edu address. If you're not a student, check out our pricing page for costs associated with renting a live server for paper trading. Currently, our users can get set up for just $20/month with a Prime membership.

Best,
Derek Melchin

hi Derek,

I assume then the Paper trading free of cost based on other providers like FXCM or IB is no longer available?

Using QuantConnect to paper trade requires a prime subscription because paper trading requires using a live server.

Keep in mind, it is possible to live trade for free by installing and running Lean locally because this does not require using one of QuantConnect live servers.

Check out the documentation on Live Trading to learn more.

Hi Ray Trader ,

We don't have any documentation or guide that teaches Lean users how to deploy a live algorithm locally.
It's quite simple: we just need to edit the config.json file and set the desired environment and credentials.

FXMC:

"environment": "live-fxcm",

"fxcm-server": "http://www.fxcorporate.com/Hosts.jsp",
"fxcm-terminal": "Demo", //Real or Demo
"fxcm-user-name": "",
"fxcm-password": "",
"fxcm-account-id": "",

Interactive Brokers:

"environment": "live-interactive",

"ib-account": "",
"ib-user-name": "",
"ib-password": "",
"ib-host": "127.0.0.1",
"ib-port": "4002",
"ib-agent-description": "Individual",
"ib-tws-dir": "C:\\Jts",
"ib-trading-mode": "paper",
"ib-enable-delayed-streaming-data": false,

Please note that in the IBKR case, we need to install TWS with IB Gateway 974 locally.
