Thinkorswim user, new to Quantconnect

Is this for options traders, or only for stock traders?

I would like to trade SPY by buying the underlying and a protective put to protect against losses.

How could I set that back-test up using QuantConnect?

Hi Michael,

I just posted to the project on github. Looks like a great place to get started.

I'm looking to find a paper money account that I can test quantconnect with prior to funding it. Can you suggest anything?

We offer a paper trading platform with a subscription. Alternatively, you could also paper trade with Interactive Brokers, but (I believe) it will require a funded account. Soon we'll be launching FXCM and Oanda, both of which also offer paper trading.
