Can commission for Crypto be handled in QC Algorithm Framework? Right now it shows zero fees charged for my strategies.

Here is the backtest I used.

Here is where I was directed: Reality Modeling

I am still having issues implementing this into my code, but there is the section you are looking for.

I think I am going to Bitfinex for now. The brokerage thing works with that. I just added this line and changed the exchange of my symbols. 

self.SetBrokerageModel(BrokerageName.Bitfinex , AccountType.Margin)

Hi Amandeep,

To include fees when using securities from the GDAX market, we need to call

self.SetBrokerageModel(BrokerageName.GDAX, AccountType.Cash)

The GDAX brokerage does not currently support margin trading, so it can only be used in the Algorithm Framework when we use the NullPortfolioConstructionModel and the NullExecutionModel. Using these models in a backtest ensures the algorithm won't place any trades.

To resolve this, we can either switch the market to Bitfinex or alter the code to follow the classic algorithm design. See the attached backtest for an example of the former.

Best,
Derek Melchin
