Hi all,

I am new to quantconnect and am looking to create my first algorithm! I am trying to create something based on the following MACD & 200 EMA strategy.

Buy a stock or currency pair when the MACD line crosses over the signal line while below zero on the histogram & while the market is above the 200 EMA (showing an uptrend). I'd like to set a profit target of 1:1.5 risk-reward, so for example on a trade I would set a stop loss at -$100 and a take profit at +$150.

I've done some manual backtesting with this strategy and seen great returns, but I'd like to use quantconnect to backtest even more and potentially to live trade.

If anyone has ideas on how to get started, source code for similar algos, thoughts on how to improve the strategy, really anything at all, I would really appreciate your input!
