It was in the end of May this year that LeapRate reported about the partnership between Tradier Brokerage, Inc., API provider and a securities brokerage, and QuantConnect, an expert in the area of developing and testing algorithmic trading strategies. The partnership is obviously bearing fruit, according to an update published by QuantConnect.
QuantConnect estimates that from May 27, 2015 to June 11, 2015 – which is a period of less than two weeks after sealing the partnership with Tradier, there has been a 300% rise in user engagement signals, including traffic, coding and backtesting.
The collaboration saw QuantConnect integrated to Tradier’s application programming interface (API). As a result, users of QuantConnect’s web-based algorithm trading offering have gained the opportunity to connect to streaming data and to execute trades directly from the platform using the Tradier Brokerage API.
QuantConnect also notes the contribution of a special offer by Tradier for an initial release of a limited number of accounts at $1 per trade to QuantConnect users.
