QuantConnect Adds Forex and Equity Tick Data

I’m a bit late to this news, but QuantConnect, the cloud-based algorithmic trading platform, has announced that it has added tick data for the major forex pairs going back to 2007, and tick data for US equities going back to 1998, courtesy of FXCM and QuantQuote.  With a powerful IDE for programming strategies using C#, access to data from Estimize and StockPulse, and the attention of investors looking for emerging hedge fund managers to seed, QuantConnect is a worthy rival to Quantopian.  May the competition continue, to the benefit of the trading public.
