Is Paper Trading going to shut down?

Are there any plans to discontinue the paper trading feature?

2 responses

We have no plans to discontinue paper trading. We have looked at the costs of supporting the feature, and we may decide to limit the number of paper trading algorithms per person. (Why someone would need 200 paper trading algorithms is a real head-scratcher. . . .)

That said, this isn't a promise to provide the feature forever. As Quantopian evolves we will periodically evaluate what features make sense to support and which ones don't.
