I've been trying to run two algorithms (separate robin-hood accounts). Both rely on opening positions just before close and closing them @ open - holding though regular market hours is not at all profitable. They have both failed on various days (>70% of the time) due to an error on quantopians end all week and thus both accounts have both fallen 10% (they open positions, then hold them for days, not overnight like they are supposed to - because the algorithm fails in the morning, and whenever I put it up, it fails again). Back-tests suggest that they should be up 2%.
This isn't a big deal in the long run - as long as it isn't going to continue to be an issue.
https://status.quantopian.com/ the following link says that the issue is "resolved"
"We've been managing a recurring resource problem affecting our
algorithm startup process. This morning the problem was particularly
bad, and this limited our ability to restart disconnected algorithms.
We are working to mitigate the problem."
That was posted @ 5:21 pm EDT.... I had a live algorithm fail due to an error on quantopians end @ 5:38 pm EDT
So is the problem solved? Or do I need to start waking up @ 5:45 am (MST) just too make sure I'm not about to lose hundreds/ thousands in a single day again?
If the problem hasn't been fixed, that's fine, I just need to know.
