Here's a slight modification of the mean reversion from the quantopian examples. I added a feature to eliminate leverage etf's, and
a variable to limit the number of positions long and short (context.separate_positions) . I was curious to see the difference it would make to have no commission fees, but still allowing the normal settings for slippage on very small accounts. In this case I used $6000 in the account. With normal IB fees the thing loses a small fortune, as the position sizes are miniscule and even IB's low fee structure become prohibitive.
I'm a registered investment advisor who has been trading for my larger accounts, but deploys only no load funds and low cost etf's for a handful of small accounts I have under 50k . I would love to be able to use more active strategies, as my larger accounts outperform those balanced portfolios.
Before going with Robinhood, I'd like to know any problems/issues others have had with this relatively new organization. Anyone found any very active user groups around Robinhood that I could peruse?
