feature icon Watch the Intro Video

See how to run an intraday momentum strategy in QuantRocket, all the way from data collection to backtesting to live trading to performance tracking.

feature icon Expand Your Markets

Most traders focus on the US market — the most competitive market in the world. Yet the US stock market represents less than 50% of global market cap and only 25% of global listings.

Why International?

Escape crowded trades

Academic research shows that market anomalies are more enduring in international markets .

Find the right market

Write your strategy code once and backtest it in numerous countries to find where it works best.

Validate your backtests

A backtest that performs well across several global markets is more robust than one tested on a single market.

Trade around the clock

When the US closes, Asia opens. When Asia closes, Europe opens. Exploit profitable opportunities whenever they occur.

QuantRocket automatically tracks your live trading and provides informative statistics and plots of your strategy-by-strategy results. See what's working and what's not, or show off the results to your clients.

Your servers, your way

Cloud-based platforms like Quantopian and QuantConnect limit your compute resources and require uploading your secrets to third party servers. QuantRocket's ready-to-use trading infrastructure runs on your servers. Give your hardware as much power as you want, and keep your secrets safe.
