Post subject:  Running a Sample Strategy in Paper Trading Mode

I am trying to run a sample strategy "BollingerBands" available in OpenQuant sample solutions.

I can see there are three environments (Backtest, Paper and Live) we can select from but I do not understand how OQ distinguish between Paper and Live account in case of Execution Provider is IB? I cannot find any settings in Properties for IB Provider which can relate to this setting.

Please help!

Hi,
StrategyMode.Paper means that the real provider will be ignored for executions. Instead, ExecutionSimulator will be used.
StrategyMode.Paper is not associated with IB paper. IB is always a real-time provider from OpenQuant side.
