Dear Quantiacs Team,
I have some questions on the Q19 Contest.
Are the rules and the stocks universe exactly the same as in the Q18 contest? If yes, why?
Can I use the codes from the Q18 contest for the search of investment strategies or are code adjustments necessary?

@eddiee Dear Eddiee, yes, the rules and the universe are the same. We will need some more time to extend the universe and the data set, so we decided to run a new contest with the same rules.
Please note that according to the rules at https://quantiacs.com/contest/19
A Trading System will be deemed to be a “unique“ Trading System if it was not submitted by the same user to a previous Contest and it was not published by the Sponsor itself and it was not submitted by another user to a previous Contest or to the current Contest. The Sponsor will run on submissions a correlation filter and will have to right to disqualify submissions which are not deemed to be unique.
So re-submitting the same system will result into a system which is not eligible for a prize.
