Can I use custom data in my strategy?

Yes, you can. But you have to do it manually.

Remember that Jesse's strategies are merely Python classes. That means whatever you usually do within Python, you can do it in Jesse as well.

However, if you're injecting custom data, the responsibilities are your own. For example, you need to be careful about the look-ahead bias; which in the case of using Jesse's price data, it's been taken care of for you behind the scenes.
