allow shorting crypto currency on these exchanges?

 

Lots of crypto currency exchanges do not allow shorting as we are now in a definite bear market. As a result there are a few exchanges that allow shorting according to my Telegram group:

Bitfinex
Bitmex

As you Binance is not one of them. I have looked for other options via these links:

Please be advised

Using CCXT with a recent script I sourced to download generically from various exchanges is powerful. I have thought come across some severe limitations in the process.

  1. Binance appears to be the most reliable since you have the widest selection of timeframes you can use. Also, you can download up to 1000 rows into a comma separated value file as well.
  2. Both Bitmex and OKEx offer some form downloading limit of 500 which really messes up my analytical Python script. When downloading, you can only seem to have a limit of 400 to just under 500. This seems to work only work for lower time frames like 1 or 5 minutes. As the timeframe selection is very limited compared to Binance.

I am unsure of other crypto currency exchanges what limitations offer but I will stick with Binance for now as the only exchange of interest. It seems that the others offer much lower daily volume which means slower fills due to lower liquidity.  Also the other exchanges have weird download exceptions which also means the charting will not work as well.

 

Further note about Bitfinix

I just execute 5 request no different than Binance, Bitfinex starts thinking it is being attacked where it responds:

ccxt.base.errors.DDoSProtection: bitfinex {“error”:”ERR_RATE_LIMIT”}

Pretty pathetic architecture if you ask me.

In summary, it just seems that Binance works out of box for both downloading and charting.

 

Update: Which Bitcoin crypto currency bot project? Gekko vs ccxt vs Tribeca vs Blackbird

The advantages

This has a huge benefit if you are into building scanners. Also, remember I did not fund any of these exchanges but always remember to be on guard with your data with exchanges you may not trust.

This package is best hands down if you want to easily stay up to date on these ever changing exchanges. This is especially true for any Asian based exchanged that could be closed down at any time by local regulators.

hype from fiction of popular Bitcoin and crypto currency exchanges

I have put together a 20 minute video explaining how I plan to move ahead with this crypto currency trading confusion. It seems the withdrawal out of certain exchanges can get sort of hairy. Watch my video here for your thoughts:
See the links of video here http://quantlabs.net/blog/2017/12/separating-the-hype-from-fiction-of-popular-bitcoin-and-crypto-currency-exchanges/
Here are some recent comments from the video so far:

 

Hey Bryan, thanks for the vid! I started trading with crypto a couple weeks ago and finding some “AH-HA” moments that has costed me some coins in the process. No biggie… I agree, I read some opinions online regarding Bitfinex that had me stay away from it. Regarding IOTA, I been getting conflicting reviews that, again, has me on the sidelines with this coin and just watching it for now. What are your thoughts on Cardano (ADA)? Let me know what your take on this coin. As always, your input on things is always appreciated. Cheers!

 

…You are right that Bitcoin withdrawals can sometimes take a few hours (usually around 30 mins), but let’s put that into perspective….

 

 

What is your throught on all this?
Did you know the Bitcoin future contracts crashed after breaking the circuit from the 20+% move last night?

Impressive Python package for integrating over 60 Bitcoin cyrpto currency exchanges

 

Impressive Python package for integrating over 60 Bitcoin cyrpto currency exchanges

<< Test First Name >>,

I found an impressive Python package that interfaces with 60+ crypto currency exchanges. It seems this package is regularly updated and works which is a very positive development. As a result, I created a video to explain the demonstration of this. Also with the active link below is the exchanges the CME will use for the futures contracts starting in December.

After my forex trading strategy starts testing, I will in the meantime start focusing on the crypto currency market to apply the same trading strategy for these various exchanges. From there, I will expand the Quant Analytics to cover signals for this fast paced asset class of crypto currency.

 

If you are ever interested in building out an algo trading business like I have been running, you maybe interested to know about the Quant ELITE service version 2. This does include all courses including the one described below.

 

Get details here.

 

I also have a specific course for Python Infrastructure Building Blocks which is the most popular item I have.

 

Get the details here.

 

If you are interested in getting this half price, do let me know by responding to this email. This is the fastest path to learn algo trading that I know of.

 

Thanks Bryan

 

P.S. If you are interested in knowing the current status of my Forex Trading Strategy, I set a live online Meetup webinar event this Nov 20 at 7 PM EDT.
