Introducing CFD analysis with automation from Oanda broker

(Last Updated On: October 25, 2018)This is a big deal to showcase a new asset class  in the Analytics service (see below to join if interested). This just adds value to this service. It also gives you true edge where capital is going into virtually unknown areas as the markets turn against you. I am pretty amazed with this.

Anyhow, if you don’t know what CFDs are but they pretty well the poor man’s way to get into commodities, futures/options, fixed income, and stock indices. Yo can find a definition here


Do realize that this CFD market data is from Oanda. I still dislike them but I have 2 reasons why I stick with them:

  1. They are the only USA accessible forex broker who support Python. I get half of my user who are based out of the USA so I cannot ignore them.
  2. I do believe Oanda is more popular than a broker like Interactive Brokers according to Alexa.com
  3. You need to be careful of Oanda due to the market making division but I am not worried since my system does not depends on stop losses.
