Trying to use Oanda forex broker with Python back trader

This O’Reilly tutorial got me pretty far with running Oanda Python API but I am still not pursuing them with the other grips I got. Check out my reviews on my Youtube video playlist for Oanda


Supposed to run this:

python oandatest.py –token=xxx –account=xxxx –data0=EUR_USD –timeframe=Days

Feedback found at links like this make me abandon this path using Oanda with backtrader.


I would think there needs to be better instructions on how to run this For me, I think  Dukascopy is a better broker as explained in my Dukascopy video playlist. Not only that, I think it is better to use a European broker for better selection vs a North American one like Oanda. Just my opinion as it stands.

Note I will still try to integrate with this Visual Chart. As it stands, I am not interested in trying the IB option since I am not advanced yet to set up an account with IB. That is all.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
