Trying to use Oanda forex broker with Python back trader

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.
