Oanda mixed reviews over my choice of Dukascopy forex brokers live on my Youtube channel

Oanda mixed reviews over my choice of Dukascopy forex brokers with deadlines

Someone on Twitter recommended me to take a look at these reviews of Oanda. You should know my opinion and it is not exactly favorable for many reasons. I am not sure what is reliable but I think Babypips.com maybe best. Go below to my webinar live on my Youtube channel

The one I rely on most is this

Just an FYI note but I only use Oanda now because I have to. I think it is important to remember:

  1. Be wary of their market making by ensuring to only have virtual stop loss/take profit within your own system you develop.
  2. I found the API support help desk was useless. They don’t respond at all! You are very dependent on the projects found on GitHub to get by.
  3. I know of a few reports of lawsuits against. Oanda. I also base this on first hand knowledge.

You will find my Python course will be helpful to develop your own trading system to get around hard stop losses which are signals back to your broker. This could trigger the broker’s market making division to trade against you. One reason is you are letting the broker know your intended take profit or stop loss levels. This is something I would never recommend.

Here is an example of brokers trading against you….

Here is the Python course I speak of

More reasons why I now HAVE to use Oanda is this:

I also mentioned that Dukascopy Alexa ranking has been dropping over the year. I use this as a metric to potentially show that few people are using them. Also, I cannot be bothered to rewrite  Python scripts into Java to get it working with their platform JForex. Do remember I find Dukascopy is much better in so many ways. This includes they are an ECN which takes away the worry of market making which works against you. I just wish they had an API to keep up with competition since FXCM and Oanda supports Python.

Reminders

I have set a webinar event for tomorrow night on

Crypto vs Forex vs CFD

Now that I got the Oanda data working, we can do a comparison between all 3 of these asset classes with the latest data. I am pretty sure I will not be making a video playback available either. I will stream this LIVE on my Youtube channel at Youtube.com/quantlabs

This will take place on Monday Oct 29 at 7 PM EDT on LIVE on my Youtube channel at youtube.com/quantlabs

Tues is the deadline for the ANNUAL ANALYTICS sale.

BIG REVEAL. Forex and CFD asset classes analytics now Live from Oanda forex broker

Whooo! The Forex analysis is now working on my Quant Analytics.There are now 3 asset classes serving the Analytics membership!  I have revealed the CFD versions last night here:

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2018/10/introducing-cfd-analysis-automation-oanda-broker/

 

The rationale for using Oanda is in this post as well.

There was a  live stream on Youtube which is below. I explain all the interesting trading opportunities in all asset classes I cover (forex, CFD, and crypto). I cover all the features across these asset classes as well. If you are interested in joining this service. please click below!

Also see the most recent videos below as well.

New annual Analytics sale with 2 extra asset classes included

The  annual Analytics sale as of today. The deadline will be this Tues Oct 30. Do realize as I have added these 2 new asset classes using Oanda market data, I see no reason to keep the rate this low. I am also looking at splitting the Analytics service in to separate asset classes. This will make it even more expensive if I offered a combined bundle of all 3 asset classes which now includes Forex, FDX, and Crypto Currency.

Webinar scheduled for this Monday night at 7 PM EDT

I will be doing a webinar event this Monday at 7 PM EDT as noted for answer questions about this or the results of current market data.

Thanks

Introducing CFD analysis with automation from Oanda broker

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

https://www.cmcmarkets.com/en-ca/learn-cfd-trading/what-are-cfds

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.

Use market data different from your broker or mt4 or tradingview

I got this question via Facebook Messenger:

 

Hi Bryan, I have read https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A07CBHXq75A I was wondering, are there any codes on github where one could execute an indicator from MT4 or Tradingview via Java, or instead of executing orders, receiving buy sell signals via sms from an MT4 or tradingview indicator, via java, on an sms? How would you construct such indicator?

My answer is in the video but in a nutshell: always use the market data of where you trade or submit orders.

Everything described is in this future.

Also, in this video I addressed the changing situation of brokers due to their Python API support. One example is how Dukascopy seems to become irrelevant since more people want machine learning in their trading. It seems they seek Python for this. You can find all these answers towards the end of the video .

I teach this in my Python course

My latest status on forex data from IQFeed and Dukascopy broker

My latest status on forex data from IQFeed and Dukascopy broker

A series of questions from a Quant Analytics member

 

Order Analytics

Bryan,
are you still providing data feeds?Also, how do I set up data feeds from Macro Economics and others automatically, instead of manually downloading the .csv files?

I use IQFeed for now. I would use TradingEcononmics.com as  well when needed. It also against terms of service to redistribute feeds. 

You told me to forget about IQFeed a little while ago, when earlier it was your ‘go-to’ data source. Has something changed?

I am running into server connection problems with Dukascopy so I need to use IQfeed to retrieve forex data in a non restricted way.

No response over a number of weeks from Dukacopy support which is not good:

Have you stopped collecting data from them or was this just a recommendation you had for me specifically?

See above for your answer.
