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.

This is currently HALF PRICE with the addition of Forex and CFDs now!

IQFeed still leads the choice for backtesting and real time market feed over Interactive Brokers ActiveTick and others

IQFeed still leads the choice for backtesting and real time market feed over Interactive Brokers ActiveTick  and others

IQFEED most bang for you buck

http://ofa.invisionzone.com/index.php?/topic/99-surveycomparison-data-feed-providers-kinetick-iqfeed-esignal/

I can verify this ?

Qfeed (True Historical Order Flow)

 

 

I’m watching the level-2 screen and the level-1 screen on IB and it never seems to match up with the quotes that I get out of IQFeed. IQFeed is definitely realtime, since I’m seeing the prices match up. It’s just that the sizes don’t match up. Which one is missing exchanges, or is one pulling in regional data that’s not the same?

 

http://www.elitetrader.com/et/index.php?threads/iqfeed-l1-quote-vs-ib-quotes.219521/

I still think IQFEED is the best for quality and historical. The APIs are really good depsite the extra little bit you pay for. The pro ones are 10x the price!

You should see my course on this exact. Still the best that I now of!

Is C++ STILL the perfect choice for modern app development. Or is DOTNET CSharp or FSharp better?

Is  C++  STILL the perfect choice for modern app development. Or is DOTNET CSharp or FSharp better?

Seriously? This is why I still like my languages like .NET C# and F# which are real easy to work with!! Also, I don’t need to worry about my own memory management like C++. Yes, the latest .NET has some decent options to minimize the impact of garbage collection.

See…writing your own trading software is really the only solution and choice you have to true profitablity

This just came in from Linked In:

 

Hi Bryan,

 

Firstly, thanks for accepting my invitation to connect. I’m following you on Quantlabs.net (youtube and your academy forum) for quite some time.

 

As you can see from my profile I’m since over 15 years professionally developing software (for banks and fin. instis) and some years did also trading. However, prop trading has been overall bad (mostly FX and some futures).

 

Some weeks back I’ve ordered a live IQFeed data feed and started building a serverside trading module, from the scratch with native C++ only. Lately you came to my mind and I was asking myself I we could collaborate. I know you have gone thru many products, but believe me there is nothing better than your own software which will fullfil your own special needs. I think of firstly implementing some volume based strategies, but I’m still far away. Key topics are in range of millisocend over FIX (NO, no IB! :)), and once running I’ll port to linux. Later I’m dreaming of FPGA. For IQFeed is inceredibly good for its price.

 

What do you think? Any other ideas?

 

I just sent this out as a response:

What are the technical steps for a complete profitable trading operation? Qaunt, HFT, Excel, DotNet topics included

Why use Apple Mac or Linux with limited software support and choice in quant trading or data providers like IQFeed?

Another query from a site visitor. Why be a technical  bonehead in your  choice when you should focused on profits?

 

Using Mac is severely limited in support of choice. You could use the FIX option but I would rather use Windows over that at this point.
