Analyzing latest Oanda forex and cfd data from Friday and today

I am bringing out Oanda’s forex and CFD eventually. Here is one analysis using Friday’s prediction to today. I just find crypto gives way better success compared to forex and CFD. No leverage need neither.

Should I dump Oanda forex and CFD trading?

Should I dump Oanda forex and CFD trading?

The actual video starts after a minute. This another Facebook live stream to teach about forex

As of today, I am find many more advantages with crypto as explained in this video

Forex:

pros: none

cons:

tiny moves (.5 % )

use 3x-10x leverage to get same moves as crypto

brokers are usually corrupt and will work against (except ECN)

commission fee via spreads

artificially stop loss (stop hunting)

CFDs

cons:

same as forex

tiny volume where the bars don’t move 3+ hours

Crypto (Binance)

pros:

potential high move (e.g. >1% moves in an hour)

no leverage needed

commissions fee are marginal (e.g. 0.1%)

cons:

they can cheat you/corrupt/manipulate on other exchanges others than Binance

Facebook Live: Why I should give up on Oanda forex and CFD trading

This video was on Facebook It is also in relation with this posting

Is forex worth it compared to lower risk better performance in crypto currency?

Sheesh… this ia time a waster as well as not a proper use of your capital deployment. You should always focus on where max opportunities will be. Remember this log is from the data form Oanda with both CFD and Forex. Now we have to look toward crypto on Binance for that. As a result, I shall do that as explained in this Facebook live stream.

P.S. I you want to trade the real deal instead of CFD, trade options/futures on Interactive Brokers. AS we know, that is big boy games where you better know how to pony up some cash.

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

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.

Coding Deep Learning for Beginners while using Oanda data

It is rare for me to get excited about resources to learn machine learning where math is not your top skill. All forex and CFD  instruments using Oanda data is listed below. This series seems to include an assumption you know nothing about the math behind these concepts. You may want to check out this article if you are ever interested in learning about deep learning.

All forex and CFD  instruments using Oanda data

 

I have included the list in a text file.

Remember I struggle using between Interactive Brokers Oanda for forex. I could use Interactive Brokers to execute order using Oanda data which is out of synch. The other idea I am think is using Oanda data and executing the trades. Just remember my views of Oanda are not positive as they have market making. I want to get that Oanda account to $2000 so I can move over to Interactive Brokers for their data access. I just want to show you build everything from nothing.

Hardest part of trading is optimal market entries

Hardest part of trading is optimal mark entry. I am tweakting my automated watchlist so I made video on this. This videos shown in the video below is part of Python Infrastructure Building Block course explained below. It is part of my Quant Elite membership which is also below. I am not going to showcase videos like this anymore but I want to stress the difficulty of find these optimal market indicators.
