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….

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

Don’t Worry, Be Happy – HFT Is Over, Dead, It’s Done

Don’t Worry, Be Happy – HFT Is Over, Dead, It’s Done

From the article:

The people actually doing HFT now are no longer making those super profits:

Alex’s story repeats Tabb Group data documenting a roughly 85 percent drop in HFT revenues in US equity trading. The Virtu-KCG proposed tie-up and the Quantlabs-Teza consummated one are indications of consolidation that is typical of maturing industries, and a shift it the business model of these firms.

IQFEED most bang for you buck

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?

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!
