FAQs for smart python algo trading with crypto and forex

I got a question on Python algo trading  from someone in Belgium. Here is the commentary:

 

I am very much into forextrading and also very much into programming (I work in IT), but I never combined the two. Just like you, I use MotiveWave to trade (but just like you, I am a far bigger fan of *nux systems and terminals)

I program in Python quite often, but I never used it to trade Forex (never touched crypto either, because it is so volatile, and no rules seem to apply to it. Your bot seems profitable though, so I wonder how you got that far)

I stumbled upon your blog a while ago and your algo / system looks really promising !!

So I was looking into buying one of your Python courses, to help me on my way. I watched most of your free videos and read all of your .pdf’s. A ton of interesting stuff there !

 

I noticed you added a banner on your blog recently that your course now includes the source code for your crypto trading bot. Which course is this ? The python 3 one ? And are we talking raw code of .py scripts then ? So will I be able to see what filters you use and what requirements need to be fulfilled before a trade gets opened or closed ? Please do not think that I am lazy, and do not want to put in the work, because making a serious effort never scared me. It’s just nice to know how big the ‘push in the right direction’ that you talk about will be 🙂

 

On a different note: I am trading with FXCM and AM now, but I do not believe they are good brokers to trade algos with. You use Oanda and IQfeed for Forex and what for crypto ?

 

Thanks for taking the time to answer these n00b-questions !

Hope this helps anyone out the from these videos

 

After watching this video, this person said:

Thank you very much for your elaborate answer. I have watched the “FAQ-video” and will gladly admit that you did a great job -as always- and that you answered all my questions in a clear way.
I will sleep a night on it, but I believe you will count an extra head in your chatroom from this weekend onwards 🙂
Please keep up the great work you are doing in educating the community and showing us the ins and outs of algotrading !!

Into it about a week now.  Pretty happy.  Any bugs I’ve found they have fixed immediately.  Will be running in production in a few days and will let you know how stability is.  Honestly I would rate their API as good as some of the much more expensive stuff and you can retrofit it with whatever GUI you want (pro or con depending on requirements).

Have not done any performance testing yet but their event bus processing seems to be a focal point for them so I’m sure its at the top of their list.  BTW, these guys have very similar IP as Quanthouse which is pretty well regarded.
