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.
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 tradingis optimal markentry. 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.

Sample test different technical indicators for optimal forex market entries
There seems to be no spread or volume different when testing popular pairs vs volatile
Posted to my Telegram private group:
Here are my tests so far for a late friday EDT. for dukascopy, the 2 most volatile pairs (e.g. ZARJPY and USDZAR) vs more popular pairs like EURUSD and USDJPY have the similar spread cost and volume is very similar across the board. This is all within Dukascopy. I will have a video posted later today on it. I think I may need to retest on a Weds afternoon to see if there is a differennce but I wanted to test this thoery on random trading day with no news shocks.
I have also announced I will be moving this ‘newsletter’ to another server from Infusionsoft. You can also get my free 2 PDFs on (in case you never got them):
Trade Like a Boss
Tecbnical Secrets in Algo Trading
You can also be part of this new newsletter on this server. I am thinking of actually discontinuing this current one you are reading from. It has been highly recommended to manually opt in yourself into this new server.
Let me test this Oanda Python forex trading package
I like what Interactive Brokers have their currencies but the supported listed is really limited compared to Oanda. Why limit your choice? There are some wild swings I want my trading to be part of like Turkish Lira, Egpyt, etc.
Let me try out this package to see what comes out of this
Let me test this Oanda Python forex trading package
Bonehead MOVE #1: Where do I get my account ID#? I can find the token key. What is with this stupid gobbly gook way to do it? http://developer.oanda.com/rest-live/accounts/
For this above, you need to go under ‘My Accounts’ then choose Primary to view your account ID.
NOTE: A real live trading account has now been opened. For us Canucks, we can fund accounts with Paypal which ain’t too bad.
This account has been funded with a huge back breaking/whopping $20 CDN !
This new Phase that will be taught is a 24-week section which covers many fundamental aspects of these asset classes. We will focus on examples as we mirror my favorite UC Davis course that focuses on fundamental analysis. I also provide both C++ and Python coding samples throughout this course. The main idea of these presentations is to learn further on these topics outside of the course material. Our topic for this day is:
Options Future Equation class library with Test Client A couple of notes: I will not be teaching content live anymore after this as I move into an analytics service in a few months.
