This topic covers never seen info I log for my trading bot’s positions manager. This helps track for optimal exits once triggered.

Convenience of using data frame structure instead

Once you start working with more convenient data structures like data frames, you start to see how your coding becomes more expedient. This is very handy if you like to see your data structured no different than a spreadsheet like Excel. You can quickly run basic math functions on columns which is very handy. It is no wonder I am addicted to my style of coding within Python. Di you know I have a entire set of courses to introduce you learning how to build a primitive algo trading system?

Working Oanda v2 API tips to work with Python

 

I still find thi s broker really tough to understand as explained below. As a result, my views of Oanda API has not changed. I am trying to help out those Americans who want to do algo trading. It seems Oanda is the last broker of it’s kind to support Python API for forex and CFD for US residents. Also, they are still a market maker so watch out in terms of trusting them. Based on my experience below, nothing huge has improved in terms of getting things working via their API.  As you will read, the second link was helpful to make it work. The question is how long will these examples will still work until Oanda decide to change their API functionality yet again.

I think I finally got Oanda v20 running with Python. This broker is a complete nightmare with the various document (or lack of) to install/implement via GitHub. I tried many different ways but you may want to visit these links below:

https://github.com/oanda/v20-python-samples

You will need to ensure that you create your broker account and API tokens. These will be needed for the examples below. The link above provides a convenient Python script to create your V20.conf file. You may want to follow that process. There are also mentions of needing different virtual environments. I found this is not needed with the example code below.

https://github.com/hootnot/oanda-api-v20

The examples found in this link seems to work as long as your provide a valid V20 API token and account Id. One confusing part is use the AccountID which is the active_account found in the .conf file. I never used the username in any of the example above. As I am using Mac OS where the .v20.conf is created and stored in /Users/currentuser

 

The next though part is to filter through the response data.

As for the backtrader Python package, I did not find a Quickstart Tutorial for how to implement Oanda. Either that or it was too involved. I found another forum posting so I just decided to go native Oanda instead of using another Python package for access.

64 bit version Dukascopy Forex tips with Bitcoin crypto addition

64 bit version Dukascopy Forex tips with Bitcoin crypto addition

This is correspondence from some very knowledgable in Dukascopy JForex on tips for Memory, Installation, and surprise Bitcoin trading


1) JForex heap space
it says min. RAM 1GB here: https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/trading_login/
But it is too little most of the time.

Do you use 64 bit Java ?
Have you increased the heap size?
Probably you have, but just in case here come my instructions on this topic

—> I have done this which helps


2) Allow more memory usage of JForex
Don’t use the installed JForex, use Launch JForex 3 (No-installation) instead!
To increase the memory you have to edit the JForex start file, which you get from this website if you click on “JFOREX DEMO START”: http://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/trading_login/marketplace_demo_login/
You can use the right mouse botton to save the file to a destination where you can find it. From there you should be able to edit it.

Here is everything in detail:
a) First of all please check your operating system. It has to be a 64 bit operating system.
b) Then check your Java version. It has to be a 64 bit version. If not, deinstall your current Java and install the 64 bit version. You can find it here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html
download the latest JRE 7, 64 bit version: Windows x64 . Take Java 7 as it is better tested with JForex. But it should run with Java 8 as well.
c) Instead of running JForex from dukascopy.com, you have to download the jForex.jnlp file on the hard drive and edit it as mentioned above.
d) Open the jForex.jnlp file and search for the following line :
<java version=”1.6+” initial-heap-size=”32m” max-heap-size=”512m”/>
e) Edit it and set the max-heap-size to 1512m or more. This gives JForex 1.5 GB of max. memory or more.
f) Then run JForex from the modified jnlp file on your hard drive by a double click. Log in.
g) Be aware: when Dukascopy makes JForex updates, you might have to download the new jnlp file again and redo the previous described steps.

 

-> Have not tried but prefer to run the downloadable self running without the JNLP option


You might then see that JForex uses way more memory than 700 MB, e.g. while back testing, you will see this usage in the task manager.
You can also watch your current JForex memory consumption in JForex by activating the box “Show Java memory heap”, you can find this in Menu Tools->Preferences->Advanced.

3) Running serveral JForex
Have you ever tried to open several JForex on the same account.
This shares CPU cores and should increase speed.
Maybe you should open 10 instruments per JForex. Subscribe only to instruments, which are used in the opened JForex.
—> that would be useful but a wonky programming trick. Would it not just be better to have more RAM on a server while watching more instruments? e.g. in my case 40 to 60+

—> Not bad so congrats on that. I am getting more comfortable but i may do topic of it next Monday


6) BTC/USD on Dukascopy
Have you also detect Bitcoin mentioned here:
https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/jforex/forum/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=56002
https://www.dukascopy.com/client/javadoc3/com/dukascopy/api/Instrument.html#BTCUSD
Seems they get ready for Bitcoin and Ethereum.

—> This is HUGE so thanks for these notes

Quant Hiring and Friendly Tips

 

ha ha insider traders are now high speed traders. I quote:

  • High-speed traders who have the technology and skill to plausibly believe that they can react faster to news than the rest of the market;

  • Low-speed traders who understand that they do not have the technology or skill to react faster to news than the rest of the market, and so do not attempt to trade rapidly in response to news; and

  • Idiots.

  • For we are idiots?
