Dukascopy/Tickstory forex volume data is not trading volume

Getting Dukascopy / Tickstory forex data (I think the most famous free source of forex tick data), I noticed that the tick data csv has "bid volume" and "ask volume" columns.
Getting bar data for them, the "volume" column is just the sum of the "bid volume" of all ticks in the bar.

The way I understand the tick data, "bid volume" and "ask volume" are not real trading volumes, but rather the quantities in the top level of the order book (highest bid and lowest ask). If this is true, the "volume" data column in the bar data is very misleading, and this very famous and widely used data source does not contain 1) actual trading prices 2) trading volume.
Am I missing something? Dukascopy data can be obtained here: https://www.dukascopy.com/plugins/fxMarketWatch/?historical_data

Is there a maximum when trading CFD's ?

Hello, I have been trading CFD's (Single stocks and Forex) for some time now and it has been working quite well.
A question that i have been wanting an answer for: 1. is the bank where i trade these CFD's at (Dukascopy) Okay with people making money or do they rahter not have clients that are consintently gaining equity instead of losing? 2. And if they dont like clients being succesful, at what amount of profit/equity will they refuse their services? (Ballpark)
I have contacted the Bank but they were quite unclear about this so i was hoping to get some useful insight! :)
Kind regards

How reliable are free sources for historical data?

Has anyone used free sources like histdata.com, dukascopy, forexsb to train models or backtest their algos?
I am working on training a model to trade forex pairs. Still experimenting with the idea and don’t want to invest in an data api before I have a solid strategy.
Wondering if I can make use of this data to test the model with this data and move on to test the model with something paid afterwards OR just go with a single data source as best practices would say.
Thanks in advance!

What forex pairs order do you trade? Do you stick with standard pairs from your broker or do you trade usd vs other currencies?

I am running backtest on forex pairs. I am using dukascopy data with the standard pairs (audusd, eurusd, usdcad, etc).
Does it make a difference how I order the pairs because it makes a difference for my results.
For example if I only backtesting usd pairs.
Should I trade pairs as my broker presents them? audusd, eurusd, gbpusd, nzdusd, usdcad, usdchf, usdjpy.
Should I invert some pairs so I am trading usd against the other currencies so my buy and sell signals are against the dollar instead of a mix match. usdeur, usdgbp, usdcad, etc.
Trying to wrap my head around what this means. I would think the dollar correlation s would have some effect and I would want to pair everything against the dollar but I have been getting better results when I keep them as the broker has them.

Looking for a broker with proprietary online trading platform that allows you to determine quantities for SL and TP

Hi to all the trading gurus here, can anyone please help me out?
I'm looking for another broker with an online trading platform that specifically allows you (at the moment you place a trade, not afterwards) to determine the quantity of your SL and of your 1st Take Profit for the purpose of scaling out.
Referring to my screenshot, let's say I'm placing a 20,000 unit trade. For my initial SL, I set it at 20,000 quantity at whatever pips loss. No issues here and it's very standard.
For my TP1, to scale out by 50%, I would sell/buy 10,000 from my original 20,000. I DON'T have to place a separate countertrade at 50% later in order to scale out as my TP1 and then move my SL to breakeven. This feature lets you do it from the start. Other platforms that I have demo'ed don't allow you to set the TP1 at 50% of the position's initial volume.
I have tried Saxo, CTrader, Markets.com, IG, PLus500, XTB, FxPro, Oanda, Etoro, Dukascopy, CMC Markets, XM, FXCM, and a few others. None of them has this exact feature. Can anyone else let me know which other FX online platform has this feature?
Please don't ask me to stick to MT4/MT5 because I really hate their UI/UX/U-whatever. It's why I'm hunting for good online trading platforms that have the stuff I need.
I can only see the feature I've described on FOREX.com. And it also has all the indicators I use in my algorithm for FX.
But to be safe and diversify my funds, I'd like to use another trading platform similar to my current one.
Thanks much in advance, I appreciate the advice yeah

Bitstamp works with leading online banking in Switzerland to achieve bitcoin (BTC) financing and withdrawals——GoDapp

Bitstamp works with leading online banking in Switzerland to achieve bitcoin (BTC) financing and withdrawals——GoDapp
Bitstamp works with Dukascopy Bank to provide encrypted funds to bank customers. The bank is Switzerland's leading online bank, and its customers can now send Bitcoin (BTC) to their accounts to convert cryptocurrencies into US dollars, which they can use to trade on the Swiss foreign exchange market. Dukascopy customers can also withdraw funds back to their wallets in the form of BTC. Bitstamp will facilitate the exchange of legal and cryptocurrencies.

The Bitstamp team explained in the announcement why this partnership is the key to moving forward for cryptocurrency.

This partnership has taken us one step closer to the goal of narrowing the gap between cryptocurrency and traditional finance. Further proof that our efforts in compliance and regulation continue to yield results as the cryptocurrency industry matures rapidly.

The Geneva-based Dukascopy Bank offers traditional banking services as well as cryptocurrency trading services, forex and binary options trading to retail and institutional investors through CFDs. The bank explained that trading account financing using cryptocurrencies is subject to the following conditions:

Deposits and withdrawals from trading accounts currently only accept bitcoin
After transferring the BTC, the bank immediately converts it into US dollars and deposits it in the customer account.
At the time of withdrawal, the dollar amount from the customer's account is converted to BTC and transferred to the Bitcoin wallet associated with the user's account.
The base legal currency is the US dollar
The maximum net deposit that can be deposited is $50,000 (total deposit minus total amount drawn)
Bitcoin deposits are not processed immediately. Therefore, the trader must accept the possibility of loss due to changes in the BTC / USD exchange rate during the conversion period.
BTC deposits and withdrawals are only processed within the working day associated with the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland
As mentioned earlier, Dukascopy does not provide direct transactions for cryptocurrencies. Bank customers can conduct cryptocurrency transactions through CFDs (CFDs) based on price movements of cryptocurrencies or their derivatives.

Best bid & ask size data for forex available?

Hi,
Currently, I use Dukascopy free forex data to train an algorithm. The data contains bid & ask price and bid & ask volume for all ticks. As far as I understand, bid & ask volume is the trading volume and not the best bid & ask size (the amount which is offered for the best price).
Does anyone know of a data source which contains the bid & ask size as well? Generally, I am willing to pay something for it provided I get a half a year of historical data first for free (or for a reasonable fixed price) to test if it is useful at all.
So, I need the following:
- Historical forex data (tick or 1s-15s bars)- Live forex data (tick or at 1s-15s bars)- Columns: time, bid & ask price, bid & ask size, bid & ask trading volume

Any suggestions?

Edit: I am a student. Maybe that helps to get free data from a expensive provider? :-)

Belarus’ Biggest Bank is ‘Working on’ Launching Its Own Cryptocurrency Exchange

According to a report by local news outlet BeITA, Belarusbank, the largest bank in Belarus, is considering the launch of its very own cryptocurrency exchange platform.
The plans for the exchange were revealed by Viktor Ananich, the Chairman of Belrusbank’s board. Speaking with Belarus 1 TV channel, Ananich remarked:
“We are considering a possibility to establish a cryptocurrency exchange. We are working on it.”
For Belarusbank, Digitization is the Future
The bank is looking to intensify its focus on digitization, and it is reportedly seeking ways to expand its range of services by forming alliances with various mobile service providers. In addition to the reported cryptocurrency exchange, BeITA also stated that the bank is in the process of issuing virtual cards soon.
Ananich added, “Digitalization-related projects will be virtually exclusive in nature. However, at present, things are changing very fast, and we need to keep up with them.”
Crypto-Friendly Belarus
It is widely speculated that Belarusbank’s efforts will go on quite smoothly, especially considering that the government of Belarus already legalized cryptocurrency-related activities to be carried out in the country last year. President Alexander Lukashenko signed a presidential decree that introduced comprehensive legislation and allowed for the legalization of the crypto sector.
The presidential decree, titled “On the Development of the Digital Economy” came into effect on March 28, 2018. To encourage the development of the digital economy in the country, the presidential decree provided legalization of crypto-related activities in the country and also introduced tax reliefs for crypto-based businesses, which will last till January 1, 2023.
The Latest Bank-Backed Crypto Exchange
Belarusbank’s efforts will be in similar style to that of Japanese financial services giant SBI Group. The financial services provider partnered with Denmark-based blockchain startup Sepior in October 2018. In a published press release, Sepior announced that SBI would by using its “threshold signature” wallet technology with its VCTRAADE exchange to ensure “on-line contents and transactions.”
SBI Virtual Currencies, a subsidiary of SBI Holdings, launched VCTRADE in June 2018 and it became the first government-licensed and bank-backed cryptocurrency exchange. At its inception, VCTRADE provided support for XRP, although trading in Bitcoin (TC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) were announced later.
Earlier this month, major crypto exchange Bitstamp announced its partnership with Swiss online bank Dukascopy to conduct Bitcoin transactions on behalf of the bank. The terms of the agreement state that clients will be able to make Bitcoin transfers to their accounts, convert them to fiat currency, and make trades on the Swiss Forex market.
Such news can not but rejoice, because it can be a second wind for the entire cryptorink, for example, as Gamblica.

Reliable brokers?

Hey guys! How are you?
I would like to know your opinion on where should I open my first big live account. I have been trading forex for an year profitably on a smaller account with Pepperstone, but I would really like to find a safer broker if I want to put more money. I have been either considering opening an account with a broker like dukascopy (thoughts/other broker recommendations?) or starting to trade futures altogether (also recommendations on good brokers?). I trade EURUSD mainly technical scalping. Peppers low commision works really good for this.
What do you think?

Forex broker that is not a bucketshop?

Hi algotraders,
I'm looking for a reputable forex broker that is not a bucketshop, but does provide fast direct access their API (and directly sends orders to their matching engine, no funny business with my orders). I tried some forex years ago, and signed up for FXCM (which was reputable back then), but it turns out they've also been scamming customers. The other big ones from back in the day (Dukascopy, Saxo), are they any good? I need lots of liquidity an level II orderbooks and trades as well.
Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction,
JR

Do you think someone will buy my C++ source code of a backtest/trade system?

Hi all,
This is not an AD, but I'm asking your opinion whether someone may be interested in my system, or whehter it's worth that I do some work to find a buyer. This is a backtesting and trade system, not strategy.
Main functions and features: * Written in C++, using Qt framework. Can run on Windows, Linux, and Mac. * Console program, very fast. * Currently only support Forex, but it's easy to extend to support other markets, such as Stock. * Backtesting. Candle bar based backtesting. It's not difficult to support tick based backtesting. * Optimization. Currently only brute force is supported, but it's quite easy to plug in other methods. * Walkforward testing. * Multiple threading. OpenMp is used for multithreading, each backtesting task is allocated on a CPU core. * One robot can use multiple instruments and multiple time frames. * Live trading system. Currently Oanda REST API is implemented. One robot can place buy/sell order on different account, to avoid no-hedging limitation. I have used it on my live account, and it works well. * Any more trade platforms should be able to be integrated to the system, such as FIX, but I didnt do any investigation yet. * Some indicators are included. MA, RSI, MACD, PSAR, etc, using ta_lib. New indicators can be developed easily. * Dukascopy data download. Incremental download tick data from Dukascopy, very fast. * Oanda data download. Using Oanda REST API, incremental, very fast. * Simple charting. So the report contains a balance chart, very intuitive. * Some other features, such as convert Dukascopy tick data to internal candle binary data, convert candle data to MT4 CSV, etc. * Unit testing. Some key components are unit tested. * High quality code. I'm an experienced developer. You can check my code quality and style from my open source C++ library, cpgf, on github, though it's not finance related. * Very good performance. The bar based backtesting system is highly optimized. * Since the architecture is good, the system can be used as either a program or a library. * About 50K lines of C++ code. * I spent about one year partial time on it.
My question is, do you think anyone will be interested to buy my source code? And how much do you think I should charge for? Or beside selling the source code, what do you think I can do to earn some money via the system? My original purpose developing such a system is to use by myself, but I'm not sure when I can find a good strategy to earn some money for me.
Thanks

Start 2: 8th Failed Attempt and going for the 9th

In my previous post, I started my ventures to make some money. So here's my progress:

Income Stream No. 1: Forex

The system failed and kinda blew my $100 deposit on it. What I've learnt is that:
Did more reading and found that there's a better way to test, build and test again before I can begin selling signal subscription in the MQL market. My next step is to try and implement a Kumo Breakout with IKH. I'm keeping my strategies as simple as possible while the success metrics is that its self-sustainable on its own with less of my own intervention. I can simply test without having to go with a broker first to get my strategy working with quality data (i.e. without renting a VPS and downloading all of the data to my machine for backtesting). By utilising tickstory.com, I can just download all of the Dukascopy tick data and then back test from there. Of course, this is going to be different if I were to trade with a broker account because spreads. Will adjust later but for now, I have to focus on building my signal service.

Income Stream No. 2: Amazon

I have to cancel this and won't follow-through. Instead I'm moving towards Income Stream No. 3 instead. Problem was that I didn't find the time to contact suppliers and ask for rebranding or customization on interested items that I would to sell and resell on Amazon FBA. Family came first so... yeah...

Income Stream No. 3: SaaS

Good news, it's almost ready. Building a multi-tenant app with Django was very tasking on my time especially with the setup. I've had bumps in the past month with my machine not being able to load the configuration set up for my Postgresql Database. I was trying to build a High Availability Cluster set up but it took too long, so I'll have to build that part later. Deploying on AWS is harder than I thought though. Damn security groups, couldn't load properly. I guess I have to hit up Youtube tutorials on AWS for being such a noob.
Bad news, is whats pending at the moment an activated Stripe account. I'm still waiting for my LLC to go through its approval process (registered with a Delaware agent) and should come at any time soon. Once I have an LLC registered, I should be able to apply for an EIN at the same time. So until that happens, I'll need to quickly build my SaaS app with a test Stripe account until it's MVP ready.

In the End

If at first you don't succeed, try again after you learn your mistake(s). Even if it means blowing your deposit and sacrificing sleep!

Brokerages:
There are many factors to consider when choosing a brokerage. Regulations typically force US traders to only trade at US brokerages, while international traders have more choice. After considering location you need to consider how much capital you will start trading with as many have minimum deposit levels. Once you’ve narrowed that down you can compared spreads and execution. ECN brokers execute your orders straight through to their liquidity providers, while market maker brokers may pair up your trades with other clients. Market maker brokers typically will partially hedge your positions on the interbank market. Many consider this to be a conflict of interest and prefer to trade at an ECN broker who would have an active motive to see you succeed. Lastly, brokers run inherently risky business models so it is important to consider the risk of bankruptcy.

FAQ:
I need to exchange money, how do I do it?
This isn’t what this sub is for. Your best bet is using your bank or an online exchange service. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee.
I have money in one currency and need to exchange it into another sometime in the future, should I wait?
Don’t ask us this. We speculate intraday in FX and shouldn’t be relied on to tell you what’s best for you. Exchange the money when you need it.
I have an FX account, should I start trading demo or live?
This is highly debatable. You should definitely demo trade until you have mastered how to use the trading platform on desktop and mobile. After that it’s up to you. Many think that the psychology of trading live vs demo trading is massively different. So it may pay to learn to trade live. Just be warned that most FX traders lose almost their entire first account so start with a low affordable balance.
What’s money management?
Money management is a form of risk management and is arguably the most important aspect of your trading when it comes to long term survival. You should always enter trades with a stop loss - the distance of the stop allows you to calculate how large of a percent of your account balance will be lost if your trade stops out. You can run a monte carlo simulation to figure out the risk of having a number of trades go against you in a row to drain your account. The general rule is that you should only risk losing 1-4% of your account per trade entered.
More on this here: www.investopedia.com/articles/forex/06/fxmoneymgmt.asp[35]
www.swing-trade-stocks.com/money-management.html[36]
What about automated trading?
Retail FX traders have been known to program “Expert Advisors” (EAs) to automate trading. It’s generally advisable to stay away from that until you’re very experienced. Never buy an EA from a developer because the vast majority of them are scams.
What indicators are best?
That’s up to you to test and find out. Many in this forum dislike oscillating indicators since they fail to capture the essence of what moves price. With experience you will discover what works best for you. In my experience indicators that are most popular with professional traders are those that provide trading “levels” such as pivot points, fibonacci, moving averages, trendlines, etc.
What timeframe should I trade?
Price action can vary in different timeframes. In longer term timeframes the price action and fundamentals are much more clear. Unfortunately it would take a very long time to figure out whether or not what you’re doing is successful on longer timeframes. In shorter timeframes you can often tell very quickly if what you’re doing is profitable. Unfortunately there’s a lot more “noise” on these levels which can prove deceptive for those trying to learn. Therefore the best bet is to use a multi-timeframe analysis, working from top-down to come up with trades.
Should I trade using fundamental analysis (FA) of technical analysis (TA)?
This is a long standing argument in these forums and elsewhere. I’ll settle it here - you should have an understanding of both. Yes there are traders who blindly ignore one of the other but a truly well rounded trader should understand and implement both into the analysis. The market is driven in the longer term through FA. But TA is necessary to give traders a place to enter and exit trades from a psychological risk/reward standpoint.
I’ve heard trading Binary Options is an easy way to make money?
The general advice is to stay away from binaries. The structure of binary options is so that when you lose the broker wins. This incentive has created a very scammy industry where there are few legitimate binary options brokers. In addition in order to be profitable in binaries you have to win 55-65% of the time. That’s a much higher premium over spot FX.
Am I actually exchanging currencies?
Yes and no. Your broker handles spot FX is currency pairs. Although they make an exchange at the settlement date they treat your position in your account as a virtual currency pair. Think of it like a contract where you can only buy or sell it as a pair. In this sense you are always long one currency while short another. You are merely speculating that one currency will appreciate or depreciate vs another.
Why didn't my order fill?
Even if price appears to cross over a line on your chart it does not guarantee a fill. Different charting platforms chart different prices - some chart the bid price, some the ask price and some the midpoint price. To fill a limit order price needs to cross your limit's price plus the spread at the time that it is crossing. If it does not equal or exceed the spread then it will not fill. Be wary that in general spreads are not fixed. So what may fill at one time may not at another.

Questions on converting GMT+0 data (Dukascopy) to New York close candles

Hi all,
I downloaded Dukascopy historical data. The data is one hour per file and the time zone is GMT+0. I would like to write some program to convert the tick data to New York close candles, such as four hours and daily. In each week the data starts from 23h Sunday to 22h Friday.
I have several questions on the time zone conversion,
1, No matter what session we talk about, one Forex trading week always contain 24*5=120 hours, right?
2, What's the data in each week should be converted to NY close? Since NY is GMT-5, I think the NY week should start from the sixth hour of the week in the GMT+0 data?
3, Then when is the NY week end in the GMT+0 data?
To be clear, we can think the GMT+0 data is, Sunday: 2 hours, Monday~Thursday: 24 hours each day, Friday: 22 hours Then how to split those 120 hours to 5 candles with NY close?
I used TickStory to generate the NY data, but there is some wrong prices which generate very bad result in my back test, so I would like to generate the data by myself.
Thanks

How Should I Model a Spread for Commissions in Simulations?

I'm still doing a lot of backtesting of some software I have been writing to try to trade forex. I got to the point where I realized that I don't understand commissions with forex brokerages. I'm kind of hoping I'm being unnecessarily cruel with myself in the commissions I'm charging to myself.
I have some EURUSD data I downloaded off of dukascopy that I've been using in the simulations. I saw on Oanda their average spread for EURUSD these days is 1.2 pips. It can go down to 0.8 and it sometimes spikes above that. So what I have been doing in the simulation is using the next bar's closing price, plus 0.00012 for my long entrance price. For exiting a position, I use the next bar's closing price, minus 0.00012. I was looking at that and was wondering if I'm actually using a spread of 2.4. Am I being too hard on myself?
I assume that brokerages that charge a spread don't really change anything based on amount of margin used, because it's reflected in the price used in the transactions. Is that true?
I also wondered if brokerages that charge a spread just bake it into the prices in their data feed.
I've seen a lot of advice to just open an account and start trying it out there. I'd like to forward test, but I really don't want to go through all the motions if I've proven my strategy is already too risky for my tastes without all that.
