I hope this is the right place to ask 🙂
1: Can SQ import tick data for a specific Bitcoin derivatives exchange that I have access to? I have 30GB of trades and I would like to use this for the strategy generation.
2: SQ seems very focused on Forex but are anyone in here interested in crypto?
1. Sure, you only need to make sure tick data has proper format you can very easily import from a "csv" file, and also make sure symbol settings are corresponding to your broker...
2. Not at all...you can export every single instrument from every market, also different brokers like Tradestation. Fx is most common among beginners but it is only because fx marketing 😉 Real money is made on other markets like futures...
Thank you for the input and great to know that I can import .csv
Q: I'm mainly interested in generating strategies that are to be executed at Bitmex, the most liquid futures exchange for Bitcoin so I think the 'broker' part of SQ isn't relevant but I wonder if it can still be used for my purpose?
Currently we're working on a deep learning project that's running in a custom framework where we have our own execution engine connected to the Bitmex API but it would be great to be able to test SQ as well.
