Access to Bitcoin Charting

Question

Any chance or possibility to add Bitcoin to Medved Trader or is it already available? I don't necessarily mean to trade Bitcoin but just to view quotes and charts in Medved Trader? I have not been able to find any charting software to display my system on current bitcoin charting platforms.

OK< I see. You have TICK Charts and those depend on volume being there. The is a problem in our stuff with BITFINEX where volume was retrieved on Backfill, but not updated with real-time data, so the result is the tick charts only showed up to the point that MT had changing volume.  (will fix that)

Also, Tick charts for now will not be that accurate with Crypto Currencies because volume is in decimals. Right now MT volume is an integer, so decimal trades like 0.02345 bitcoin are not recorded with volume in effect. We will be fixing that.

I emailed you the fix for the first issue, but I suggest using a regular Candle chart instead of a tick chart for now.

Jerry did you ever hear anything back from GDAX/Coinbase or Gemini exchanges? The reason is Bitfinex data is different from Gemini and Gdax which are the main Crypto US exchanges. The prices on Bitfinex differ from these so its like looking at lagged data.

Support for GDAX quotes was added in the last beta release.

 

As opposed to Bitfinex and Poloniex (which don't require login for data), for GDAX you have to enter your account login/pwd to get data.

This is fantastic. Is there any way to get more than 2 days of intraday data? My system works off 5-10 days

unfortunately, all these crypto currency sites have VERY limited amount of data available for backfill.  However, MT stores the data so for example if you backfill 2 days today, tomorrow you will have 3, and so on.

if you have quotes coming in on the symbol in the portfolio, then having the chart up doesn't matter.  Otherwise, if you open (and backfill) the chart at least once within the max period of the backfill, it also shouldn't matter. NOTE: If using GDAX, the last beta increased max backfill from 2 to 10 days. Slow as molasses, but works.

right now you do not need a subscription. After the start of the year, you would need to have a subscription for access to crypto sites.  Premium access regardless of how it was obtained would do.

GDAX and Binance for now. Others will be added if their API permits.

Working on making a Depth Chart (we like to call it Canyon Chart) in MT. Here's a sneak preview.

Hello,
Is this canyon chart ready now...
It is more difficult to use MedVed for Crypto now... 
on Binance they have a % you can buy in 25/50/75/100 it is very useful so I don't have to spend a lot of time converting the sats. and doing the math on the fly. So, for now, I don't really use MT for trading just for the scanner and charting... I would also like to request that you guys have more flexible alerts for different indicators besides price. I am more of a momentum trader and I need alerts for MFI / RSI / Volume so I can be alerted when certain levels are reached...
So, it would be GREAT if you have an MT Crypto edition so it would cater more to crypto instead of traditional stocks...

Depth Chart - once we get our heads above water. right now swamped. Hopefully next major beta.

Trading - having options to send %, etc. Yes, I know. that is really mostly crypto specific and we do not yet have that.. will be adding.

Alerts - you can do very complex alerts on anything you want. Have to use Paintbars or Scans (same code as paintbars).
