Tool for downloading cryptocurrency OHLCV data for backtesting
Hi backtrader user,
I have been using Backtrader to backtest trading strategies on cryptocurrency data. Along the way, I have developed a simple tool to help download candlestick data from major exchanges, e.g. Binance, Bitfinex, Bitstamp, etc. Sometimes, candlestick data vary slightly from exchanges to exchanges and it is generally useful to have an idea of how our trading strategy will perform in the face of small variations in input. With this tool, we can download OHLCV data of different timeframes for our favourite coins (BTC, ETH, LINK, you name it. ) from major exchanges during specific timespans in history.
Feel free to take a look in my repository below. Hope it will be helpful for successful backtesting. Cheers.
