I've succesfully implemented ccxtbt to backtrader and can trade live on Binance. However there are some things unclear to me:
Looking at de debug output I can see ccxtbt is continously fetching the newest ohlcv ticks, multiple times per second.
Using bt.Timeframe.Minutes my next() is only called once per minute. However I want my next() to be called every new tick. When I apply the bt.Timeframe.Ticks as supported by Backtrader, I get the following error:
ValueError: backtrader CCXT module doesn't support fetching OHLCV data for time frame Tick, comression 1
Is this correct? Is there no way for me to get the individual tick price live, and feed it to my next() ?
I am using ccxtbt from: https://github.com/Dave-Vallance/bt-ccxt-store
Where do you specify the frequency of fetching the data?

Apologies for being a bit overwhelmed on where to start.
I'm planning to trade Futures in Binance using Multiple Cryptocurrencies with One base currency (USDT most likely) in one Backtrader Strategy.
I've honestly have not gone through all replies in this thread but maybe it wouldn't hurt to ask where it is best to start for my use case. Any reference closest to my use case?
