Hey Joel. Very good guide.

For OANDA, you might want to let people know the code needs to be slightly different if you have a new account.


  • Use v20 REST API only if you have a v20 account
  • Use v1 REST API if your account id contains only digits (ie. 2534253) as it is a legacy account

Using V20 it looks something like:

url = “https://” + domain + “/v3/accounts/” + account_id + “/pricing/stream”
 headers = {‘Authorization’ : ‘Bearer ‘ + access_token,
 # ‘X-Accept-Datetime-Format’ : ‘unix’
 params = {‘instruments’ : instruments}
