Support for Oanda-V20 API in backtrader

This integration is still under development and may have some issues, use it for live trading at your own risk!

What is it

btoandav20 is a package to integrate OANDA into backtrader. It uses the v20 API of OANDA. It can be used with demo or live account. We highly recommend to have a specific account to use backtrader with OANDA. You should not trade manually on the same account if you wish to use backtrader.

It includes all necessary utilities to backtest or do live trading:

  • Store

Available features:

  • Replay functionality for backtesting

  • Replace pending orders

  • Possibility to load existing positions from the OANDA account

  • Reconnects on broken connections and after timeouts, also backfills data after a timeout or disconnect occurred

  • Support different type of orders:

    • Order.Market
    • Order.Limit
    • Order.Stop
    • Order.StopTrail (by using brackets)
    • Bracket orders are supported by using the takeprofit and stoploss order members and creating internally simulated orders.
  • 4 different OandaV20 Sizers:

    • OandaV20PercentSizer - returns position size which matches the percent amount of total cash
    • OandaV20CashSizer - return position size which matches the cash amount

    • OandaV20BacktestRiskCashSizer - returns position size which matches the total risk in percent of total amount (max pips)

Order Types

btoandav20 supports Market, Limit and Stop orders. Other order types, like StopTrail need to be created using brackets.

StopTrail order

orderexec: bt.Order.Stop

stopexec: bt.Order.StopTrail

Changing StopTrail order

To change a StopTrail order the stopside or takeside needs to be canceled and a new order with the order type StopTrail needs to be created.

Also an oref of the original order needs to be provided, when creating this order. The order needs to go into the opposing direction.

StopTrail example:

Provide the stoptrail in stopargs with trailamount or trailpercent

  • o, ostop, olimit = buy_bracket(exectype=bt.Order.Stop, stopexec=bt.Order.StopTrail, stopargs={"trailamount": xxx or "trailpercent": yyy} limitexec=None)

Create new trailing stop for parent order

  • self.sell(exectype=bt.Order.StopTrail, trailamount=xxx or trailpercent=yyy, replace=ostop.ref)
