Thank you for the information above. Are the courses on udemy?
Okay I just discovered that Oanda only provides 180 days of historical data. https://www.oanda.com/fx-for-business/historical-rates. There also seems to be a problem with the quality of data from Oanda https://mechanicalforex.com/2015/12/oandas-not-so-good-1m-data-can-you-trust-your-own-brokers-historical-data.html
If I wanted more data I would need to pay $75 per month which I find a little excessive. Is 180 days enough to build strategies?
Can I use something like this rather for historical data http://www.histdata.com/download-free-forex-data/ to create strategies from?
I just need to find another broker I think. Do you have any experience with paxforex.com? I am able to setup an account with them and they support hedging etc.
Thanks for all your help and advice.
