Algorithm Example

class CoinAPIDataAlgorithm(QCAlgorithm):

    def Initialize(self) -> None:
        self.SetStartDate(2020, 6, 1)
        self.SetEndDate(2021, 6, 1)
        self.SetCash(100000)

        self.SetBrokerageModel(BrokerageName.Bitfinex, AccountType.Margin)

        # Warm up the security with the last known price to avoid conversion error
        self.SetSecurityInitializer(lambda security: security.SetMarketPrice(self.GetLastKnownPrice(security)))
        
        # Requesting data
        crypto = self.AddCrypto("BTCUSD", Resolution.Minute, Market.Bitfinex)
        self.btcusd = crypto.Symbol
        self.minimum_order_size = crypto.SymbolProperties.MinimumOrderSize
        
        # Historical data
        history = self.History(self.btcusd, 30, Resolution.Daily)
        self.Debug(f"We got {len(history)} items from our history request")

        # Add Crypto Coarse Fundamental Universe Selection
        self.AddUniverse(CryptoCoarseFundamentalUniverse(Market.Bitfinex, self.UniverseSettings, self.UniverseSelectionFilter))

    def UniverseSelectionFilter(self, crypto_coarse: List[CryptoCoarseFundamental]) -> List[Symbol]:
        return [datum.Symbol for datum in crypto_coarse
                if datum.Volume >= 100 
                and datum.VolumeInUsd > 10000]

    def OnData(self, slice: Slice) -> None:
        if self.Portfolio.CashBook['BTC'].Amount == 0:
            free_cash = self.Portfolio.CashBook['USD'].Amount * (1-self.Settings.FreePortfolioValuePercentage)
            quantity = free_cash / slice[self.btcusd].Price
            quantity -= quantity % self.minimum_order_size
            if quantity > 0:
                self.MarketOrder(self.btcusd, quantity)
