Trading FX + Crypto

I'm still on the free account, so not live trading yet, but I plan to trade both FX + Cryptos at the same time.

Was wondering if it is possible to execute a strategy that hooks up with GDAX and OANDA/IB at the same time?

 

Thanks in advance, YP

Thanks mate - though the questions were mostly surrounding having multiple algos for the same IB account (many to one) and not really one algo that trades for IB and Oanda (one to many).

Seems like no one has done this before..

I was waiting on an offical answer from the staff.

My last status was: because there is a workaround it is not possible to trade with one strategy on multiple brokers yet

BUT it is on their TODO-list.

The workaround is what you already read. That was that hint in that post which tells you how muchit will cost you to run multiple algos. (the question was asked many times, couldnt find it.)

We investigated this but found it would require massive API changes which would only benefit a small % of the community so we put it on hold. We've added the AlgorithmFramework technology recently which might make this easier.

For now the answer is no its not easily done in LEAN; but OANDA has a REST API so you can write to it there relatively easily.
