Downloading OANDA CFD with API File Provider

Hi All,

I am new to Quantconnect and ran into an issue when exporting data. I am trying to bulk download 1 minute Oanda CFD data and followed this API link.  Using the API File Provider Tutorial 

The instructions provided in the video showed me how to download FOREX data. I am trying to download Oanda Historical Minute CFD data but the code(see below image) kept bringing me to the FOREX data folder.

I researched, found this code "AddCfd("JP225USD", Resolution.Minute, Market.Oanda)" and placed it in "BasicTemplate ForexAlgorithm.cs"

It now reads real-time tick data from JP225USD but my intention is to run 1 minute data for previous years  with the date/resolution.minute parameters below

public override void Initialize()
        {
            SetStartDate(2017, 11, 11);  //Set Start Date
            SetEndDate(2018, 11, 15);    //Set End Date
            SetCash(100000);             //Set Strategy Cash
            // Find more symbols here: http://quantconnect.com/data

 

have been trying for hours with no success... I really apperciate your help!!

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Not sure what the issue you're facing is.

If you're having problems downloading the data - have you already subscribed to it?

If I haven't understood your problem, do you mind explaining exactly what's not working?

Hi Elijah,

Douglas is on the right track with his response. This data is available in the QuantConnect IDE, but it needs to be purchased (subscribed to) to access via Visual Studio or anotherĀ development environment.
