Forex Week Day Prices

Hello,

Is there a way to view the current day of the week or skip it? My goal is to skip Sunday prices since Oanda does not present them in their charts, and work with patterns that I trade using their charts.

Thank you for your help!

Hi Leandro,

You can access the day of week through self.Time.weekday(). I haven't checked myself but I think this should work. See python docs. You can then choose to not act on this day by simply returning out of the self.OnData() call.

P.S. OANDA does display Sunday prices in their chart for assets that trade on a Sunday (such as forex), at least on the hourly and lower resolutions.
