I watched the video – I see how we make the database. Do we need to do that processs to update each day or is there a smaller update file?
Thanks for your great question… as I think I mentioned in the post, you can’t practically use BNC data for live trading because it is not released in a timely manner each day. You need the data to be downloadable within minutes of the new daily bar… BNC data is only available hours later. In The Crypto Success System, you get a custom built EOD data downloader which downloads the data from various exchanges and imports it into Amibroker in a very timely manner – this is what I use for live trading. I use BNC data for backtesting and system development.
Hope that helps.
