Hope you'll like them and make good use of them. I haven't been sitting on my hands lately and have just finished a little project I've been working on. I've added 3 new pages to bfxdata.
The new pages wil give you a real-time view on bitfinex Swaps. Just check out the pages and I think it will be more or less self explanatory when you see them. If not, do let me know. Big thanks to the Bitfinex team for providing me with the swap transaction data! More or less back to normal operations. Thank you all very much for your contributions, in word and coin.
History on some charts is a bit reduced for now. I will try to resolve this. Sorry for all the hickups Back online, still a few glitches, but most works again. Thanks for all the feedback. Last night my web hosting provider decided my website uses too much resources too often My account was deleted without notfying me first, including all my data.
I've lost part of my code and part of my db damn I should've backed up more often I'll try to recover my lost data. For now I've relaunched the site, but you'll notice there will be data missing and performance will be a lot slower.
I'm in serious need of better web hosting. Just keep in mind I do this for fun. Also I did some server tuning, pages should load a bit faster now. Thanks everyone for the donations!

This is required to ensure that the symbol api predictably returns the correct asset regardless of the targeted exchange. Exchanges tend to use their own convention to represent currencies e. Trading pairs are also inconsistent. For example, Bitfinex puts the market currency before the base currency without a separator, Bittrex puts the base currency first and uses a dash seperator.
Note that the trading pairs are always referenced in the same manner. However, not all trading pairs are available on all exchanges. An error will occur if the specified trading pair is not trading on the exchange. To check which currency pairs are available on each of the supported exchanges, see Catalyst Market Coverage.
There is no special convention to follow when writing an algorithm for live trading. The same algorithm should work in backtest and live execution mode without modification.
