So a few months ago I wrote a crypto trading platform in c# that traded eth and BTC on coinbase pro. I focused mostly on the etl/database/order execution logic and not so much the actually strategy (I am a career software dev after all). I didn’t do any real back testing on my actual trading (Strategy was basically a mean reversion), but I ended up breaking even after ~3 months trading with a small amount of cash.
I chose crypto due to the low barrier to entry, but I’d really like to run a strategy on some index funds, so I want to development a low budget index fund platform.
I found several unofficial Robinhood apis available on github. Can anyone here recommend me a good one?
As for data sourcing, I am hearing alphavantage is a good free provider. Ideally I’d like to have a few years worth of historic data at hand, as well real time hourly updates. Even daily data will suffice, but hourly would be ideal.
Any advice is very much appreciated
