Arguments

instrument

string containing the base currency and quote currency delimited by '_' or '-' (e.g. "USD_JPY" or "usd-jpy"). Use the oanda_instruments function to return a list of all valid instruments.

granularity

[default "D"] the granularity of the price data to fetch, one of "M", "W", "D", "H12", "H8", "H6", "H4", "H3", "H2", "H1", "M30", "M15", "M10", "M5", "M4", "M2", "M1", "S30", "S15", "S10", "S5".

refresh

[default 5] data refresh interval in seconds, with a minimum of 1.

count

[default 250] the number of periods to return. The API supports a maximum of 5000. Note that fewer periods are actually shown on the chart to ensure a full cloud is always displayed.

price

[default "M"] pricing component, one of "M" (midpoint), "B" (bid) or "A" (ask).

theme

[default 'original'] chart theme with alternative choices of 'dark', 'solarized' or 'mono'.

server

(optional) specify the "practice" or "live" server according to the account type held. If not specified, will default to "practice", unless this has been changed by oanda_switch.

apikey

(optional) string containing the OANDA fxTrade API key (personal access token), or function that returns this string. Does not need to be specified if already stored by oanda_set_key(). Can also be entered interactively if not specified.

...

additional arguments passed along to ichimoku for calculating the ichimoku cloud or autoplot to set chart parameters.

periods

[default c(9L, 26L, 52L)] a vector defining the length of periods used for the cloud. This parameter shoud not normally be modified as using other values would be invalid in the context of traditional ichimoku analysis.

Value

The ichimoku object underlying the chart (invisibly) on function exit. A plot of the ichimoku chart for the price data requested is output to the graphical device at each refresh interval.

Details

This function polls the OANDA fxTrade API for the latest live prices and updates the plot in the graphical device at each refresh interval. Use the 'Esc' key to stop updating.

To access the underlying data, assign the function to an object, for example: cloud <- oanda_chart("USD_JPY").

Examples

if (FALSE) { # OANDA fxTrade API key required to run these examples oanda_chart("USD_JPY") oanda_chart("EUR_JPY", granularity = "H1", refresh = 3, count = 300, price = "B", theme = "mono") # Save data underlying chart at time of function exit cloud <- oanda_chart("USD_JPY") }
