oanda_positions(instrument, time, server, apikey)



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.


(optional) the time for which to retrieve the position book, in a format convertible to POSIXct by as.POSIXct(). If not specified, the most recent position book will be retrieved.


(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.


(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 as the environment variable OANDA_API_KEY or by oanda_set_key. Can also be entered interactively if not specified.


Invisibly, a data frame of the position book with parameters saved as attributes. A chart showing the percentage long and short positions at each price level is output to the graphical device.


This feature has been implemented by OANDA only for certain major currency pairs and should be considered experimental.
