OIL. Let's get this asset going.
« on: December 02, 2014, 11:04:32 PM »

OIL is plunging to areas it hasn't been in awhile. I would like to get in on this action with my BTS.

Can we get a good feed. Oil is probably the most volatile asset we have and we will need possibility a mandatory limited number of feed updates per day for it to be serious.

Help alt get it working in his feed script and OIL will be a shoe-in since most delegates run that.

I would also like OIL to start trading on the market.

Oil will be interesting, at today's prices it may even stand a chance of trading at a premium to real oil, which would be a first for a bitAsset.

Could be a good BitAsset to start now. Let's not miss the OIL bus opportunity like these guys...

You're the only one pushing a feed for Oil. Can you share your source so it can be rolled into the feed scripts?

I manually did it by visiting the CME's quotes site. Hoping to spark a trend.

I am not very technical, but I wonder if this would work as I couldn't find any API pushing oil prices:

ThinkorSwims platform allows DDE to excel in real time quotes. I think you would only need to write a pyhon script that grabs the quote from the designated cell in excel and then bam, you have a real time feed. I have no idea how to write a python script for that, but it seems plausible. Right?

I think Riverhead can write the script in his sleep... but I have my doubts it is a solid way to go for ALL the delegates' feeds.

I'm sure we can find something. Surely those quote sites aren't pulling data from where the good Lord split them.

Btw futures are the best prices when oil is concerned....but it is quite messy ...constantly adjusting the nearest future and so on.
But then again spot prices are not very representative (quite arbitrary, imho).
