Why aren't the Delegates Posting bitOIL/WTI feeds?
« on: January 21, 2015, 07:29:43 PM »

I really want to buy a Bitshares oil derivative to profit from the low crude price.  Is there a technical or strategic reason only two feeds are being broadcast?

There are no free, real-time sources of data for the feed.

So lame.  Why can't the bloomberg ticker be ripped off by a script to at least provide market exposure?

I believe there is a 15 min delay on most free feeds.

That would be fine for a price feed. I think the real answer is that we're lazy.
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

IMO the important question is - Do these "free" feeds allow re-publishing?

even if we don't have real time feeds we should publish what we have...  only day traders would not use our OIL market...  the most are not...

we are not obligated to give our sources...  and how would they know we are using their data if we make the price feed inputs manually... (like I do  :P  )




edit:
PS  not to mention when delegates make manually the price feeds input, it's easy to find the real time data and use them... ;)

The real question is: who would short oil at today's prices? If/when we finally do get oil going, there's a good chance it will trade above the peg.

There are OIL feeds we can use via metatrader brokers... these feeds can be fed to excel and then from there to any API or can use mt4/mt5 mql api to write out to a CSV file... many brokers offer oil CFD and its free to get the feed.

has anybody mentioned shorting?
I assume many want to buy bitOIL now or at least in the near future ...  from a decentralized exchange like us, with minimum fees, security etc.


edit:
Now I get your point, somebody must short so they come into existence... ;)
I think at any point of time... somebody want to bet to the opposite side...
and don't forget traders that follow the trend and don't change their minds if they don't have indications that it will be reversed!

provide an updated script that include BitOIL for delegate to use?
