I use it for manual trading, and the quality of the data is excellent. Better than any other site I've seen
Possible to scrape it if you pay the sub, but given the warnings on the site you'll risk being blocked if you do. Though I couldn't say if they monitor that or not. Your risk.
stu -i presume(?!) that TP has an under the covers api at play also?? One thing I've discovered from my dayjob on this is that not all front end and backend systems are authenticated together, so you can find that you are able to obtain the api data endpoints when logged in, but then logoff and STILL use those same api endpoints that would not have been visible without the login. at least 3 of the major streaming platforms present this opportunity as we speak.
That's interesting Jim, I always assumed that a paid for front end meant the same authenticated back end. Given it's a small, bespoke site that's geared up for manual trading, I'd guess no API - I've not really looked.
Brova - if you are interested it may be worth asking Paul Shires who is Tradeshark, and the main guy at TP, if he has an API. To give him credit, Paul is one of the few subscription traders I've come across who gives decent information and data that's worth paying for. Even for manual trading TP it's well worth the sub.
Ye thats not a bad idea Sniffer. I will have to subscribe to TP first to get a feel for his product, but if its as good as what I am hearing might well be worth it
. Trying to keep costs down at the min, hence the scrapping
, and at a bit of a cross roads atm with pre-off, in-play, and tennis trading, so just chipping away at each until I make a final decision where to focus my time/energy.
In one of your threads, the football one I think, you mention about 'history lists', and I've seen ShaunWhite talk about them in the automation section, to build your own practice mode for back testing ideas. How do you add data to history lists, and can it be done in the background while trading manually day to day?
