I'm interested in analysing market prices on the cryptocurrency exchange Bittrex (www.bittrex.com). This job is split into two parts.
The first part involves collecting a sample of data for me to analyse. The second part is creating a program that constantly analyses the last x orders (i.e. 200 or last 10 minutes etc.) of each currency and running calculations on that data. If certain conditions are met, an email notification is sent.
For my sample, I would like to collect the 5 columns of data in the attachment for a week. I'm not sure if the historic data is stored but my understanding is that it only stores the last 200 orders so in order to collect, say 5 days of data, you would need to run a program that scrapes the data for 5 days. If the historic data was saved, it would be easier obviously.
So, for Part 1, I would like to scrape the data for a few days on one currency. I can then analyse it and we can proceed to step 2.
I would prefer if Python was used as the developers guide for connecting to the API refers to Python. Here is the link to the guide
Part 2 is involves creating a program that analyses the last x number of orders. This could be the last 10 minutes of orders or the last 200 orders. The data would not be saved (as this is not the purpose). Instead, calculations would be performed on the data covering the last 200 orders and if certain conditions are met, a notification would be sent. The purpose of this is to determine turning points i.e. when the price is moving sharply in either direction. For example, if there was a significant increase in volume or a sharp change in the price, this might trigger a notification.
Once created, the program will run on a VPN i.e. a virtual private network 24/7.
I've worked with a number of developers on Upwork and attention to detail is very important. I would like step one completed quickly as I'm keen to analyse the data and proceed with step 2. The conditions won't be overly complicated. I'll provide a spreadsheet clearly detailing how I want step 2 to operate.
