Golang : A simple forex opportunities scanner



Tags : rsigolangoandaforex fx scanner

Below is a simple program that will scan for trading opportunities. Basically what this program does is to calculate a given cross(instrument) 1 hour RSI value and display the result on screen.

What this program does is to help me in focusing on crosses that have good trading potential. Kinda like those instruments found in a cockpit, this is just one of a "trading instruments" that I use to sniff for opportunities.

Disclaimer : It is not meant for a fully automated trading bot but rather for my own viewing. Use it at your own risk!!

Here you go!
