Using Gekko for forex trading - Peter123 - 12-17-2018

Hello,

since you can write your own API's for diffrent exchanges, I wondered if it would be possible to trade fiat currencys.

Would this be technicly possible? 
What is about trading with margin? Can Gekko do this?

Yes it would be! As long as the fx broker has an API it should be possible.

I have played with Gekko with cryptos (thanks for all the job done on this incredible tool !) and i am now interested in using Gekko for Forex data.
I encounter difficulties with non continuous data set (imported from CSV archives).
Indeed, at the difference of cryptos where the markets run wihtout interruption, the forex marketplaces have day off each week (for the week-end). 

Gekko doesn't want gaps in the data.
How can i deal with it ? Is there a mean to configure Gekko to consider the data as a whole and unique set of candles regardless of non continuous candle start dates ?
In other word a mean for Gekko to simply ignore the gaps of the saturday missing. 

Thanks in advance for any help.
