How does Gekko look backwards?
Hi there,

i wonder, if and how Gekko looks backwards and could use "macro-data". 

As i understand, Gekko starts collecting candles, when it starts to trade. However, this might not make sense, given the fact, that all historical information can be imported for backtesting purposes. Wouldn't it be possible that the bot imports such information (i.e. to have a EMA-200 ready instantly)?

I would like to include the distance to all-time-high and all-time-low into account in my strategy. Furthermore, i would be interested if it is possible that Gekko, additionally to looking at the predefined candles (e.g. daily), could additionally interpret data on a monthly basis. How does Gekko store all information and would it be possible to read from an external source?
