Bitfinex announces more instruments for Honey Framework

Posted 25 October, 2018

Bitfinex has released new instruments under its new Honey Framework. This time, this is a set of libraries for testing and trading strategy implementation.

"As part of the Honey Framework, today we are releasing a new set of open source libraries that together provide a full trading strategy & backtesting framework: bfx-hf-strategy, bfx-hf-backtest, and bfx-hf-data-server," stated the company in the social network.

According to the press release, bfx-hf-strategy, bfx-hf-backtest and bfx-hf-data-server will enable customers to develop their own trade strategies based on the market fluctuations and apply to them bfx-hf-indicators. All strategies can be tested with  bfx-hf-backtest using "historical data, and the Bitfinex APIs for executing on the live markets."

It is worth mentioning that this is just Alpha so far, which means that the libraries can be changed dramatically in the future. However, Bitfinex believes these instruments are stable enough and may be offered to skilled users already now.

With the previously released instruments, the libraries represent a complete set of automated trading solution Honey Framework. As the company commented, the documentation for each library will be posted on the website soon.

Notably, Bitfinex is opened for cooperation with users, so the latter can post comments or suggestions on the corresponding projects Github threads.
