Data integrity

— Last updated: 23 Sep 2019 12:13 PM (GMT) —

What is this page?

This section presents the most updated quality tests for our cryptocurrency bar generator engine. Additionally, it summarizes the different types of bars and steps offered (each step has a different meaning depending on the bar type. More info in the API docs) .

When data is updated by pulling raw trades from the exchanges (for now only Bitfinex), bars are automatically built and data quality is evaluated based on volume conservation. Essentially, we check that the sum of all trades volume is equal to the sum of all bars volume. If the difference observed is low, then we have a guarantee that the bars have been built correctly and have included all the existing trades provided by the exchange, no more and no less. However, note that small errors can be observed due to floating point operations.

We set our error tolerance to 0.01 — any error higher than this threshold should raise our concern and the affected bars should be revised and possibly regenerated from scratch using the raw trade data.
