How can I access the "live" price?

The smallest timeframe available in Jesse is 1 minute. There are multiple reasons for that.

  • Finer historical price data aren't (easily) available. Historical (free) APIs for crypto prices normally offer 1m as the smallest timeframe.
  • The database size would grow a lot using finer data. (That's the reasons those finer data are often premium)
  • The only reason to have finer data would be high-frequency trading or orderbook strategies which Jesse currently isn't suited for.

So is there a live price? Not really, it's always an aggregate price for the reasons above.
