OHLCVT data is the API equivalent to the candlesticks that are displayed on graphical charts (such as our Kraken Terminal trading interface).
OHLCVT stands for Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, and Trades, and represents the following trading information for each time frame (such as 1 minute, 5 minute, hourly, daily, etc.):
- Open - The first traded price
- High - The highest traded price
- Low - The lowest traded price
- Close - The final traded price
- Volume - The total volume traded by all trades
- Trades - The number of individual trades
OHLCVT data for several popular intervals can be retrieved via our REST API OHLC endpoint, but there are some limitations (notably the amount of data that can be retrieved). We also provide downloadable CSV (comma separated) files containing OHLCVT data for each of our currency pairs from the beginning of each market up to the present (currently the end of Q1 2021).
(all intervals for all currency pairs)
(all intervals for each base currency)
Each Zip file contains the relevant CSV files for 1, 5, 15, 60, 720, and 1440 minute intervals, which can be viewed in a text editor, used in code, converted into other formats (such as JSON, XML, etc.), or imported into a graphical charting application.
For clients that have already downloaded the historical OHLCVT data in the past, incremental updates are provided at the end of each quarter.
