- Use v20 REST API only if you have a v20 account
- Use v1 REST API if your account id contains only digits (ie. 2534253) as it is a legacy account
The OANDA v20 REST API provides programmatic access to OANDA’s next generation v20 trading engine. To use this API you must have a v20 trading account, which is available to all divisions except Japan.
Get REST API access - Log in to the Account Management Portal (AMP) on fxTrade and select “Manage API Access” under “Other Actions”. Generate your personal access token immediately after you agree to the API license. This token is valid for both the legacy OANDA API and the OANDA v20 API.
