I want to test out a few trading ideas for bitcoin. It seems to work on a small time horizon, and I'd like to backtest the past year or so of MtGox data. Is there a service that provides this? If not, is there a place I can buy the historical data dump?
It looks like there are several projects around getting mtgox historical data out.
Nitrous' MtGox Trades Tool: This one seems to be the most useful to my needs. You get a dump, and can manipulate the data to create candles for backtesting. https://bitbucket.org/nitrous/bq
If you are more into Quantopian, there is a way to use weighted daily pricing data already imported: https://www.quantopian.com/posts/anyway-to-import-bitcoin-data
