    (Datafeed) Oanda Currency Exchange Rates

    Anyone uses Oanda as a webservice for your system exchange rates?

    I need them to supply me with the XML specification of their feed, so I can build a proxy on my end and enable their service as a supported service on our application. Our customers will then be able to subscribe to Oanda's feed if they so wish, knowing our application supports it.

    I've sent two emails already with absolutely no response from Oanda on this matter. They either (for some strange reason) do not want to divulge the XML specification, or simply don't care.

    Anyone ever managed to get something from these folks? Or has it been like this with you too?

    Couldn't you just reverse the schema based on the XML? (Asking the obvious question; because my experience with XML is limited.)

    A quick search for Oanda xml brings up OANDA Exchange Rate Data in XML. Have you tried that?

    Yeah. I've seen that.

    Problem is it's only a partial demonstration of what to expect. In fact, if it's anything like what it was with XE.Com, it's not even the same as the actual feed. It'd like to trust what they show, but I can't. It's also missing the request format as well as the header section (if any) that usually includes information about the subscription. I don't even know for sure that the date element in that sample refers to the request or the last update to the exchange rate, or what NPrices means.
