Im developing an EA and have been sending about 20 WebRequest to myfxbook's https://www.myfxbook.com/api/get-community-outlook.json.

I now get the message ' Too many request, please try again later'.

I cannot find any information about a limit in number of requests.
Does anybody know if there is any limit and what the limit is?

Yes, Myfxbook Outlook doesn't change every single seconds.
You must understand what kind of information you wanna grab and what is the value to refresh data evry single ticks???
Once per minute is way enough.

Thanks for responding.

I know the outlook isn't changing fast and when Im done with the code I will probably not do more then 4 requests an hour.
I will probably limit my request's to the creation of a new M15 bar or higher TF and write to file.

I just started wondering if I would get the errormessage when Im done and I would not get any data, just the errormesage.
They might want to describe this errormessage in the documentation for the API.

Its just a hassle to develop when I only can do 5-6 requests and then Im blocked for an hour.

I’ve found out that the api is a crap
