[PLUS] How to Use FTX API with Python: Full Working Code

FTX Exchange is quite popular and we have received many requests for Python code examples. In this article, we are going to walk through the code to pull any specific historical time period and for any symbol chosen. Also, we build in the flexibility to choose the time period granularity (minute, hour, or daily) and then write our results to a CSV file. All of our code is extensively documented line by line so you know exactly what is going on! The code leverages a variety of Python data structures and libraries to make our job as simple as possible. The Python code is ready to run right away on Python versions 3.4+

Some of the functions and steps involved include:
(1) Converting timestamps to Unix timestamps
(2) Using the requests library to access the API endpoint
(3) Loading the FTX API's JSON response to a Pandas Dataframe
(4) Looping over a given timeperiod repeating steps 2 & 3 for user given date range
(5) Save the resulting file to a CSV file
