Currency Converter: 1 DEM to AED - Forex Market IFCM

Creating a forex converter, having problems with writing to a tempfile.

In response to the daily programmer challenge here: http://www.reddit.com/dailyprogrammecomments/pjbj8/easy_challenge_2/ I got kind of ambitious (new to this) and wanted to build a foreign exchange calculator that downloads data before running any calculations.
However, the file that is downloaded has no headers so I had a hard time parsing it. I'm trying to add headers to it by creating a temporary file, writing the headers then the rest of the content from the downloaded CSV file, then overwriting the original with the temporary file, but it's not working, and I am getting "TypeError: 'str' does not support the buffer interface"
The whole program here: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/0a050853ce4ee73cec86
The method in question is the second one, "rewrite_csv." What can I do to make this work? Been stumping me for a couple days now. Are there any good resources for learning how to use tempfile?
I'd really appreciate a bit of help.

Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted

Releasing a Decade of Forex Tick Data I Crawled and Converted

Intro:

In my exploration of the world of big data and I became curious about tick data. Unfortunately, market data is almost always behind a paywall or de-sampled to the point of uselessness. After discovering the Dukascopy API, I knew I wanted to make this data available for all in a more accessible format. Over the course of a few months, I downloaded, cleaned, parsed, and compressed over a decade of Forex tick data on 37 currency pairs and commodities. Today I am happy to finally release the final result of my work to the DataHoarder community!

Download Links:

Warning: I have rented a seedbox for the next 3 months from seedbox.io but I have been having some issues. If you have any issues with the torrent please leave a comment. Also, PLEASE SEED when you are done. This is quite a large data set and I can only push so much data on my own.
Torrent File: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18ymZWeFLJK7FggK_iiWZ-TxgWIVdJVvv/view?usp=sharingCompanion Blog Post: https://www.driftinginrecursion.com/post/dukascopy_opensource_data/

Stats Overview:

Totals Quantities
Total Files 463
Total Line Count 8,495,770,706
Total Data Points 33,983,082,824
Total Decompressed Size 501 GB
Total Compressed Size 61 GB

About the Data:

The data was collected from https://www.dukascopy.com/ via a public API that allows for the download of tick data on the hour level. These files come in the form of a .bi5 file. The data starts as early as 2004 all the way to 2019.
These files were decompressed, then merged into yearly CSV’s named in the following convention. “AUDCHF_tick_UTC+0_00_2011.csv” or ‘Pair_Resolution_Timezone_Year.csv’
These CSV’s are split into 3 categories “Majors”, “Crosses”, “Commodities”.
Majors, Crosses, and Commodities have had their timestamps modified so that they are in the official UTC ISO standard. This was originally done for a Postgresql database that quickly became obsolesced. Any files that have been modified are appended with a “-Parse”. These timestamps have been modified in the following format.
Millisecond timestamps to UTC +00:00 time [2017.01.01 22:37:08.014] -- [2017-01-01T22:37:08.014+00:00]

User Resources:

For those looking to use this data in a live context or update it frequently, I have included a number of tools for both Windows and Linux that will be useful.

Windows

The ~/dukascopy/resources/windows folder contains a third party tool written in java that can download and convert Dukascopy’s .bi5 files. I have also included the latest zstd binaries from Zstandard Github page.

Linux

Linux is my daily driver in 99% of cases, so I have developed all my scraping tools using Linux only tools. In the ~/dukascopy/resources/linux folder you will find a number of shell script and pyhton3 files that I used to collect this data. There are quite a few files in this directory but I will cover the core ones below.

download-day.py:

This file is used to download a single symbol for a single day and then convert and merge all 24 .bi5 files into a single CSV.

download-year.py

This file is used to download a single symbol for a full year and then convert and merge all .bi5 files into a single CSV.

dukascopy.py

This file contains all the core logic for downloading and converting data from dukascopy.

utc-timestamp-convert.py

This tad slow but works well enough. It requires the pandas project and parses timestamps into the UTC ISO standard. This is useful for those looking to maintain the format of new files with the those in this repo, or those looking to use this in a SQL database.

Unathi Kwaza RT from Marco: @Unathi_Kwaza Same banks have done it 20 times over again but more sophisticated. It’s banking and called making a profit on forex conversion. Just because the ANC lost money does not mean the system is corrupt. It means it costs money to convert ZAR into US dollars!

I am just beginning to get into Forex and I have a question. If I make a profit in Japanese Yens and it gets deposited into my bank account that has US Dollars, do the Yens get automatically converted into Dollars or do I have to manually do it myself?

How to convert a FOREX cheque in Sydney?

Any finance gurus have any experience is dealing stuff like this? Is there a a quickecheaper way of sorting this out?

[FOREX] Why can't I take my USD, convert it, and invest it in a foreign savings account?

Somethings bugging me and I'm sure there's something wrong in my thinking here but:
With the greenback at parity for the AUD and savings at "standard variable rate of currently 3.75% p.a. AUD"
What stops someone from investing their USD in an AUD account to garner $X-%transactionfee+AUinterest? Arbitrage?
I understand that FOREX rate is decided (partly?) by the difference in interest rates but when two countries are at parity is it only the transaction fees that stops it?
