The error tells you everything you need to know: the file system has no 
path/file called "/home/io/btc_trading/markets.csv"

I imagine your CSV file lives in a different location on your Windows 7 
system (which also uses back-slashes '\' instead of forward-slashes '/', 
so you'll need to maybe do a try/except around the open() call to open a 
Windows path like open("c:\\users\\io\\Documents\\markets.csv") or 
whatever. OR you'll need to do some OS detection ahead of time to set 
the file path properly.
