Secure, private, and scalable

Most platforms are a hodgepodge of code from various code libraries and scripts that creates unstable platforms and leave you vulnerable. At Option Alpha, we took a different approach and spent five years building the entire platform and network from the ground up with an in-house team.

We wrote every single line of code that runs automated trading which means we control the full software stack from top to bottom. It's this level of commitment you won't find anywhere else. Plus, we also...
  • Operate a web-based platform in the cloud, is hosted by AWS, and monitored by our team inside our VPC.
  • Require the highest level of TLS browser encryption and broker dictated security protocols such as OAuth API access to secure your trades.
  • Send all requests originating from bots via point-to-point access from our US-based servers directly to your broker.
  • Provide continuous, high-quality software deployment from our DevOps team who all are also traders themselves.
  • Place multi-tiered WAFs, web application firewalls, in front of all web traffic to protects against malicious hack attempts.
  • Use reverse proxying to scalable web server instances to create the fastest platform possible for our traders.

It's wonderful Option Alpha provided us with the tools to help us trade without emotion and to help us get in touch with reality, but the best part may be that they've assembled a community of really smart people enthusiastic about sharing ideas and solving problems.

I am looking forward to learning more about creating bots to implement more plan-based strategies to minimize mistakes stemming from emotional reactions or thinking errors.

I've been options trading for a few years now, and after some initial mistakes I joined Option Alpha first as a free user and then very quickly ramped up to become an Elite user. I'm excited to see the progress towards the bot automation and am impressed even though I am only a little way through the tutorial videos.

I have dabbled in Level II stuff over the years. Once I discovered the Bots on Option Alpha it was time to go all in.
