Algorithmic Traders

Stop wasting time coding and start backtesting ideas, building custom bots, and automating your portfolio all without code.

The old "complicated" way

As an algo trader, your time is consumed sourcing data, authenticating connections, managing infrastructure, and debugging code.
Managing and streaming a market data sources is often a nightmare and time-consuming.
Complex cryptographic process management and renewal of OAuth keys is a pain.
Maintaining hardware and network infrastructure demands leaves your security vulnerable.
Strategy testing and code mapping is tedious and an inefficient use of your time and skills.

The new "automated" way

With automation, your time is freed from writing code and managing data sources so you can re-focus on actually trading.
Live data feeds are monitored and managed for you by Option Alpha.
One-click broker connection gets you securely up and running fast.
US-based servers with TLS browser encryption plus OAuth API access secure your trades.
Built-in automation testing allows you to see your logic at work and verify everything.

Oliver
I've been trading for over 40 years, and realize there are a lot of trading styles besides the ones I feel most comfortable with. With bots, I think I can manage to try more things without increasing the time necessary to execute and manage trades.
Ron
All of my bots, which are not many, and designed by others and tweaked by me are all doing their bot jobs.

I'm so impressed with SmartStops, testing within the automation and the 'Opportunity is Available' recipe. I'm working on a Debit Spread Strategy right now and these are ALL relevant and coming in handy. I'm literally chuckling and grinning as I read these release notes because of how cool these new features will be.

This platform is going to change the game. Layers of abstraction are what innovation provides and that's exactly what the investing world needs. I don't have bandwidth to sit on TOS trying new things all day. This platform will allow me to participate in markets in a more automated way.
