What is the TradeStation WebAPI?
TradeStation’s WebAPI is a portal for integrating third-party trading applications to access real-time and historical market data, fast order-execution capabilities, and account and position information. It also allows your trading application or device to run independently from the TradeStation platform while still taking advantage of a wealth of information.
Because of its flexibility and simplicity, the TradeStation WebAPI is an ideal solution for lightweight applications and enables third-party partners to create dynamic web, mobile or stand-alone trading applications. As a collection of RESTful web services, the API allows integration using a variety of programming languages such as C#, C++, Python, PHP, Ruby or any language that can access the Internet.
Whether you are an independent developer, small development company or financial institution, the TradeStation WebAPI allows for a broad range of integration. When you plug into it, you can be confident that you will get immediate access to the financial data you need in a convenient data format, so you can spend your precious time working on your core app.
The TradeStation WebAPI supports multiple assets: equities, options, futures and forex. It is an ideal solution for your trading application if you are looking to integrate trade functionality into a signal-based system, scan for opportunities in a wide range of markets or just analyze account performance. Best of all, TradeStation users can feel confident that their information is securely accessed by approved trading applications. What’s your trading idea?
