Alpaca Trading within TradingView

Using data to trade on TradingView

Nothing goes better with algorithmic trading than tons of data. That's why we're delighted to announce our integration with TradingView to give you deep insights into markets, stocks, etc, all while seamlessly using Alpaca's commission-free API trading platform.

Alpaca + TradingView: Commission-free trading using TradingView charts
Alpaca is a modern platform for trading. Alpaca’s API is the interface for your trading algorithms, bots, or applications to communicate with Alpaca’s brokerage and other services.

Want to know exactly how? We've got you covered.

What you'll need to get started:

An Alpaca account (make one here!)

A TradingView account (make one here by clicking "join for free")

Once you're logged into both accounts, open a chart in TradingView (via the "Chart" tab).

When you're looking at a chart, there will be a menu bar below it. On the far right is the option "Trading Panel"—select that one.

Oodles of options will appear in the Trading Panel—select Alpaca to continue with your Alpaca trading account! It'll open into a "continue" and, subsequently, an authorization modal.

Once you have your Alpaca account set up and authorized you will be able to start trading from TradingView! Where you saw "Trading Panel" before, you should now see "Alpaca". Click on it, and view insights like your current positions, orders, history and notifications. On the right side of the page a trading modal will be available to execute on trades.

Have fun, and good luck out there!
