TradingView automated trading

TradingView automated trading

TradingView can be more than a tool to watch prices. You can also use it to send alerts to OctoBot cloud and have your OctoBot to instantly buy or sell according to your targets whenever your condition is met on TradingView.

When using a TradingView OctoBot, each TradingView alert can trigger an action that we call automation.

Automations to create your strategies

An Automation is an action such as “buying” “selling”, or “cancelling an order” that you can configure directly on your TradingView OctoBot. Each OctoBot has its own set of automations that you can create and use at will.

Using automations, you can create any type of trading strategy.

Automations can be configured the way you want and you can have as many automations as necessary.

Each automation as its own identifier to set on your TradingView alert message: this allows your OctoBot to know what to do when a TradingView alert is received.

When your OctoBot receives an alert from TradingView, the associated automation is triggered and its result is displayed. Each OctoBot also has a complete history of its automations and their execution result.

Sutomations include buying and selling:

  • Any crypto
  • On any supported exchange
  • Using market or limit orders
  • At a predefined price or a % difference from the market price of the traded coin
  • With a percent of your portfolio holdings or a fixed amount denominated in the traded asset or the quote currency (in BTC or USDT for BTC/USDT).

Automations are perfect for investors who want to carefully optimize their buy and sell orders as well as each traded amount, which is especially useful when trading multiple coins within the same strategy.

Unlimited strategies

When you use TradingView OctoBots, there are no usage limits. This is our unique approach on TradingView automations.

Unlike other TradingView automation systems, we did not design the OctoBot TradingView bots around limits in how many alerts you can receive per month, how many bots you can create or exchanges you can connect to. With OctoBot cloud, you can:

  • Create and trigger as many automations as necessary
  • Use as many bots as you want
  • Connect to all the exchanges and accounts you need

We think that allowing you to make the strategies you want is what a TradingView bot should do. We don’t want you to be wondering if you need to take the paid plan A or B to automate your strategy because you are affraid that too many alerts will be sent from TradingView and your plan limit would be reached. This is an important issue because it can lead to extra charges or worse, your bot could be stuck in open position and not apply your alerts. This can’t happen with OctoBot.

This is why our pricing offers types of automations and even the cheapest plan is unlimited:

  • Plans offer advanced types of automations
  • Available automations are unlimited
