About the TradeStation API
The TradeStation API is a collection of RESTful brokerage and market data services that can be used to build trading applications. TradeStation's mobile and web applications leverage the same APIs. Using our robust API, you can create a custom online trading experience, tailored to your unique tools and workflow.
Benefits of the TradeStation API
Imagine bringing your trading program to life, boosted by a full-powered trading platform. Whether you’re an independent trader, small development company or financial institution, you’ll be in the driver’s seat. Our API exposes a broad range of services that you can use to build your own interactive trading application.
The TradeStation API supports stocks, options, futures, and crypto trading – conveniently providing access to multiple markets under the same interface. Your trading application can integrate trade functionality into a signal-based system, scan for new ideas or just simply analyze account performance. Once you plug in your program and trading ideas, you’ll receive lightning-fast access to the financial data you need for your core app.
