API Documentation for Programmers
Wall Street Birds API Home
API is an abbreviation for application programming interface, which is a set of routines, protocols and tools designed to help programmers build software applications.
The Wall Street Birds API makes it possible to develop trading programs by providing all the building blocks. A programmer can put the blocks together to create a custom trading application, which can then be used in a professional setting.
The API can be used for anything from personal trading to advanced high frequency trading. This is possible because the system operates in real-time. Signals are generated only a few milliseconds after the prices are updated at the stock exchange.
Your custom program may be used to place discretionary trades, to trade automatically (automated trading) or your broker may use the program to manage your account on your behalf.
Note that if you are not a programmer, but would like help with building a custom trading application, we may be able to help you.
Access to this API requires a
API membership. Use of the API is governed by the Wall
Street Birds Pro API license agreement.
