API stands for Application Programming Interface (API). Algomojo offers http-rest API and it basically a communication layer to Authenticate/transmit/receive information from your broker server and can be used to submit orders/cancel orders/modify orders to the broker’s server programmatically.

Is the Web-Based Bridge Slower than the Exe Based Bridge?

Nope. Both use Rest API as a communication layer to transmit or receive information from the broker server. The latency of execution mostly depends upon the client’s internet speed and Brokers’ server responsiveness. In another article will look into this information in detail. However, it is a myth that Web-Based Bridge is slower compared to Exe based Bridge. In-fact web-based bridge has more ease of use and no up-gradation/installation/maintenance is required from the client’s side.

    1. Yes, Algomojo supports tradingview webhook feature. however one needs to be a tradingview pro user. Webhook feature is not available in free plan.
      Minimum of Tradingview Pro plan is required to send automated orders from Tradingview to Algomojo platform.

  1. What are the requirements a algo trader need to know before kickstarting with algomojo platform. Im a begineer in trading but like to do algotrading. Need you guidance.

    1. Here are the following inputs an algotrader needs to know.

      1)Knowing better about your trading software from which you are generating signal. Knowledge on backtesting your signals is very important and better knowledge about the nature of the trading system and risk controlling mechanism in your trading system.
      2)Better datafeed connecitivty (authentic data vendors)
      3)Better Trading Infrastructure (Good Internet connection and Good Power Backup)

    1. There are two ways one can do the check their logs
      1)Using Trace Function or External Debugger to record the orders that are sent via Amibroker
      2)Using Algomojo Order Log Feature which captures only Automated Orders.

      If you are using Tradingview then Alert log feature captures the all the alerts that sent via Tradingview Webhook Alerts

  2. When we can expect paper trading in algomojo. which is mostly required to test drive the trading straegy before taking live. I guess algomojo still missing this feature.
