Tradetron API Integration: Enhancing Your Trading Arsenal

Tradetron, a SaaS-based application, has dramatically simplified automated trading. It lets you craft strategies, test them, and then execute live trades through your broker’s interface. But what if you’ve been algorithmic trading with tools like Amibroker, TradingView, or Python? The good news is, with Tradetron API Integration, you can harness your existing strategies on the Tradetron platform for enhanced automation.

Understanding Tradetron APIs

Tradetron’s API interface is refreshingly straightforward. Each strategy you create gets an API OAuth token, allowing programmatic access from third-party applications like Amibroker. You can easily generate this token from the strategies page.



Here’s how a typical API link looks:

The key and value in the URL are crucial. For instance, in the above URL, the key is “position” with a value of “1”. Triggering this API from an external source stores the ‘key’ as a runtime variable in that strategy, influencing your trading conditions.

Below is an example of a strategy logic that buys Nifty futures when the “position” variable is set to 1:



In essence, Tradetron API Integration lets you code strategy rules externally, sending only signal commands to Tradetron as runtime variables.

How to Activate Tradetron APIs

Activating Tradetron APIs varies with each application.

In Amibroker, the InternetOpenURL() function can be used to call any API.

					ih = InternetOpenURL( "" );

printf( "API Response: " );

if( ih )


     while( ( str = InternetReadString( ih ) ) != "" )


         printf( "%s", str );


     InternetClose( ih );

For strategies in Python, here’s a sample code to invoke the Tradetron API:
					import requests

import json

url = ""

payload = ""

headers = {

  'Authorization': 'Bearer 9436e843-e5d9-42b1-b24a-2a4592320103',

  'Content-Type': 'application/json'


response = requests.request("GET", url, headers=headers, data=payload)


From TradingView, API calls can be made via webhook alerts, sending HTTP post requests to Tradetron. See the example below:
