Market conditions are always evolving, and so are the factors that drive these shifts in the market. Algorithmic trading has gained the focus of traders and tech leaders and builders alike in the past few years. But the difference in the algorithmic trading landscape today, and a few years back is this: back in 2010s, algo trading was simply a buzzword – but now, algorithmic trading is seeing interest outside institutional investing.
Today, algorithmic trading has already made inroads into the Indian retail investor market and it is no longer just cool talk. Now, you can kickstart your algorithmic trading practice within a matter of days, without worrying about a tech-company like infrastructure to back it up. The time has come to trade smart, not hard – that’s why, Angel Broking is proud to announce its SmartAPI – something that will change the way algorithmic trading has been done in India for years to come.
SmartAPI: Making algorithmic trading accessible for everyone
SmartAPI is not built solely for experienced programmers. If you are interested in algorithmic trading, then SmartAPI is for you no matter who you are – an experienced investor, a fintech company looking to build the next smartest trading platform, an advisor who is looking to upscale their practice, a novice trader who is merely getting their feet wet in the markets, or a tech enthusiast who wants to fiddle with code to understand the markets better. The best part about SmartAPI is that it is free of cost – which means that you can sign up for it as you read this article.
We take care of the routine stuff – and we do it well
When we built the SmartAPI, we wanted to make it accessible not just in terms of cost, but also in terms of usability. That’s why, SmartAPI let’s you do what you are great at, and what you want to do, instead of making you focus your efforts on coding. Currently, SmartAPI is available in five languages – Python, Java, R, Go and NodeJS, and we are already in the process of releasing SmartAPI modules in a couple more languages very soon. SmartAPI modules are well documented, and we provide you with plug-and-play functionalities for doing the routine stuff, like streaming live market data, historical data, executing trades, and even maintaining the user’s portfolio.
