tradingview indicators guide

TradingView provide users with computed indicators that is, indicators which return directly a BUY or SELL signal depending on their value, reducing the amount of complexity or knowledge required when configuring your own algo crypto trading bot.

TradingView indicators are available on their platform and via their API, which would normally require you to create your own crypto trading bot from scratch. However, If you’re using Aesir, our algorithmic cryptocurrency trading platform, you get instant, free access to the TradingView computed indicators to power up your strategy. So here’s how to create your own tradingview trading bot on Aesir.

Before we jump into it, make sure you create an account so you can follow along with the guide.

Add Your Exchange Keys

The first thing you want to do is navigate to Profile from the sidebar and add your API Keys for the exchange you want your crypto trading bot to work on. Aesir supports Binance, Kraken and Coinbase Pro with more exchanges to be added soon!

Once you’re on your profile, under the Exchange Keys section click Add Exchange. A modal will pop up prompting you to give your new Key a name, to select and Exchange and to populate with the relevant information. Note that you’ll need to generate an API key on the Exchange you’re looking to trade on beforehand.
