Creating a webhook URL(s) for any of your stock broker or cryptocurrency exchange account connected with SignalStack enables receiving the alerts from a trading platform like TrendSpider or TradingView. These alerts are then converted into executed orders right into the connected brokerage or cryptocurrency exchange.
In this documentation, we will explore the steps to create webhooks with SignalStack.
NOTE: Before you start creating the webhooks, it is a prerequisite to connect your stock broker or cryptocurrency exchange first. For more information, please refer to this documentation- How to Connect Brokers.
Let’s get started 🚀
Step 1: Sign in to your SignalStack account and click on the Brokers & Webhooks from the left.
Step 2: From the list of connected brokers, click on the Create Webhook button of the account for which you want to create the webhook.
Step 3: The webhook address will be generated for the account.
Paste this webhook address while configuring the alert or trading bot inside your trading platform (like TrendSpider or TradingView) and write a request in the webhook message that you want the SignalStack to perform into your brokerage account whenever an alert is triggered.
The format of the webhook message can be understood from the example request attached right below the webhook address. You can use this example request as a playground and edit it as per your requirements.
For example, you can place market and limit orders automatically by adjusting the webhook message (payload) sent to SignalStack.
Note: You can create multiple webhooks for a stock broker or cryptocurrency exchange account added to SignalStack.
