Introducing OpenAlgo V1.0: The Ultimate Open-Source Algorithmic Trading Framework for Indian Markets

2 min read

OpenAlgo V1.0 is an open-source algorithmic trading platform to automate your trading strategies using Amibroker, Tradingview, Metatrader, Python etc. Designed with the modern trader in mind, it facilitates seamless interactions with multiple brokers through a minimalist and intuitive user interface.

OpenAlgo

What’s really cool about OpenAlgo is that it’s made especially for individual traders – the kind of people trading on their own, using popular tools like Amibroker, Tradingview, or even Excel. It’s something you can set up on your own computer, whether you’re using Windows or Linux, giving you total control. You don’t have to worry about someone else messing with your trading or your private information. It’s all about making trading as straightforward and secure as possible for you.

OpenAlgo Supported Brokers

OpenAlgo is like a Swiss Army knife for traders. Imagine taking all the best bits of modern tech – stuff like Python for coding, SQLiteDB for organizing data, and Tailwind CSS for making things look good – and mixing them together. That’s what we did with OpenAlgo, all thanks to the smart use of ChatGPT-4. It started as just a fun experiment but has grown into something much bigger: a tool that anyone can use for free to do their automated trading.


Key Features of OpenAlgo

  • Multi-platform Automation: Directly integrate with leading trading platforms to automate trading strategies.
  • Minimalist UI: A clean and intuitive interface provides immediate access to essential trading books (order, trade, position, and holdings) and API logs for streamlined operation.
  • Comprehensive API Support: Enjoy broad functionality with APIs for order placement, modification, cancellation, and more.
  • Multi-Broker Compatibility: Initially supporting Angel, Upstox, and Zerodha, 5 Paisa, Fyers, Kotak, Dhan, and ICICI Direct and have plans to extend to other brokers.
  • Flexible Access: Utilize ngrok for custom domain support, facilitating access to the application and trading automation from anywhere.
