Dunno if Twitter’s API is the best example @heytokyo , because it looks a bit like Tw has gradually constrained theirs over the years to the point of diminishing its dev community . But anyway you are right, APIs can be good and a multiplier. I believe an API is still in Freetrade’s plans.
I’m still not sure what “algorithmic trading” is. Is it something that would automate stock selection and portfolio construction for you?
“a survey revealed that 80% of new investors wanted a trading bot” - sounds interesting, can you link to the survey @changc ?
