No-Code is now Yes, Code! (If You Want)

Here at TrendSpider, we’re constantly innovating to empower traders like yourself with the tools you need to thrive in these dynamic markets. While we offer hundreds of indicators and data sets with which to discover opportunities and build out trading systems using our visual scripting functionality, for the more discerning trader, this simply is not enough.

If you have custom indicators or data sets that you rely on, you deserve to be able to use them in all facets of your workflow, from scanning and alerting to strategy testing and more. Today, we’re thrilled to unveil a groundbreaking new update that will allow you to do just that; Introducing Full Scripting Integration.

Is Visual Scripting not cutting it? No problem. With our JavaScript scripting capabilities, if you can code it, you can implement it. Think of it this way: You can now use custom scripts anywhere you use a moving average, and there are some BIG implications to consider.

This Update Is Not Just For Developers

While this update speaks to developers and coders, you don’t have to be one to take advantage of it! That custom indicator you just picked up in the TrendSpider Trading Tools Store or the one your friend sent you because they just can’t live without it can now be used across the platform!

Use Custom Scripts Everywhere

With this update, we’ve rolled out the green carpet for your ideas to truly take shape.

  • Scan The Markets: You can now scan the markets using your custom indicators without compromise. Whether you want to hunt down your favorite custom indicator setups or implement sophisticated trading logic, the power is in your hands to find exactly what you’re looking for.
  • Get Notified: Just because you’re not watching doesn’t mean the platform isn’t. With dynamic and multi-factor alerts, you can now be notified when your favorite custom conditions are being met, at your desk or on the go.
  • Test Your Tools: You can now fine-tune the entries and exits or your strategy by incorporating custom indicator conditions. Take it a step further and code your entire strategy into a single indicator so that you can apply things like statistical approaches and unique trailing stops. You choose how you put your custom indicators to the test.
  • Alternative Data At Your Fingertips: Unlock the full potential of your trading system by tapping into a wealth of alternative data sources. From news sentiment to unusual options activity and fundamental data, custom scripts offer the tools to integrate diverse data sets seamlessly into your trading workflows.
  • Streamlined Development and Debugging: With Chrome for Developers, developing and debugging your custom indicators has never been easier. Plus, with automatic warm-up depth detection and the ability to dictate parameters in your code, you’re always in control.

As with all updates, we hope you find this new functionality useful to your process! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our support team via the ‘Contact Us’ button in the bottom right corner of your chart view.

Additionally, if you have custom indicators or data sets that you rely on that are not yet available in Javascript, pass this blog post over to their creator! Perhaps they’d be interested in building a JS version and adding it to the TrendSpider Trading Tools Store!
