If you want to connect to a cryptocurrency exchange like Coinbase, then you will need to submit the API credentials of your exchange that can be fetched from the account settings. To make this process easy for you, SignalStack offers the link to the exchange's documentation explaining the steps to fetch the API credentials.

Stage III: Connect to TrendSpider

While creating the Trading Bot in TrendSpider or setting up Dynamic or Multi-Factor Alert, you can configure the notification with a SignalStack webhook URL, as generated in the previous stage above, and send it in the JSON format like the following:

Sample Webhook Payload (JSON) featuring symbol, action, and quantity:

{"symbol":"AAPL","quantity":1,"action":"buy"}

Whenever TrendSpider will send the alert to SignalStack via Webhook, SignalStack will automatically send it to the connected broker or cryptocurrency exchange to execute the action defined in the Webhook Payload.
