Cryptohopper TradingView WebHooks


TradingView Alerts#

With the TradingView app, you can send signals to your hoppers through TradingView Alerts by using WebHooks. The TradingView Alerts work with all Hopper subscriptions, including the free Pioneer subscription! So the only things you need is a Hopper and a paid TradingView account.

How do TradingView Alerts function in your Hopper?

It’s important to mention that trades opened by TradingView Alerts don’t follow all the settings of the base config; this is intended behavior. Base config settings that won’t be followed are;

  • Max open positions and max open positions per coin: When using Tradingview Alerts, the “max open positions” and “max open positions per coins” are not taken into account. If you want to open a limited number of positions for a coin, ensure you configure the following to your preferences in the Alert on TradingView:

  • TradingView Alerts won't open Trailing Stop-Buy, DCA, and Short trades. These can only be used when you get signals from a strategy designed in Cryptohopper’s Strategy Designer.

Features of the Base config that will be taken into account are:

  • Stop-Loss,
  • Trailing Stop-Loss,
  • Take Profit,
  • Auto-Close.

When using TradingView Alerts, you’re not limited to the coins selected in your Base config.

How to configure TradingView Alerts?

First go to TradingView and select a chart of a trading pair that’s available on the exchange you use for trading. Select an indicator and configure it to your liking. Then click on the Alert button shown below.

The next step is determining the conditions and how often you want to send a TradingView Alert to your Hopper. The conditions and options shown differ for every indicator selected.

The expiration time refers to how long the Alert should be active. The Webhook URL is the only necessary option for alert options. You can find the Webhook URL here.

The next step is using the Alert Generator shown in Cryptohopper’s app:

  1. Select the Hopper that needs to receive the TradingView Alert.
  2. Mention the name of the coin you want to buy in capital letters. You don’t have to mention the quote currency as the Hopper will know what quote currency you’re using in your selected Hopper.
  3. Determine the action, this is either a Buy or Sell. If you want to use TradingView Alerts for buying and selling, you will need to create two Alerts. You can’t use dynamic parameters that TradingView offers.
  4. Determine whether you want to use Limit or Market Orders.
  5. Click on Generate and paste the alert message into the alert on TradingView.
  6. Optional: If you want to include a set Take profit, add parameter: take_profit:X The X can be any percentage you want to use.

The screenshots below show what the alert will look like in the Alert Generator and on TradingView.

The last step is to click on Create in the TradingView Alert. You’ve now set up a TradingView alert that will generate buy or sell orders in your Hopper!

Additional info about using TradingView Alerts in Cryptohopper

If your TradingView Alert got triggered but no position has been opened, then you don’t have enough funds available to open a new position. Additionally, it’s not possible to use additional parameters that TradingView offers for Alerts.
