Getting Started

Welcome to the Option Alpha technical documentation which details the functionality of the autotrading platform. These technical docs are a work in progress and we're always open to feedback.

Option Alpha built the industry's first fully automated, no-code trading platform. Our browser-based software automates entire strategies (stocks or options), making decisions based on technical indicators, recurring events, time until expiration, profit-taking and stop-loss levels, and so much more.

The Option Alpha autotrading platform is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tool that allows users to create end-to-end automated trading strategies. This is accomplished by ingesting our own live data and giving users the ability to interpret that data through Decision Trees inside Automations.

This documentation is designed for users looking for a more technical understanding of how the autotrading platform works under the hood. If you are a brand new user, we recommend starting with the Help Center, which features many helpful articles, videos, and FAQs. If you are interested in more technical documentation, this is the place for you.

Have a question? We may have already answered it in the Help Center.
