Where do I get signals/TradingView indicators to use with my bot?

You can use the indicators built into the TradingView platform, or you can create your own strategy using Pine Script and send the alerts from TradingView to 3Commas via webhook.

My signals are created on TradingView, but they are not received by the Signal bot. What can be the reason?

  • You may use the wrong webhook URL; make sure it's https://api.3commas.io/webhooks/trading_view.

  • Alert is sending signal to a different trading pair that is set in your Signal bot. Please also remember that different exchanges name their pairs differently. Also there is a difference between Spot and Futures trading pair.

  • The exchange on TradingView is different than it's set in the Signal bot.

  • Sometimes webhook alert arrives with some of the blank parameters. Please review your logs and try another indicator. Also make sure to use Indicators for Indicators type of Signal bot and strategies for the Strategies type of Signal bot.
