Soft Rate Limit

We ask that you limit trade requests to five (5) at a time. Every brokerage varies but we have found anything beyond five may be subject to issues.

  1. Find the universal_symbol_id of the security you want to trade using with the users account

Create a trading connection

By default connections are created with read-only permissions. To create a trading-enabled connection set the connectionType body parameter to trade when calling the login redirect endpoint.

Enable trading for existing connections

To enable trading for an existing connection you will have to ask the user to re-authorize access. To generate the re-authorize redirect URL set the reconnect body parameter to the ID of the existing connection when calling the login redirect endpoint along with connectionType=trade.
