Upload your Strategy

Previously...


You have created a strategy by:

  • Coding the complete strategy from the Create page.

OR

Now...


You are now ready to upload your strategy into your AlgoBulls account for Backtesting, Paper Trading and/or Real Trading.

Before you start...


  • Make sure you have an active working AlgoBulls account ready to go!
  • Open a Jupyter Notebook.
  • If you have coded the strategy yourself and not used a ready strategy from the pyalgostrategypool package, then make sure your strategy file (.py) and the Jupyter Notebook are in the same folder.

Let's Start...


Run the following code snippets into the Jupyter Notebook one by one (or all together).

Import statements


import inspect
from pyalgotrading.algobulls import AlgoBullsConnection

Import the strategy class


Perform the below step either to import a ready strategy OR to import your own created strategy.

from pyalgostrategypool.strategy_ema_regular_order import StrategyEMARegularOrder
from strategy_sma_regular_order import StrategySMARegularOrder

Establish a connection to the AlgoBulls Platform


algobulls_connection = AlgoBullsConnection()
algobulls_connection.get_authorization_url()
The output of the above step is:

Please login to this URL with your AlgoBulls credentials and get your developer access token: https://app.algobulls.com/user/login

You will need to login to your AlgoBulls account and fetch the access token from:

Settings -> General -> Developer Options

(See How)

Once you have the access token, set it in the code as shown here:

algobulls_connection.set_access_token('4365817b795770ea31040a21ad29c8e78b63ad88')
Replace the token you have copied with the token in the code above.


You can print your strategy code once to verify if this is the correct code before uploading it to the platform. This step is optional.

print(inspect.getsource(StrategySMARegularOrder))

Upload your Strategy


Upload your strategy as shown in the code below.

algobulls_connection.create_strategy(StrategySMARegularOrder)

Re-upload your Strategy after modifications


If you are re-uploading your strategy after some changes, then use the overwrite switch as shown here.

algobulls_connection.create_strategy(StrategySMARegularOrder, overwrite=True)

What's Next...


You are now ready to test your uploaded strategy and perform Backtesting, Paper Trading and/or Real Trading with it.
