CI CodeQL License: GPL v3 Python 3.7 Discord

Cryptocurrency trading bot that allows users to create strategies and then backtest, optimize, simulate, or run live bots using them. Telegram integration has been added to support easier and remote trading.

Algobot requires at least Python 3.7 and not over Python 3.9.


Once you have cloned or unpacked the source code locally, run the following commands from your terminal in that directory.

pip install pipenv
pipenv install

If your install fails, please make sure to have Visual Studio Build Tools installed.

Please note that Algobot requires TA-LIB. You can view instructions on how to download TA-LIB from here. For Windows users, it's best to download the .whl package for your Python install and pip install it. For Linux and MacOS users, there's excellent documentation available in the link provided above.

For Windows, it's easiest to perform the following:

  1. pipenv shell
  2. pip install <your .whl file>

You can find the .whl files here.


To start Algobot, run:

pipenv run bot

Set DEBUG=1 to enable debug level logging.
