We heard you. We are aware of how opening a brokerage account might be a hurdle for some developers. It can be an undesired step and ultimately preventative of someone building something cool (I’m looking at all the international developers out there).
So, we are removing that hurdle.
This summer, we’ll be releasing the Tradier Developer Sandbox. You will be able to sign up (for free) for the sandbox needing only a name and email address.
The sandbox will give you access to as many of the brokerage APIs as possible. Initially, we’ll be launching with delayed market data and watchlist APIs. We’ve got full paper trading in the works and hope to launch it this Fall.
Visit http://beta.tradier.com to sign up for early access and get updates on the product as it becomes available.
