Reference: Do I need Free or Paid version in TradingView?

You can automate complete strategies, and not just indicators using the TradingView free version. That’s right! explore 1000s of strategies from public library using free Tradingview and free APIBridge (paper trading). We will demonstrate this using SuperTrend strategy (not SuperTrend indicator).

The TradingView free plan allows to run max 2 alerts at same time, which are sufficient to automate one strategy. To demonstrate, we will pick the “Super Trend 2 MACD” strategy from public library. This strategy uses both ST and MACD.
