I am examining the possibility of publishing signals for my existing, automated EOD system via WealthSignals. The system is already automated via my own software, I don't use WealthLab. Is there a signal publishing API or something I can use to send signals to your website from my software?

Thank you for your interest. You can send signals either through our WealthSignals Publisher tool (WSP) or manually from your system's page on the WS website. There is a signal publishing API which is available to the WSP exclusively. As per the WealthSignals Policy, to use the WSP you have to be a Wealth-Lab Pro customer.

Thanks for the reply.

So from that link, if I'm understanding correctly, your service is for EOD systems but the signals can't actually be published during market hours near the close? They must be published outside market hours? That won't work for my EOD systems. I trade at EOD but just before the close.

With these restrictions it doesn't seem to me you are serious about entering the system publishing business? Am I missing something?

Yes, that's right - prior to the market open.

Perhaps we're being too serious. The WealthSignals ad summarizes the idea of what WS is from a subscriber's point of view: "Subscribe to a trading system, Place your trades (est. 5min/day), Find something else to do!" Having to stick to the trading station screen during work hours and/or expect a signal to arrive some time before the close doesn't get together well with the WS ideology. Things may change in the future but currently it's true.

Sorry, I didn't realize this service wasn't automated for the customer by your software. Do you have plans for automation?

Downloading signals from subscribed systems to Wealth-Lab is possible via a built-in tool called WealthSignals Trader (more in the Wealth-Lab User Guide).

I'll keep an eye on your service and if you move to automation model that allows customers to follow systems with intraday signals I'll be back. Thanks.
