Back in the 2017/2018 Bitcoin (and altcoin) boom, I ran a Gunbot on both Bittrex and Poloniex for automated bot trading of altcoins. For trading Bitcoin, I used Kraken's exchange. But the Gunbot was pretty expensive to buy the program and I had to pay the same high fee for each exchange I used. It was also pretty complicated to set up and keep tweaking for optimum results.
Quadency is a platform that gives you access to both the current and historical market prices and also to trading APIs. Here are the exchanges that are currently supported by Quadency, with more scheduled to be added:
- Coinbase Pro
With the real-time market and historical data available it makes it simple to view order books and trades and candlestick charts. You can then use this information to devise and test the strategies you come up with for your automated trading.
For one price (not per exchange like I had to pay before) you can set your trade orders up across all the supported exchanges. You have the ability to execute or cancel all the activity across the board with one action, as well as see all your accounts, balances, and trade orders.
To create your free account is very easy. I provided my name, my email address, and selected a password. I immediately received a verification email and received this welcome message:

When I clicked the Begin Setup, I was taken to a screen with 4 steps:
(1) Welcome Aboard - with information about setting up and using 2FA for security and also a link to information on getting and using your API keys
(2) Choose Your Exchange - this provided buttons for each of the exchanges supported, and also provided a box to suggest an exchange that was not already offered.
(3) Enter credentials - This is the screen where you enter the API key that you will generate on your selected exchange. Once you select an exchange (you must already have an account with that exchange and have 2FA enabled) it gives you step-by-step instructions on how to generate your API Key.
NOTE: the "Enter credentials" area has NOTHING to do with KYC, which is not required. It only concerns verifying your account with the exchange you are selecting and then establishing your API for the trading or reporting.

(4) Begin! And it took me straight to my Bittrex account information and provided several charts for my perusal. I picked one of them to show - a two-year chart - which shows most of my previous activity in the 2017/2018 period when I was running that expensive Gunbot. Not much activity in the never-ending Bear market and that's when I stopped trading with the Gunbot.

So now for the pricing - how much does this service cost? They have three plans:
It's basically for Monitoring and Reporting. You get unlimited exchange accounts and wallet tracking plus some management tools for your orders and portfolios. You have a monthly trading limit of $1000 per month and you can perform 5 Backtests a day with automated trading - get you feet wet and see how it all works.
With this plan, you get everything in the Hodler account plus Profit/Loss reporting and a Performance Dashboard. Your trading limit is upped to $20K per month, you get 50 Backtests per day, and you get 1 live bot.
Again, everything in the first two plans, plus a lot more. Unlimited trading. A customizable trading screen, advanced order types, 200 Backtests a day, 10 live bots, PLUS the APIs and Market data!
If you want to purchase a plan you can use crypto, Stripe, or Coinbase Commerce. You can cancel any time with no cancellation fee.
