Setup guide for adding an email provider

Email Provider setup guide

  1. 1.
    Prepare subscription and a main account that you use to login to TradingView
  2. 2.
    Create a new Gmail address dedicated for the bots. (important step, because using your main email for this would cause lots of inconvenience)
  3. 3.
    Enable [ "Less secure apps"] in your new account (make sure that you are logged in the correct Gmail account when doing this)
  4. 4.
    Make sure IMAP is enabled as a service in your Gmail settings.
  5. 5.
    Add the dedicated email credentials as a provider in Settings - Email Providers:
    • Name:
      • Name of this Email Provider (can be anything)
    • Email:
    • Password:
      • The password of Gmail account above
    • Approved Contacts:
      • Sender emails which are allowed to be used as signals (e.g. [email protected]) (if left empty, emails from any sender will be used as potential signals)
  6. 6.
    Create a filter on your main email account to forward emails from TradingView to your new dedicated account.
  7. 7.
    Restart the HTS.
  8. 8.
    You are ready to setup alerts and bots.
Adding an Email Provider creates a "Processed Signals" label in that email. Deleting this label will make the bot work incorrect which will lead to losses. Do not delete this label.
Linux users need to make sure they have installed mono-vbnc on their machine. sudo apt install mono-vbnc
  • Multiple emails coming in for different Email Bots simultaneously are handled just fine (tested max - 9, but potentially there is no limit)
  • You can combine multiple signals for 1 action. If all the signal are received within X seconds, the action will be executed.
  • Can be used with any signal provider (not only TradingView) as long as they can send emails
  • You can run multiple bots on the same signal email.
  • No limit on the number of signals per bot.
  • Spot, Margin & Leverage.
  • You need to enable "less secure apps" on your account. Hence the recommendation for creating new Email specifically for the bot.
  • HTS uses IMAP protocol, be sure it's activated in your Gmail settings.
  • You can't use the same alert for triggering 2 different bots. Use different alert text for each bot.
