I am trying to do some integration between analysis tool to TradeStation, I mean to drive external signals to the trade station.

Its a bit tricky, one tool is a web app and the TradeStation looks a bit closed system.

Any suggestions?

it will depend a bit on what you need exactly. Besides charting 3rd party historical data, you could also make external values available to a strategy or indicator (for example using Global Dictionaries as described here:

Thank you for the quick response.

I am trying to purchase rest API from and stream it to TradeStation.
the question is how I can bridge between this API to the global dictionary?

There is a way to connect to the rest API from inside the TradeStation without handling an intermediate server?

I'm trying to figure out my costs before purchasing that API or funding again my TS account
