A Python library for the unofficial Avanza API

Project description


A Python library for the unofficial Avanza API. This library is based on the existing JavaScript library Avanza.

Please note that this is only a proof of concept, hence not meant to be used by anyone.

It might also be valuable to note that I am not affiliated with Avanza Bank AB in any way. The underlying API can be taken down or changed without warning at any point in time.

Getting a TOTP Secret

NOTE: Since May 2018 two-factor authentication is required to log in.

Here are the steps to get your TOTP Secret:

  1. Go to Profil > Inställningar > Sajtinställningar > Inloggning och utloggning > Användarnamn > Tvåfaktorsinloggning and click "Återaktivera". (Only do this step if you have already set up two-factor auth.)
  2. Click "Aktivera" on the next screen.
  3. Select "Annan app för tvåfaktorsinloggning".
  4. Click "Kan du inte scanna QR-koden?" to reveal your TOTP Secret.
  5. Generate the TOTP code using the python code below and paste the TOTP code in the field below where you found the TOTP Secret.
  6. Done! From now on all you have to do is supply your secret in the constructor as in the examples below.

Generate TOTP code:

import hashlib
import pyotp
totp = pyotp.TOTP('MY_TOTP_SECRET', digest=hashlib.sha1)


Authenticate and fetch account overview:

from avanza import Avanza
avanza = Avanza({
    'username': 'MY_USERNAME',
    'password': 'MY_PASSWORD',
    'totpSecret': 'MY_TOTP_SECRET'

overview = avanza.get_overview()

Get info about a certain account

from avanza import Avanza, TimePeriod

avanza = Avanza({
    'username': 'MY_USERNAME',
    'password': 'MY_PASSWORD',
    'totpSecret': 'MY_TOTP_SECRET'

report = avanza.get_insights_report(

Place an order

from avanza import Avanza, OrderType

avanza = Avanza({
    'username': 'MY_USERNAME',
    'password': 'MY_PASSWORD',
    'totpSecret': 'MY_TOTP_SECRET'

result = avanza.place_order(

Subscribe to real time data

import asyncio
from avanza import Avanza, ChannelType

def callback(data):
    # Do something with the quotes data here

async def subscribe_to_channel(avanza: Avanza):
    await avanza.subscribe_to_id(
        "19002", # OMX Stockholm 30

def main():
    avanza = Avanza({
        'username': 'MY_USERNAME',
        'password': 'MY_PASSWORD',
        'totpSecret': 'MY_TOTP_SECRET'
