Unofficial API wrapper for the upcoming Schwab REST API

Project description

schwab-py: A Schwab API Wrapper



In 2020, Charles Schwab completed its purchase of TDAmeritrade. Prior to this purchase, TDAmeritrade operated (in the author’s personal opinion) the most high-quality, accessible, and cost effective trading API. It offers developers access to their TDAmeritrade accounts, trading in equities, ETFs, and options, plus a wide range of historical data.

Since this purchase, Schwab has begun to transition TDAmeritrade customers onto their own service. In late 2022, the announced the TDAmeritrade REST API will be included in this transition, which will happen over the course of 2023.

What is schwab-api?

The author of this repo (Alex Golec) had previous authored tda-api, an unofficial python wrapper around the previous TDAmeritrade API. This library is currently the most popular method of accessing this API, with a community of hundreds of active users on our Discord server.

While the details of the forthcoming Schwab API have not yet been announced, this repository serves as a placeholder for a python wrapper around it. It currently has no functionality. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.

Disclaimer: schwab-api is an unofficial API wrapper. It is in no way endorsed by or affiliated with TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab or any associated organization. Make sure to read and understand the terms of service of the underlying API before using this package. The authors accept no responsibility for any damage that might stem from use of this package.
