Welcome to bta-lib

bta-lib stands for "backtrader ta-lib" (i.e.: "technical analysis library"). As the name already states it is part of the backtrader family.

It is a pandas-based library focused on being usable, re-usable and easy to use for developing and experimenting with new indicators.

And faithful to the contract the API offers: btalib.rsi delivers the actual RSI and not something similar, something with values that will converge in the future or well-known variants of the RSI.

Open Source - GitHub

Feel free to fork, clone, use, modify it ..


It could not be less than backtrader and that is why the library and its components are fully documented.
