Constructor

Valr({ key, secret, key2, secret2 })

Parameter Description
key, secret optional API key and secret
key2, secret2 optional Secondary API key and secret

key and secret are required for authenticated API requests.

A secondary pair of API key and secret can be provided, in which case the authenticated API calls will be made alternatively, one with the primary key/secret one with the secondary key/secret. This feature can be used to take advantage of double API rate limit.

REST API

All methods return promises.

Properties

apiCallRate

Gives the current rate of API calls. The property is read only. The counter is reset at the start of each minute.

It can be used by applications to limit the API call rate to prevent HTTP error code 429 (too many requests) responses from VALR server.

See VALR API documentation for applicable rate limitations: Rate limiting

The methods return a WebSocket object. The WebSocket class that is used to create the websocket can be specified as parameter.

newTradeWebSocket([WebSocketClass, options])

Establishes a WebSocket connection to receive streaming updates about Trade data.

Events subscribing and unsubscribing

Once you open a connection to 'Account', you are automatically subscribed to all messages for all events on the 'Account' WebSocket connection. You will start receiving message feeds pertaining to your VALR account. For example, you will receive messages when your balance is updated or when a new trade is executed on your account.

On the other hand, When you open a connection to 'Trade', in order to receive message feeds about trading data, you must subscribe to events you are interested in on the 'Trade' WebSocket connection.

When you are no longer interested in receiving messages for certain events on the 'Trade' WebSocket connection, you can send a unsubscribe message.

See VALR Websocket API documentation on how to subscribe and unsubscribe to 'Trade' events.
