(We need to add a "bot" to telegram which will communicate to the outside world)





Step 2:


Click "Open Telegram Desktop" (assuming you have Telegram installed on your desktop) ...


Step 3:


Type /start


Step 4:


Type /newbot


It will ask you what do you want to call it:


Step 5 :


Call it "News Channel" or something appropriate.


Take note of the API token as we will be using this later to connect.


That's it, you created a bot and named it :-) easy!





Now we want to get your newly created Bot's ID (so things can be sent here) think of it like a Postal Code (or ZIP code)


Step 6:


At the very top of Telegram, there's a Search box. type "get id"





Step 7:


Type /start


You'll now be able to see your Chat ID. Which we need for the next part:


Step 8:


Go to https://www.integromat.com/ and sign in (I used Google to authenticate, but it's up to you)



Step 9:


Type "RSS" into that field and click "Continue"


Step 10:


Click on that large question mark and click RSS for confirmation.




Step 11:


Click the top option: "Watch RSS feed items"





Step 12:


Insert whatever news feed you like here:


For trading we can use the myfbook streaming live feed (it's really, really good)

Step 13:


Click Ok but change the 2 to 1. Then that way you won't be pinged twice with two different news articles at the same time.





Step 14:


Click OK to the next screen "From now on"







Step 15: click on the + arrow to add another module (aka Telegram)





Step 16:


Type in "Telegram" into the search field





Step 17:


Now select the top option "Send a Text Message"





Step 18:


Click "Add"






Step 19:


Find your Botfather ID on Telegram (you received this after naming the bot)


It'll look like:


You can use this token to access HTTP API: xxxxxxxxx: :XXXXXX H8rDcyyY1hcuyvC30J9rrQ3h_22w


Step 20:


Insert that long string of code into the Token box






Step 21


Insert your ID into the Chat ID part and click "OK"




(side note: See Step 7 to obtain the Chat ID)
