Non-Algorithmic Way (the Manual Way) to Use Alpaca Trading API

We want to share the recent developments that make it much easier to trade stocks manually without full-on trading algorithms.

You can now liquidate positions and cancel open orders manually on the web dashboard. These features are now updated on your web dashboard in both paper-trading and live-trading.

iOS & Android Mobile App

You can place new trades, cancel open orders, deactivate/activate API manually on the Alpaca Dashboard mobile app.

In addition to iOS app, we recently released Android app. This continues to be opensourced, and you can check its code on this GitHub repo.
