Now you can place orders manually

We are excited to announce a manual trading widget on the main dashboard today! We recognize that trading with an API or algos doesn’t always need to be fully automated, and we hope you find a manual trading widget useful and convenient.

You can always check our user documentation for how orders work at Alpaca.

Alpaca API lets you build and trade with real-time market data for free.

At Alpaca, we are committed to building the go-to investing platform for the developer community. With that said, in the next couple of months, we will be working on adding basic trading features on the dashboard that enhance Alpaca’s core API offering. Also, we will be planning off-line meetups here and there as well. Please stay tuned for that!

Thank you for your support and please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any feedback or any issues that you may find.
