If you haven’t please visit Alpaca and sign up. Feel free to check out the other tutorials in this series at Alpaca Resources.
After logging in to your account at https://alpaca.markets, your account should show you both of these options on the screen, where you can sign up either as an individual or a business entity.
The next screen will ask you to choose your taxation status. If you are not a U.S. tax resident, click “No” and move on to step 3.
Check out “How to open an account as a US resident” in the onboarding guide series if you are a US resident.
That should lead you to the page where you will be able to register for our invite only beta program for non-US residents to open live trading accounts.
