So many types of automated trading use-cases
Since the public release of Alpaca’s commission-free trading API, many developers and tech-savvy people have joined our community slack to discuss various aspects of automated trading. We are excited to see many have already started running algorithms in production, while others are testing their algorithms with our paper trading feature, which allows users to play with our API in a real-time simulation environment.
When we started thinking about a trading API service earlier this year, we were looking at only a small segment of algo trading. However, the more users we talked with, the more we realized there are many use cases for automated trading, particularly when considering different time horizons, tools, and objectives.
Today, as a celebration of our public launch and as a welcome message to our new users, we would like to highlight various automated trading strategies to provide you with ideas and opportunities you can explore for your own needs.
Please note that some concepts overlap with others, and not every item necessarily talks about a specific strategy per se, and some of the strategies may not be applicable to the current Alpaca offering.Read More
