The Alpaca Paper Trading API is used during the software development process, to test the algorithms in a simulated environment. This API is a Alpaca platform Broker Functions service for Paper trading, that is a real-time simulation environment to test your code. The Broker Functions side behaves like the live account except the orders aren’t routed to real exchanges. Alpaca provides a way to build and trade with real-time market data for free.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
