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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
