As we learned our investing strategy required automation to be effective, we went searching for a highly accessible and highly-rated platform to meet our needs. Our prior broker did not offer automated trading capability; this was what brought us to Alpaca. While the functionality of the platform for rapid execution and easy interface has been great, I have especially appreciated the responsiveness and personal attention the Alpaca team has offered to meet our needs. I look forward to growing with them in years to come.

I enjoyed and loved the Alpaca platform. I have spent countless hours making scripts to work with it, and always recommend it to anyone who is looking into trying algo trading.

Alpaca has been a fantastic platform!
