Run Example Algorithms
The following is a list of working example algorithms built by Alpaca and the developer community. They can be immediately deployed in paper or live trading, and best of all, they’re free to use and customize for your own purposes.
We want to emphasize that these examples are meant to be instructive and demonstrate some of the possibilities of the Alpaca platform. They have not been analyzed or tested for profitability. Use in live trading at your own discretion.
The following algos can be tested if you have an Alpaca Paper Only Account or an Alpaca Brokerage Account:
The algos below can be tested only if you have an Alpaca Brokerage Account (if you try to run these without an Alpaca Brokerage Account, you’ll get an error that the algo cannot pull the appropriate market data source):
